* ArcWords: "All I ever wanted."



** Rameses' first reaction to his little brother killing a man in front of multiple witnesses is to declare him innocent. When Moses returns after years of being gone, he is ready to give his brother a high position and wipe away the crime.

* DeconstructedTrope: The film deconstructed RedOniBlueOni through Moses and Rameses, respectively, by showing the qualities associated with them evolving in positive and negative ways as they mature.



** At the beginning, Moses and Rameses have caused chaos during their chariot race.
-->'''Rameses:''' You don't think we'll get in trouble for this, do you?\\
'''Moses:''' [[TemptingFate No, not a chance]].\\
[''GilliganCut Cue Moses and Rameses being scolded for the chaos the race caused.'']\\
'''Seti''': ''Why'' do the gods torment me with such reckless, destructive, ''blasphemous'' sons!?
** Later at when they're late for the banquet
-->'''Rameses''': I'm done for! Father will kill me!\\
'''Moses''': Don't worry. Nobody will even notice us coming in!\\
(They walk in; ''the entire crowd'' sees them and cheers loudly)\\
'''Rameses''': "Nobody will even notice..."\\
'''Moses''': Heh-heh-heh...

* AdaptationExpansion: In the Book of Exodus, everything from Moses' birth to his exile and marriage is covered in a single chapter, which in a printed book would take up less than two pages. These two pages are expanded into the entire first half of the movie.

** Moses deliberately murdered the Egyptian guard whipping the slave and even went so far as to try and hide the body. Here, the guard's death was a complete accident.

** When Moses is fleeing Egypt after killing the Egyptian who was torturing a slave, Rameses sympathetically and lovingly tries to stop him. Moses says only "Goodbye, Brother" before running away. Rameses then yells out "Moses! Moses!!" in pleading despair. At the end of the movie, when Rameses [[spoiler:crashes onto the shore from the Red Sea closing in]], he once again screams out "Moses! Moses!!", but this time [[spoiler:it is out of fury at having lost not only his son, but his slaves and effectively his entire kingdom, all by Moses's hand]]. Once again, Moses only states "Goodbye, Brother."

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: The angel of death looks like it came through a portal from outside of existance and is basically a giant glowing white cloud that pulls the breath of life from the first born children. No wings, no halo, no sword dripping with the blood of Egyptians.

* RealityHasNoSubtitles: Many of the songs contain individual lines or entire choruses in Hebrew, sung along with the predominantly English lyrics. No translations are offered [[note]]except in the booklet for the soundtrack CD[[/note]], but the tone and context of the songs at least hint at their meanings.

** Rameses says that "there will be a great cry in the land of Egypt", threatening to kill off the entire Hebrew population. The "great cry" that comes about is not the one he expected.

* DontSaySuchStupidThings: Moses refuses to lead the Israelites out of slavery because they would never trust or follow him, but God loses His temper and tells him to go anyways.

* ShownTheirWork: The silhouette of a whale shark is seen behind the watery walls of the Red Sea passage, which does connect to the habitat range of the species. Furthermore, Ramses specifically mentions "white limestone." One guess as to what color the buildings would be in those days (hint: it isn't yellow).

* AdaptationDyeJob: In 1994 it was discovered that Rameses the Great was red-haired. Film/TheTenCommandments can get away with portraying Rameses with black hair because that movie predated the discovery. This movie was made in 1998 and thus has no excuse besides CriticalResearchFailure.
