‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Early Reviews: Ridley Scott’s Epic Draws Mixed Reaction The first time Ridley Scott let slip that he was planning a new movie epic about Moses, he said what interested him about the Biblical figure “isn’t the big stuff that everybody knows.” However, as trailers for the film – titled Exodus: Gods and Kings – began to hit the scene, it quickly became obvious this movie isn’t so much the “untold story” of Moses (played here by Christian Bale); it’s more just The Ten Commandments, redone with modern tentpole values, actors, and the self-seriousness of Scott’s previous historical epics (Kingd
