Non-Biblical / Non-Scriptural Message Mar 9, 2007
"Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine" "Test all things: hold fast what is good." (1Tim4:16 & 2Thess5:21)
Unfourtunantely this is yet another Non-Biblical movie "about the Bible". It simply takes a basic outline of the Biblical story and slaps an entirely different message into it. I was appalled at how faithless, rebelious and unbelieving Moses, Aaron and Miriam were portrayed. Moses is sadly made out to be an arrogant, tempermental, self-willed and hypocritical man who continually displays unbelief and brazen defiance against God Almighty. He acts as though he were on equal ground with God and had every right and desire to argue against Him. As though God were a mere man and had no higher understanding or substancial authority. This is far from the Biblical Moses who was a humble and meek man who feared God and was obedient to His command - a righteous man, full of faith. It is not possible that the things that come out of this movie Moses' mouth would ever had exited the mouth of the real/Biblical Moses. Thankfully it is not in the nature of a Spirit filled, Bible Believing Christian to think or act as these characters do. If you know and love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, this movie will not (and can not) refresh the Spirit within you.
Better to watch Cecil B DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" with Charlton Heston - it may add plenty of 'fill in the detail' scenes which are not Biblically historical but it is doctrinally unoffending and overall a good and fun Bible movie. (if there are any serious doctrinal errors in it I do not recall them at present)
See also the following movies instead: - The Gospel of John - Visual Bible's Acts - Visual Bible's Matthew - "The Bible" - Joseph (The Bible Collection) - God's Outlaw
"do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world." (1John4:1) "the Holy Scriptures..are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped" (2Timothy3:16-17) "If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, he is proud knowing nothing" (1Timothy 6:3)
Poor acting and Poor Representation of Scripture Feb 18, 2007
The only good thing about this movie was the special effects involved in the parting of the sea of reeds. Indeed, this was well done.
The acting, direction, and the script was an absolute abomination from the reference point of any reasonable level of inspection.
Now, I know that artistic license is usually taken in the production of such a movie, but if one wants to make a movie that involves some made-up items added to the actual story, then he should at least make it interesting and meaningful.
You want to see a good movie? Then see 'Moses' starring Ben Kingsley.
Good bedspread. Feb 8, 2007
It is a former Korean. There is not translation never and English it studies, it was good. The graphic to end. It is fresh quite and there is a fun. The old thing and it is not compared. Quite it is impressed`` Power recommendation!

I have to laugh at the other reviewers saying this and that wasn't accurate. Now who's to say what is and what isn't, unless you were there! Highly unlikely I would say.
A different perspective of an age old question. We enjoyed the movie and for the money spent, they did a fine job.
When the movie was over and I asked my wife how she liked it, she said it was good, "but it's not an epic!" Did anyone ever think that there could be another Moses? Just as the burning bush told Moses in the '56 film," I am, who I am!" You KNEW who he was. To this day, when someone speaks of Moses, you picture one man. I don't have to tell you.........
Fantasic awesome movie! You HAVE to see this one! Dec 6, 2006
A complete departure from the standard THE TEN COMMANDMENTS with Charlton Heston, which was more of a romantic story, this deals with the more probable Moses and his retrival from the river; his life; and the complex politics of the freed people. I was impressed from its more realistic viewpoints, e.g., from the original The 10 Commandmants (with Charlton Heston), the people made a cow of gold; but in this movie it was made of stone lined with glass, not as a god, but a symbol of their conquest against the Malachites and their new freedoms. That sounds more probable. Also, God didn't strike them dead afterwards as punishment as depicted in the Heston version, but most likely, as depicted in this movie, there was a civil war in terms who is the leader of the clan. They learned warfare and simply used it against each other and the losing party was sentenced to death. VERY INTERESTING!! WOW!!!
Special effects: Actually, I thought the ORIGINAL 10 commandments had better special effects, however, I liked this movie's effects better--it was more conservative, yet extremely impressive at the same time, which made it more realistic.
This movie is nearly 3 hours long--I was enthralled the WHOLE TIME, not one single yawn, not one single instant was I bored. It took me into the movie and kept me in there. I was irritated when I had to put the movie on PAUSE because I had to go to the bathroom--I wanted to keep on watching it!! YOU KNOW THIS IS RARE AMONG MOVIES. I could not believe the time went by so quick despite being a 3 hours movie. It was GREAT! And sooo incredibly rare that a modern movie can be this great.
Whether or not you believe in the story of Moses for it may be fact or fiction is rather immaterial. The point is, THE WAY IT IS PRESENTED IN THE MOVIE IT SEEMS MORE LIKELY it happened along these lines rather than in another way. It kept in touch with the realities of the politics and pressures that will manifest in any group, at any century. In the older version of the 10 commandments it presents itself as total fiction with Moses the romantic finding God, becoming Moses the saint or whatever. This movie does not. It's more of a probable slant. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
Acting: SUPERB!!! REALLY SUPERB!! And it was very nice to see Omar Sharif in there, and he did do a very good job. The whole move was awesome.
