Exceptional Rendering of Traditional Bible Story Feb 18, 2007
This entire series of Bible stories by this Italian production group is simply splendid. These are relatively low cost films but they are very skillfully produced to maximize the quality of the story being told. Of course we Christians and Jews will sit around and pontificate about every little error or short cut the movie script incurs, never the less, it is ultimately left to the actors and directors and their considerable skill to pull off what I consider to be, for the most part, some of the most successfully done Bible story dramatizations that have ever been produced on film, with or without a big budget. My favorite is the story of Abram, the movie Joseph coming in a close second, and this movie, Moses, coming in a close third or even equalling Joseph. Bravo bravo - Please make more! My five stars applies to this complete series of movies - Obviously some are done a little better than others, but the effort is exemplary.
MOSES (THE BIBLE COLLECTION) Jan 18, 2007
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORATE MOVIES THUS FAR. BEN KINGSLEY DOES A GREAT JOB OF PIN-POINTING THE BIBLE'S DESCRIPTION OF THE CHARACTER OF MOSES. THIS IS AN INSPIRING MOVIE THAT WILL BE TREASURED IN MY HOME.
Wonderful story of faith Jul 6, 2006
This is one of the best adaptations of Moses. Ben Kingsley's portrayal is emotive and accurate. The whole cast bring forth a very powerful performance which truly encompasses the journey of trusting God and allowing him to guide you. A truly beautiful feature.
Moses with a speech impediment Mar 27, 2006
More accurate than the Prince of Egypt but still falsely presenting Pharaoh as Ramses... doesn't anyone realize the Pharaoh obviously wasn't the firstborn of his father since he wasn't killed in the plague?! Also, Moses was a general of Pharaoh's army... not a blundering clutz with a speech impediment (stuttering) as they present him here. This movie exalts Aaron as the one constantly making Moses go on. We know Moses was reluctant at times, but on the mount, Moses begged God to kill him along with the rest of the nation rather than go on without them and Aaron is not there telling him to do it. Considering these limitations, they did the best they could from there and had most of the other details somewhat in line with scripture but I've seen better. This company has some other stories that are excellent but I find this one the fartherst from being an accurate protrayal.
Captivating Movie Mar 23, 2006
Moses is among the best film that I have seen from the Bible collection. Among the others I have seen are Joseph, David, Abraham, Jacob and Samson and Delilah. Ben Kingsley plays Moses, a feat he performs with remarkable success. He plays the ordinary man who answers God's call to carry out enormous responsibilities. Watching this film is a spiritual journey illustrating God's love for his people. Best of all, the story in the film is very close to that in the Bible (unlike the more spectacular "Ten Commandments" by Cecil DeMille).
This is a compelling movie that illustrates vividly the challenges that Moses and a nation of people who followed him to the Promised Land had to endure. Moses, who stutters and occasionally blunders, initially feels inadequate and unequal to the enormity of his task and needed assistance from his brother Aaron. However, as the film develops, Moses grows not only in faith but also to be a confident leader who speaks with absolute authority as the Voice of God.
The production is excellent. The stage settings, costumes and portrayal of the realities of day-to-day living in those times are very impressive. The Biblical story of Exodus comes to life as one gets some appreciation of the challenges that Moses had leading the mass of people under constant threat of attack, hunger and without a home and who had doubts about the authenticity of the relationship between Moses and God. There are many unforgettable moments in the movie such as the parting of the Red Sea and when Moses reaches the gates of the Promised Land, but cannot get there. However, the righteous and God fearing Moses accepts God's will.
My only minor criticism is that although it is estimated that up to two and half-million Israelites left Egypt during the time of the Exodus, one sees the largest group of people in the film numbering just over 70, due to budget constraints. However, this does little to dilute this great movie which is well worth watching.
