  • Summary: Condemned to die by Pharaoh while just a baby, Hebrew Moses is set adrift on the River Nile by his mother and his sister. Rescued by the daughter of Pharaoh, he grows up thinking he's an Egyptian prince. Eventually exiled from Egypt when he is exposed as a Jew, he is touched by God, and told that he will lead his enslaved Chosen People to the Promised Land. With the hand of God firmly on his shoulder, and with faith as his only weapon, Moses performs miracles, casts down plagues, evades a pursuing Egyptian army, parts the Red Sea and, after forty years of leading the Hebrew Chosen Ones to the Promised Land, is embraced by God and led to a better place.

    For those who recall those old Classics Illustrated comics of the 1940s and ’50s--and even for those who don’t--there’s an endearing, earnest quality to The Ten Commandments that transcends its star-studded cast and computer-generated animation.

    A well-intentioned misfire featuring 3-D CGI animation that recalls lesser vidgames of the mid-1990s.

    Bad animation and casting make Moses movie a zero, not a Ten.

    There’s something earnest and forthright about the movie, despite its misguided execution.

    The panoramic backgrounds have a silky beauty, but the characters are cheaply rendered with doll faces, enlarged musculature, tiny joints, and clunky movement. It's like watching Max Headroom lead his people out of Egypt.

    It fails on every conceivable level.

    just watched some clips of it. some of them aren't memorable. so, i'm just gonna say: its not terrible, but not that good. the animation was kind of cheesy and the plot was screwed, but the acting wasn't so bad and the visuals were nice.
