Catholic Movie Reviews - Exodus: Gods and Kings

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” is a new blockbuster movie based on the story of Moses. In this article, Sr. Helena Burns from Life Teen looks at the film from a Catholic perspective, addressing both the quality of the film, as well as some of the more theological points that the movie raises.

"Although the Bible is an “ancient” text about ancient times and peoples, human nature doesn’t change, and so “Exodus” has a contemporary feel. I could totally relate to Moses as he struggled to relate to God. I loved seeing this incredible, incredible man of God questioning, fighting with and arguing with God."

For an alternate review from Crisis Magazine, which mentions some of the plot inconsistancies that would be good to know about if you are planning to watch the film, click here.
