Christian humble?

Let me say immediately. Visually, technically, this film is a wonder and for that alone it deserves to be seen but then. Oh brother. Christian Bale, one of my favorites among the post-De Niro crop, is cast as Moses, you know? Moses - the man chosen by God for his humbleness. Christian's Moses blazes with self confidence. The Godly horrors known as plagues are a cinematic jaw dropping experience but when it returns to the actual drama. Oh brother. How can it possibly be? When the great Ridley Scott made his Robin Hood (did you see it?)his star Russell Crowe went to a talk show to promote the movie and called the Erroll Flynn version, "crap" - You see? I think that's at the center of the problem.

Had promise but failed miserably.

First hour I was thinking this is a good retelling of a great story. Moses and Pharaoh were portrayed as men, both with faults but neither good or evil. I usually hate religious epics sooner as I feel I'm being preached to. But then around 75 minutes I saw the creation of the Israeli Defence Force, you can push history so far, but not by centuries. After fleeing Egypt they did hold a small area for awhile, but then fell under the domain of all the great competing powers in the area. When the superpowers exhausted themselves in war, Jerusalem was theirs. Until the Romans arrived, then the Muslims followed by the Crusaders. Israel is a powerful state now, but only due to the diaspora or more importantly those in the USA. Why ruin what is a great story by rewriting it and history.

Everything depended upon the casting of Moses

Ridley Scott has never made a bad looking film but he has seldom made an excellent one.

Several reasons, including:

* He seems incapable of discriminating between a bad script and a good script.

* He is dependent upon the casting.

But this was a film worth watching. It caught the majesty, simultaneously barbaric and spiritual, of its Biblical source.

The script was variable but had its moments.

But what let this film down was the total miscasting of Christian Bale who showed no depth in the role of Moses, at all. Charlton Heston was more nuanced in the Ten Commandments and Charlton Heston was not noted of being a nuancing actor!

But the film, for those of us interested in the Bible, was still worth watching for its production values, some powerfully mystic moments, such as the falling star precipitating the parting of the Red Sea, and the utterly gorgeous Maria Valverde as Moses' wife Zipporah.
