Picks and Pans Review: Moses
TNT (Sun., April 7, 8 p.m. ET)
In Ben Kingsley's capable hands, the biblical leader becomes very querulous, sad, unsure of everything but his faith. Similarly, Frank Langella's Mernefta, son of Ramses, doesn't slink about with the usual posturing glamor of movie pharaohs. He's merely a paper tiger, one of the Old Testament's big losers. Anyone more interested in Cecil B. De Mille effects than good acting will be disappointed in this two-part movie. The parting of the Red Sea looks like an elaborate display of lawn sprinklers.
