This past Tuesday evening (December 30, 2014), my son and I saw the recently released movie, Exodus:Gods and Kings. I’ve been calling that film a “remake of sorts” of the 1956 film, The Ten Commandments. Never mind the awfully silly social media fusses made over what the skin color or ethnicity of the characters were “supposed to be” in that movie. Fuck all that dumb shit about race because Exodus:Gods and Kings is after all, just a movie. Being “just a movie” doesn’t mean that I can’t give an assessment about the film itself, so here it is.
Exodus:Gods and Kings is in my view, a terrible movie! Actor Christian Bale SUCKS as Moses; and so does “God”. Yeah, the great Almighty sucked too as the lazy, pass-the-buck, so-called-all-powerful, “I AM”.
Give me a break!
I hated ninety-eight percent of the film. The two percent which I did like was the one battle scene (shown early in the film) and the one Ben-Hur-like scene where horses and chariots run over people. Those who have seen the 1959 movie Ben-Hur will remember the scenes where people got ran over by horses and chariots. I love seeing that shit in movies depicting ancient times!
My son happen to like Exodus:Gods and Kings but then, he’s young; what the fuck does he know? LOL!
Exodus:Gods and Kings has earned my red X of disapproval in films to recommend for watching. UGH!
