Critic Reviews for Exodus
Watchable mainly for the sheer skill and drive of Preminger's direction, although at 220 minutes even that long outstays its welcome.
In the end, one should take from this picture a shaken feeling of having been through a lot of harsh and ennobling experiences.
Intelligence applied exactly where it is most rare: in the lavish, star-studded epic.
Appallingly boring. That's a subjective word, but I can't think of a better one.
Audience Reviews for Exodus
A wonderful epic that boasts one of the most beautiful scores in the History of Cinema, a gorgeous cinematography that makes the best use of its locations, fantastic performances (Sal Mineo is the highlight) and an incredibly well-written script that still feels relevant today in its message in favor of peace.
Starts well with fine performances and a clear and direct plot but loses momentum in second half and becomes somewhat scattered. Ralph Richardson is very good which is customary but when he exits the picture his absence leaves a hole which is never really filled.
this four hour epic chronicles the lives of jews in palestine in the aftermath of WW2. this is a great film with some of the most philosophical and thought provoking diologue one could hope to find in the movies. complete with hunger strikes, political bombings, jail breaks and beautiful symbolism of the relationship of humanity, the word epic is no stretch for this wonderful movie.
