I grew up on this epic and so it framed my religious understandings.

An alltime classic. The greatest religious movie ever. Superb acting. Incredible special effects for its time. Still holds up today. You can see this movie over and over again, and not get bored. Directed by legendary director Cecil B. Demille.

Some of the screenplay is definitely Americanized. However, excellent movie.

REALLY GOOD Classic Movie.

Cecil B. DeMille era conhecido pela extravagância e carisma de seus filmes, Cleópatra (1934) foi seu primeiro filme a ser nomeado para o Oscar de Melhor Filme, o auge de sua carreira começou com Sansão e Dalila (1949), seu terceiro épico bíblico que teve a maior bilheteria de 1950. Sua primeira indicação ao Oscar de melhor diretor foi com The Greatest Show on Earth (1952), que ganhou o Oscar de Melhor Filme. Seu último e mais famoso filme, The Ten Commandments (1956), produzido juntamente com Henry Wilcoxon, é atualmente o sexto filme de maior bilheteria de todos os tempos ajustados pela inflação. A direção de DeMille soube unir um romance sobre um texto bíblico sobe uma mega produção, isso foi a isca para trazer o pais inteiro para os cinemas. Charlton Heston esta no papel principal de Moisés, Yul Brynner como Ramsés , Anne Baxter como Nefretiri , Edward G. Robinson como Datã , Yvonne De Carlo como Sephora , Debra Paget como Lilia, e John Derek como Joshua. The Ten Commandments é uma combinação absurda de detalhes meticulosos com criatividade esplêndida que nem sempre soma, as vezes cansa. Feito pra impressionar peca pelo exagero.

Probably the best Bible movie ever made. It's a very exhilarating experience. Everything is just so grand: the music, the sets, the whole scope of the story, and even the acting. Charlton Heston as Moses is truly one of the greatest heroes of all time. Such an epic and beautiful film, this is one everyone must see. Even if you're not religious there's so much in store with this film. A masterpiece.

Cecil B. DeMAILLES Great epic

A testament of cinematic marvel, a magnificent achievement in the history of world cinema. Cecil B DeMille's magnum opus is star studded and the visual penache the film has created cannot even be met by most of the films that come out from Hollywood these days. The film evely balances out CGI, cinematography and real people cast as masses rather than the crappy green screen effects of these days. Also bolstered by stunning performances from Yul Brynner in particular and also Charlton Helton as Moses adds to the viewing pleasure. This film succeeds because it is not simply made for the ardent faith-based audience. Any lover of cinema can love this for the marvel it is.

One of the Best movies of all time, if not the BEST! A SUPER Cast that will, almost, never be equal

The Ten Commandments (1956) ????
Classic DeMille epic follows Moses' (Heston) life from birth until abandonment, slavery, and finally delivering his people out of Egypt. Storytelling at its best, with Oscar-winning special effects, particularly for the parting of the Red Sea and breathtaking writing of the holy tablets sequence. The all-time great Biblical epic, surely not to be missed.

La última película de Cecil B. DeMille cierra su carrera como director con una gran explosión. Este re-make de su propia película es tan inmenso como solo Hollywood lo puede lograr. Charloton Heston interpreta a Moisés a la perfección (de hecho, obtuvo su papel por su gran parecido con la estatua de Miguel Ángel) y Yul Brynner junto a Edward G. Robinson se roban el show interpretando a los malvados faraón Ramsés y Dathan, respectivamente. Grandes locaciones, grandes efectos (que aún impactan), grandes actuaciones y grandes diálogos hacen de "Los Diez mandamientos" uno de los eventos más grandes en la historia del cine.

Putting my bias aside against God murdering innocent firstborns, thousands of others without showing commandments and wandering the desert for 40 years for a 300 mile journey... This is still a fantastic movie that (pardon the pun) commands one's attention every Easter.

Acting and dialogue is top notch thanks to the legendary cast and the effects still hold up for their time. One doesn't need to be religious to appreciate this masterpiece. So let it be written, so let it be done!

"Harden yourself against subordinates. Have no friend. Trust no woman. "

"His hands would be gnarled and broken from the brick pits, his back scarred from the taskmaster's whip, but in his heart would burn the spirit of the living God."

as a kid watching this on TV every Easter season scared the hell out of me the vapor coming down out of the sky 2 kill all the first born baby-after all I'm a first born baby!

The Ten Commandments have certainly aged since 1956, but it remains a true classic film that maybe be nearly four hours long yet I still wish it was longer. Great acting, fantastic set pieces, and a great adaptation of the Biblical tale, the film is a fantastically daring film. Cecil B. DeMille showcases why he is the legend that he is with this film and Charlton Heston brilliantly depicts Moses. The task of watching the film will prove daunting for many, but this pilgrimmage is more than worth your time.

Watched this over the course of 3 or 4 Sundays with the kids. It's as good as I remembered it being as a kid. I loved when it would come on TV around Easter time. "Bombastic" is the right term for it.

Best Cecil DeMille blockbuster in history, with a great cast of 10,000 extras, and known actors, nominated for six Oscars, and that amount should have been taken, but won 1. The scene in which Moses separates the waters of the Sea red makes it the most famous of production.
