    Prince Of Egypt is epic storytelling on the grandest scale. Big imagery, big themes, big emotions - all met head-on and accomplished triumphantly within a film that is in essence a live action movie - more precisely a Steven Spielberg live action movie - writ cartoon.

    One of the best-looking animated films ever made.

This is definitely the greatest Dreamworks movie ever. The animation in this movie has not been matched by any 2D animated movie since. The story is one you know from the Charlton Heston movie but told in a very distinct way. The music in this movie is absolutely powerful. The open sequence in this movie is one of the most powerful and emotional openings of any animated feature ever. Even if you are not religious or spiritual you will defiantly enjoy this film at least for beauty and emotion. Full Review »
