The Prince of Egypt Reviews

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

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

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

An inspiring translation of biblical grandeur, turning the story of one of history's greatest heroes into an entertaining, visually dazzling cartoon.

The 400-member-strong Prince of Egypt team (led by directors Brenda Chapman, Steve Hickner and Simon Wells and ramrodded by executive producer Jeffrey Katzenberg) have created a succession of visual wonders.

Sometimes out-DeMilles DeMille's 1956 live-action epic, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS!

The Prince of Egypt is middlebrow kitsch, but kitsch straining for respectability and therefore without the energy that can make kitsch entertaining.

If The Prince of Egypt falls short in its song and story, it succeeds gloriously in its epic grandeur and visual splendor.

The drawn and computer-animated imagery is top notch and seamlessly integrated, but the central characters' tawny complexions and the often chiaroscuro lighting sometimes obscure all but the whites of their eyes and their pearl-perfect teeth.

The Prince of Egypt goes beyond fanciful and magical. It is the first spiritual animated film ever, as deep and resonant as it is soaringly inventive!

Rather than Jerry Falwell, I'd have had the production vetted by Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks.

I wish DreamWorks had been more truly daring instead of merely competitive and worked a little longer at evolving a drawing style that departed more radically from the Disney house style than this film does.

There's a nagging disharmony between the grandeur of the tale and the lazily anachronistic dialogue, which spoon-feeds the audience.
