Well we got two biblical films in 2014 and just like Darren Aronosfky's "Noah" Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is a underwhelming and uninspired film that while may have amazing visuals lacks a decent script to make it anything more than just another average movie from it's director. You know i was really hoping this movie was going to be great the trailers had shades of "Gladiator" in them and it made me hopeful that this wouldn't be like his last films but sadly i was wrong. The acting was decent but could have been better not because a lack of effort from the actors which i really liked for the most part but from the lack of a good script so the actors never really got a chance to show off their acting skills. Now just like his previous films "Robin Hood and Prometheus" they too lacked a good story but succeeded in effects this too looks like it falls into that category of his movies. Seeing the great plagues being brought upon the land of Egypt was awesome and was actually better than what i thought it was going to be so that does make up for its script but just a little bit.
Overall i give it a 5.0 I don't even care that the film was getting blasted for having white actors play Egyptian's and honestly people should really get over this type of shit i mean come on its Hollywood we're talking about here.
