Abstract :

This study describes about the representation of Perennial American Hero character in Exodus: Gods and Kings. This research purpose is to examine whether the “heroic” American characteristics still exist or not because the film theme is religious.  The study uses a qualitative method in analyzing the issue by implementing Mackey-Kallis’s Perennial Journey structure and Halldorson’s American Hero expanding theory. In organizing the analysis, the study analyzes the journey first by applying Mackey-Kallis’s Perennial Journey; Furthermore, the writers continue analyze on the main character by implementing Halldorson’s American Hero. The similar characteristics are supposedly used to reveal the American Hero identity in Exodus: Gods and Kings. Besides applying narrative aspects the study also applies non-narrative aspects such as shot, angle, frame, action and lighting. These non-narrative aspects are purposely applied to enhance the research in finding American Hero’s characteristics on the main character. These two expanding theories help this study to reveal the American Hero archetype on the main character.
