Exodus - Gods and Kings : An awful movie, but a visual wonder

Ridley Scott, the director of Gladiator, one of the movie in everyone's favourite list. Exodus:Gods and Kings is the latest movie from him.

The film is so strong in visual department featuring total Egypt set located at Spain. 3D experience was quite good in the scenes of plagues created by God against Egyptians.

It was poor casting which spoiled the movie and the character building was pathetic. Aaron Paul (that Yo guy from Breaking Bad and Marshal in Need for Speed) and the Batman fame, Christian Bale.

I did watch this film in Ratnamahal, Ongole. I didn't expect such a 3D movie experience. It was overwhelming for me in the first few minutes for the 3D visuals and expected an epic film. But in the end it was very disappointing. The movie dragged with stunning visuals and pathetic script work. There was no emotional attachment to the characters. The movie was concentrated on the visual side forgetting the story side.

After coming out from the theatre and searched for what was happened in the movie on internet. And came to understand the movie title that meaning of Exodus is 'going out'. The Moses (Bale) lead the Hebrews who were working as slaves under the Egyptians across the red sea.

Moses trained the Hebrews to fight against Egyptians when he was sent by the God. The training sequences were good to watch.
