One of the most fabled stories of the Old Testament gets a new interpretation in this CGI-animated feature. When the Pharaoh of Egypt sentences Hebrew children to their death, the mother of baby Moses floats the child down the River Nile in a basket, hoping he will be found by people who give him a chance at a better life. The baby is found by the Pharaoh's daughter, and is raised as an Egyptian prince. However, when the true heritage of Moses (voice of Christian Slater) is discovered, he is

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
A well-intentioned misfire featuring 3-D CGI animation that recalls lesser vidgames of the mid-1990s.
A big-name voice cast doesn't cover for a script that may hit the Biblical high points but somehow misses the dramatic heart of the story.
Though it boasts a noteworthy cast, the film suffers from clunky computer animation that appears to be hinged on technology at least several years behind the curve.
Adults will squirm at the dialogue and wonder how actors of such fine calibre manage to squander some of their star credentials
Here's an unusual but OK take on the story of Moses, the Exodus and, of course, "The Ten Commandments."
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.
As a straightforward introducition to the biblical story, it is arguably better than some of the splashier or more sensational movies out there.
The characters' skin looks like hard plastic, so it's as if a bunch of GI Joes are trying to escape the plague of locusts, and all of the human characters appear to be lit from within, like nightlights.
Shamelessly rips off interpretive conceits and even specific dramatic beats from The Prince of Egypt.
Unprofessional...this new Commandments is the work of the devil himself.
This new version of the story of Moses is a huge step backward for theatrical CG animation, or any animation for that matter.
A beyond-unimpressive computer-animated retelling of the story of Moses, The Ten Commandments seems to have been made using public-domain software, and targeted squarely at kids impressed by any brightly colored moving objects.
