Editorial Reviews

The Ten Commandments showcases Moses, the reluctant prophet, who was the only man in Biblical history to see the face of God and call him "friend." This special animated version is filled with high adventure, miraculous events and a gentle sense of humor. Condemned to die by the 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 the 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 people to the Promised Land.

3.0 out of 5 stars Compare with "The Prince of Egypt" January 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Depending on what you're looking for, you might prefer this film or "The Prince of Egypt."

"The Ten Commandments" follows the biblical story of Moses and the Exodus more closely, but it isn't nearly as entertaining or as well written as "The Prince of Egypt," and the animation in "The Ten Commandments" is a little odd, reminiscent of a video game. "The Prince of Egypt" ends after the parting of the Red Sea, but "The Ten Commandments" continues through the giving of the Ten Commandments to the end of Exodus, including the introduction of Joshua and the death of Moses.

I teach religion at a Catholic girls' prep school, and in my ninth-grade World Religions class, I use short excerpts from "The Ten Commandments" to illustrate Moses's encounter with God via the burning bush and the giving of the Ten Commandments. In my eleventh-grade Scripture course, I show large chunks of "The Prince of Egypt," which many of my students adore and have watched repeatedly, and one of our exercises is comparing the film with the biblical text to note the differences and to consider what we think of the artistic liberties that were taken in the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Movie for Family February 6, 2008
By S. Lai
Format:DVD
This is an excellent re-telling of the Bible's Exodus. Vivid animation, color and captivating storyline that kids will just love it. The voice cast is strong and the music is excellent.

The story follows the Bible closely with scary scene tastefully done up. A good resource to introduce bible stories to kids, sunday school, etc. A MUST for any Church Sunday School Library.

Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments with Elliot Gould is an excellent claymation movie for the whole family. the characterizations, the acting, the cinematography is well done and first rate. relive the story of moshe ha navee (the prophet)and the great miracles that Yahweh (blessed be his name forever)did through his prophet. i thoroughly enjoyed this film. we need more movies like this in hollywood. every jewish person and christian should support this film and what better way than to buy the film. what is important about this film is that bible movies can make a difference not only in people's lives but can also tell hollywood there is an alternative to their disgusting graphic movies that have very litle ie no moral values what so ever. i know people will criticize this film and give very few stars for a rating. iam not a critic of any movie that shows decency, moral values, and is based on the bible even though there is fiction in the film. Val Kilmer, Elliot Gould, and the rest of the cast did a splendid performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Children's Entertainment and Bible History May 3, 2009
Format:DVD
I have a 4-year old son who has access to decent library of animated material at home and he often requests this movie. We have owned it for several months. As a parent, I like that it sticks pretty closely to the source material of the Bible itself and lacks low brow humor and use of poor language--something many "children's movies" actually include a lot of these days. The story follows Moses's life from his trip down the river in the basket to his death just as the people finally enter the Promised Land. Please note, this movie is geared toward children, but it should be known that it does not avoid issues like Pharoah's issuing of the command to kill Israel's firstborn children, the Angel of Death's arrival to do the same to Egypt's children, attempted murder, accidental homicide, and mass drowning, among other things. If your children are being exposed to these stories already, then it brings the whole thing alive and together well. If you aren't sure your child is ready for these themes, maybe you need to preview it first.

There are some interesting reviews floating around for this movie. More than a few reviews I have read online seem to have mentioned that the computer animation was sub-par. I believe this is due to some weaker character designs being more prominent towards the beginning of the movie; some of the childrens' faces are really not the strongest. They aren't prominant figures, and the bulk of the character designs are good or great for this genre. Which seems to mean exaggerated features and rubbery people--this is the standard even for a Pixar movie. That stated, the overwhelming majority is top-notch, the faces are actually quite expressive and help carry the story along in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent retelling of the biblical story of Moses April 1, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have watched several live-action movies on Moses (e.g. Charlton Heston, and the more recent version by Dougray Scott), along with the animated Prince of Egypt; I liked this one the most.

Even though the CG animation could still be improved; the best thing going for this animated film is that it sticks very closely to the biblical account. Some of the scenes/ features I liked the most:

1) The 10 Plagues: it shows all of the plagues, and highlights the contest between Pharaoh claiming to be a god and Jehovah God, speaking through Moses his prophet. The script emphasizes the confrontation between the true God versus the gods of Egypt. All the plagues were depicted (Nile into blood, frogs, lice, locusts, boils, darkness, and killing of firstborn). This depiction was superior to that of both "Ten Commandments" movies (both 1961 and 2003).

2) The Parting of the Red Sea: this animation closely follows the Charlton Heston (10 Commandments) scene of the Parting of the Red Sea; however it ends with Moses shouting praise to God (the new song in Exod 15)

3) The actors did a commendable job in the voice-overs: (Christian Slater as Moses, Alfred Molina as the Pharaoh Ramses)

Some good scenes:

1) The Burning Bush -- it is very complete and follows the Exodus 3 text closely. The LORD tells Moses, " I Am That I Am" and then tells him to take the sandals off his feet; the LORD also tells Moses to put his staff into the ground (and it becomes a snake), and to put his hand in his cloak (and it becomes leprous). The only weakness in this depiction is that Moses does not kneel down or fall prostrate before the LORD; it would have been better if the movie depicted Moses showing more awe toward the LORD.
