So if you know anything about major world monotheistic religion, then you already know what this movie is about. The story of Moses, and how he brought the Hebrew people out of bondage is retold in a grand way. There is some controversy over the portrayal of Egyptians in the film, as well as some of the content. Somehow, this movie escapes the religious overtones that you expect, and feels quite secular. But if you are in the mood for a grand epic movie, then this film is made to be just that.
