The Ten Commandments (2007)



Critic Consensus: The Ten Commandments proves that not even one of humanity's most enduring tales is strong enough to overcome a biblical plague of cheap-looking animation.

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (10)

This is the inaugural film in a franchise of 12 feature films based on Bible stories, using a crude form of three-dimensional computer animation. One can only hope that the future entries in the series are better executed than this first one.

It's like watching Max Headroom lead his people out of Egypt.

Ponderous but somewhat moving.

Thou shalt not cast Christian Slater as Moses, no matter how much the Hollywood party boy wants to fulfill some form of karmic community service.

While the story is solid, the computer-generated animation, which lacks any flow and grace, is another matter. Actually, it's kind of creepy

Shamelessly rips off interpretive conceits and even specific dramatic beats from The Prince of Egypt.

Audience Reviews for The Ten Commandments


The story is obvious so let's look to other concerns about this movie: The voice over is great concerning Moses, but some of the other's are unconvincing. The animation is a little sketchy as sometimes it seems as if people are moving way to fast and sometimes do not move as clean cut as some animation films I have seen. This is 2008 and that is unexcuseable for any film. However, the story was told well and down to the tee-in which that made it slightly enjoyable. I think it could of been more children related, as it is animated, however my little nephew that I sit down to watch it with was hardly engaged. The dialogue at time seemed a bit stale. Dont let this review stop you from watching this one though. It's not by all means a BAD movie, but for an animation film in todays age, it's lacking.
