I thought that this movie was quite spectacular overall. It is a very long movie and yet it still somehow feels like it has a really quick pace. The effects for the time were incredible even if by today's standard they are not. I flip flop on the whole religion thing from time to time, but a good movie is a good movie and this one was pretty great.

Awfully, ludicrously extravagant, 'The Ten Commandments' is a thoroughly entertaining 4-hour spectacle, never tedious, always massive, it may lack finesse but, as an epic, it certainly never gets old (dated but amusing and visual CGI excluded). Its retelling of the Bible is extraordinary and its cast as monumental as its décors (Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter). The film also includes a surprising introduction by Cecil B. DeMille in person, which reminds us that it is a very biased film. Anyway, 'The Ten Commandments' is well worth one or more viewings.

A marvelous Hollywood spectacle. Yul Brynner and Charleton Heston impress. An Easter Day favorite.

Totally deserves its seal of Classic Hollywood epic.
It looks big, it sounds big, its got big theatrical performances that balance cheese with seriousness, good god it SCREAMS big!
One of the more technically impressive films of the 1950's. Go check it out!

I have fond memories of watching this movie as a child at home with my family. It was an annual television movie that we never seemed to miss.

Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner carry the film with epic performances that match the epic story and production. So much so that anyone who sees it will forever think of Moses as Charlton Heston and Ramses as Brynner. It represents the pinnacle of both their film careers and showcases the immense talent and screen charisma of each. And as a director of epic proportions, DeMille creates his greatest masterpiece as a film that will last for generations. More than 60 years later it has done just that as there is no remaking or surpassing this telling of the story.

The problem with your review. You are an atheist. Consider the FX in 1956, it is a great movie and adheres to the story told in the Bible. At the very beginning the director Cecil B. De Mill tells you this is a film desined for the religious audience not for the non believer.

10 out of 10:

Visually dazzling, amazing direction, great sets, and a list of actors that are so good, The Ten Commandments makes for one of the best faith based films of all time.

The production values on this movie are tremendous. It strays a little from the biblical story and it is a little dated. Saying that however this movie is the best movie to come out in the 50s except for sunset Boulevard

This movie's main problem is that it drifts from the source so much.

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.

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.
