Synopsis

Brotherly love turns to bitter hatred in Ridley Scott's epic retelling of the biblical book of Exodus. Noble warrior Moses (Christian Bale) is banished to the wilderness by power-crazed step-brother Ramses (Joel Edgerton) after being outed as a Hebrew. However, after answering the call of God, he returns to Egypt to lead the Israelites out of slavery to freedom, via the famous parting of the Red Sea. Director Scott grandly fashions a spectacular biopic - the plague sequence is worth the price of admission alone - with earnestly solid performances from Bale and Edgerton.
