Noah vs. Exodus: Gods and Kings



Well here, of course, is an interesting one. I'm surprised there are no comments. Noah, I thought, worked well as a fantasy film...and if I'd been more able to divorce it from the source material and the stories I've been fed throughout my lifetime, I would have enjoyed it more. Exodus, of course, also took liberties. I don't understand why the movies feel the need to do that; the tales of Moses and Noah are epic enough without them. In the end, these are movies I liked, but couldn't love because of that niggling feeling in the back of my brain. Exodus felt less egregious in its departures.
