Ridley Scott’s bloated 150 minute epic about Moses (Christian Bale) rising up against Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) is mediocre at best. There are many issues in the film: Bale, who is a great actor, seemed miscast as Moses; John Turturro, who played Seti, got laughs at the screening I attended when he first spoke with his Brooklyn accent; Sigourney Weaver, as Tuya, was reduced to a background prop in many scenes. But the biggest issue is that the film is too long and too boring. It just falls flat. There are some amazing special effects and impressive production design, but it isn’t enough to make this an enjoyable movie going experience.
