Blu-ray Release: Exodus: Gods and Kings

March 24, 2015

Exodus Blu-rayLast week, 20th Century Fox released Exodus: Gods and Kings on Blu-ray.  Directed by Ridley Scott, this Bible epic recounts the story of Moses (Christian Bale), and how he came to free his people from the Egyptian rule of his adopted brother Ramses (Joel Edgerton).

There are some stirring special effects, and the production design is impressive and authentic, matched by a dedicated performance from Christian Bale.  But with a pretty uninspired screenplay, Exodus: Gods and Kings is a largely middle of the road swords and sandals epic, that runs overly long and dry at a whopping 150 minutes.

The Blu-ray includes commentary with Ridley Scott and co-screenwriter Jeffrey Caine, deleted and extended scenes, as well as a historical guide.

Exodus: Gods and Kings is 150 minutes and rated PG.
