  8. Ridley Scott delivers groundbreaking take on 'Exodus'Read the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Dec 18 | Chico Enterprise-Record

It's a radical departure from Cecil B. DeMille's Hollywood standard-bearer "The Ten Commandments," and even before the release of their costly new retelling of the Old Testament story, Scott, Bale and Australian actor Joel Edgerton, who stars as the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses, were bracing for a wallop of a reaction.

    Ridley Scott's “Exodus: Gods and Kings” suffers from the same problem as Scott's overrated, Oscar-winning “Gladiator”: It's too familiar. While “Gladiator” came across as “Spartacus” lite, “Exodus” is essentially a rehash of Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 epic “The Ten Commandments” .
