  1. [It] is perilously close to Hollywood hokum, but manages to rise above it by featuring the ever-interesting Dougray Scott in the lead role of Moses.
  2. Holds its own against the 1956 classic.
  3. Despite such bloody activity, it's a long trudge through the desert to the Promised Land.
  4. 50
