This Ridley Scott directed film got something right in this super natural biblical story. His character
development and pacing of the film gives us a chance to take in the history of the time along with all
of its politics and how they affected daily life. The few in the privileged class lived well. The rest of the
humanity of the time lived in bondage or in small remote villages living close to the land. This is all there
in this movie. We get a snapshot of this and how a hero emerges to shift this dynamic. I was hooked
by every scene. It is very well done and you just may find it enjoyable as well.
