Just typical violence

What a shame. They took a story God thought so important that he had it recorded for us and made a movie that is just another reason to show violence. They completely missed the mark. Both my wife and I also thought they portrayed God as almost satanic. This is not a movie that your children will benefit from. There is no spirituality or respect for our creator. Watch "The Ten Comandments" 1956 version. You will all be better for it.
