The movie was made in the 70's and as such it's made with the techniques of the decade.

The sound effects in the shot transitions are truly awful, lucky for us they only last for the first 10 minutes or so.

Now, on to the highlights..

This is by no means a major production but gets it right when depicting parts of the story that leave much to the imagination in the Bible.

One great example is the part when Moses goes to the mountain to receive the Ten Commandments, upon his return he finds the children of Israel sinning greatly by having made a golden calf.

The Bible only mentions Moses' reaction and his questioning Aaron, but says almost nothing about all that went on in the camp while he was gone. The film does such a great job in building around the story.

We are walked through the thought process of Aaron. He kind of knew what was going on, but never expected the Israelites to completely turn into pagan worship.

He finally realizes the sin and tries to stop it, it is then when Moses shows up, and the story continues..
