The defiant leader Moses rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
Let me tell you something about about Hebrews. They are a conniving, combative people. Do you know what 'Israelite' means in their own language? 'He who fights with God.'
Moses: 'He who wrestles with God.' There is a difference.
Although the movie was criticized for white-washing, Ancient Egyptians were not ethnically similar to modern Sub-Saharan Africans. Their genetic make-up was more similar to Semitic, Turkish, and European populations. Specifically Ramses II was a white red-head, as were half of his close family. (see Ramses II's mummy, his family's mummies, which still exist, and the latest DNA studies on Ancient Egyptian demographics).
