DeMille's direction of the action is superb and the various roles are played with feeling by a large and competent cast, headed by Charlton Heston.

There is no other picture like it. There will be none. If it could be summed up in a word, the word would be sublime. And the man responsible for that, when all is said and done is Cecil B. DeMille.

With a running time of nearly four hours, Cecil B. De Mille's last feature and most extravagant blockbuster is full of the absurdities and vulgarities one expects, but it isn't boring for a minute.

DeMille's film fairly bursts with color and hugeness, even when the characters sit around on one set and talk at one another -- which happens a lot.

DeMille remains conventional with the motion picture as an art form. The eyes of the onlooker are filled with spectacle. Emotional tug is sometimes lacking.

Heston may as well be screaming about Soylent Green, but damn if he doesn't make for one hell of an inspiring leader.

Still a grand biblical epic that's just a notch below "Ben-Hur" in terms of its performances, narrative drama, and special effects.

...a benchmark of comparison for all super spectaculars, and in its restored, high-definition Blu-ray presentation, it's more spectacular than ever.

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing in DeMille's ponderous, yet still colossal, Biblical soap opera.

Is there anyone who can picture Moses without thinking of Heston dramatically lifting his staff to part the Red Sea?
