Storyline

When an oracle prophesizes that a child will become Prince of Egypt, a time of danger approaches the kingdom. The Egyptian Pharaoh orders the massacre of all newborn males. But one child, Moses-the son of a Hebrew slave-escapes certain death when he is set adrift on the Nile. As years pass, he is raised in a royal Egyptian household and, with no memory of his family, rises to the stature of prince. Upon discovery of his true heritage, and inspired by a fiery message from God, Moses embarks upon a noble and desperate fight to reclaim his destiny as the leader and liberator of the Hebrew people.

Why?
9 October 2016 | by xlarsSee all my reviews

I can see that making a film of magnitude begs the use of some artistic license. However, when one is using artistic licence, why not stick to the minor things. Fillers for instance.

And why, when telling a story, won't one use the important things. If you want to cut certain areas, don't cut the vitals.

There were 3,5 million Jews leaving Egypt, plus their animals. The train of movement would be huge. This is a great place to use special effects.

I mean the special effects were good when it came to the crossing of the sea of Aqaba, but why not portray the immense amounts of people?

And why in the world try to say that Moshe didn't know where they were going? G-d explicitly told him where to take the people; back to Midian, to Chorev. They came there after three months, not years.

And G-d didn't let them walk the desert for to teach them anything, but to punish the original generation leaving Egypt, because they disobeyed him (Only Jehoshua and Kalev didn't). Even Moshe disobeyed G-d and that is why he at the end didn't get to cross into the promised land.
