    Straightforward and earnest in its storytelling, it is weakened by unsubtle acting and an emotional temperature at times so overwrought as to border on spoken opera.
  2. 10
    It's a bore, bore, bore.

    This new version violates the primary commandment of epic filmmaking, biblical or otherwise: Thou shalt not bore.

    The acting generally ranges from over the top to flat-out bad.

    Portrayed by actor Dougray Scott, Moses is so lacking in leader-like charisma and confidence that he seems ready to break into tears at every sand dune.
