      Fourscio J Now this is a movie! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Lindsey F Amazing and awe-inspiring dramatization of the life of Moses. Highly recommend! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Courtney B Why is Moses so angry and violent? Not 5 minutes goes by without Moses smacking someone in this show. He's not like that in the Bible, where his patience makes him the legend he is. If this show has you yelling at the TV due it's wrongness about characters and events it's because it is based on the Quran, not the Torah or Old Testament. Had I known I wouldn't have wasted my time watching this. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Bubbe F Biblical history is so hard to put into film. This is hard to watch….it’s pretty cringeworthy. You just cannot recreate miracles on film…and to make it worse the acting is sub par. Sorry. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review Audience Member It's not a reseal storyyyy Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Asma S It’s not the real story, there are a lot of myths.

      Ben Travers indieWire I cannot imagine any of the expert commentary stirring up much more than polite disagreement. What’s most upsetting is how easily the Netflix template gets mapped onto a two-thousand-year-old story, including a pre-credits teaser reel. Rated: C Mar 27, 2024 Full Review Melissa Camacho Common Sense Media The presentation of these conversations throughout the series is fluid and well-organized, so much so that it sometimes feels as if the experts are in agreement about how the story should be interpreted. Apr 10, 2024 Full Review Rohan Naahar The Indian Express As has become the norm for shows like this, the production is noticeably spartan — the sets look plastic, there’s a limit to the scope, and despite the inherent ambition of adapting such an expansive text, the constraints can always be seen and felt. Mar 31, 2024 Full Review Jonathon Wilson Ready Steady Cut The docuseries makes a point of reconstructing Moses’s life with balanced input from all three Abrahamic religions – Christianity, Judaism, and Islam – and ends up telling the blandest and most anodyne version of an already well-known story. Rated: 2/5 Mar 30, 2024 Full Review Alan French Sunshine State Cineplex In Netflix’s version, Moses’ tale of redemption and Exodus combines the discourses of the three major religions that celebrate the man of faith. Rated: 6/10 Mar 29, 2024 Full Review Collin Garbarino WORLD Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, all recognize Moses as a prophet, but they don’t interpret Moses’ importance the same way ... Netflix glosses over significant differences of opinion, offering a syncretic perspective on the lawgiver. Rated: 1/4 Mar 29, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
