I have read the book in the original. I am not sure the movies can really capture it.
I have heard the special effects are outstanding, particularly the plague of locusts. This one may find me at the theater, for the first time since the first Daniel Craig Bond flick (not counting seeing half the Avengers movie).
Yep, going to be one of the one or two movies I see a year in the theater!
It looks like it might be a good action flick, but they'll ruin the actual story somehow. As a RULE, Hollywood perverts and/or waters-down any Biblical story.
So, OK, a wonderful action flick, full of special effects, telling a story about the Egyptians enslaving the Jews.
Just the thing to get our minds off the Tribulations in the Middle East.
At least there are no Muslims in it.
Thanks, Chas- best laugh of the morning.
Wow ... for now, may be actually "spectacular!" ... maybe! Thanks for the heads up.
Nothing will ever get me in a theater again.
Our living room is soooo much better.
