Exodus: Gods and Kings
‘Let my people goooooooooooo…’ Director Ridley Scott rounds up an army of thespian talent including Christian Bale, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro and we’re guessing roughly 10,000,000 digital extras. Yes, in this year of ‘Noah’, ‘Pompeii’ and ‘Hercules’, the big Daddy of historical epics is most definitely this megabudget Biblical barnstormer from the ‘Gladiator’ man himself. Now, we’re not entirely convinced about the whole sword-and-sandal thing – ‘Gladiator’ was great, but it’s been downhill ever since – but if anyone can pull off the kind of spectacle, special effects and seriousness the Moses story requires, it’s our Ridley. And Christian Bale as Moses? Yeah, okay, we’ll buy that.
