The master of the epic film, Ridley Scott (Prometheus, Gladiator, Alien, Blade Runner) combines this spectacle of 3D visuals and CGI with a story with an old fashioned feel as Moses (Christian Bale) takes on the might of an empire, defiantly rising up against the Egyptian Pharoah, Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and unleashing a terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

With a stellar cast and thousands of extras and jaw dropping visuals, Scott brings this Biblical story of a fight for equality to the screen in a manner truly epic in every sense.

Scott foregrounds Moses’ relationship with his adopted brother Ramses, chronicling his change from a Prince of Egypt to fabled prophet and liberator, where, after killing an Egyptian slave-master, he encounters the God of Israel speaking to him from within a ‘burning bush’.

The Ten Plagues – as Egypt is attacked by locusts, frogs and more – are stunning in 3D, together with the breath-taking parting of the Red Sea as Moses leads the Exodus of the Israelites out of Egypt following receipt of the Ten Commandments.

These sequences, combined with strong performances from the top ensemble cast, ensure the film’s status as a modern classic epic.
