Antagony & Ecstasy

It turns much too serious for its own good, though it otherwise is an entirely satisfying animated adventure story.

Well-told story that's careful not to offend.

When Moshe encounters the burning bush and confronts a God who calls Himself I Am That I Am...it is almost as if the scene compels the audience to remove their shoes for holy ground is underfoot

The movie's proudest accomplishment is that it revises our version of Moses toward something more immediate and believable, more humanly knowable.

This is sensational cinema: crowds swarming among pyramids in eye-popping 3-D, camerawork that's distinctly Spielbergian in its fluidity.

The angular animation and muted colour palette gives the film a look more redolent of classic European cartoons than their homelier American counterparts.

The blend of animation techniques somehow demonstrates mastery modestly, while the special effects are nothing short of magnificent.

Hyperactive and visually busy without being much fun.

As epic, emotionally satisfying spectacle, it's way up there with the very best in mainstream animation.

Film Threat

Much of the animation is stunning and all of the vocal performances are good to great. It's just much of the passion seems to be in not stepping on anyone's beliefs or interpretations, instead of in telling the story in the most compelling way possible.

The handsomely animated Prince of Egypt is an amalgam of Hollywood biblical epic, Broadway supermusical and nice Sunday school lesson.

It could've worked with well-thought out characters, but limps along with the mostly flat and unmemorable ones that populate the picture.

Audiences may truly be shocked at how far Katzenberg is willing to go to maintain the story's integrity.

Don't expect dancing camels and singing sphinxes.

It is a more than decent adaptation of the classic tale, one that, despite what I have said in the previous paragraph, never talks down to its audience.

Palo Alto Weekly

Except for the rousing opening scenes, children may find the film too slow and humorless for cartoon fare. Most adults would prefer a more sophisticated exploration of spiritual themes.

Though I don't recommend this film for very small children, it could be a great learning tool for teens, church youth groups, or aspiring animators. But you may be required to answer some tough questions. Better go bone up on your Old Testament.

The Prince of Egypt is a beautifully animated story with a superb cast; it just isn't the Exodus story.
