The Ten Commandments

Critics Consensus

The Ten Commandments proves that not even one of humanity's most enduring tales is strong enough to overcome a biblical plague of cheap-looking animation.

  • It's like watching Max Headroom lead his people out of Egypt.

  • Ponderous but somewhat moving.

  • Thou shalt not cast Christian Slater as Moses, no matter how much the Hollywood party boy wants to fulfill some form of karmic community service.

  • While the story is solid, the computer-generated animation, which lacks any flow and grace, is another matter. Actually, it's kind of creepy

  • A beyond-unimpressive computer-animated retelling of the story of Moses, The Ten Commandments seems to have been made using public-domain software, and targeted squarely at kids impressed by any brightly colored moving objects.

  • A well-intentioned misfire featuring 3-D CGI animation that recalls lesser vidgames of the mid-1990s.

Audience Reviews for The Ten Commandments

  • Oct 24, 2008
    The story is obvious so let's look to other concerns about this movie: The voice over is great concerning Moses, but some of the other's are unconvincing. The animation is a little sketchy as sometimes it seems as if people are moving way to fast and sometimes do not move as clean cut as some animation films I have seen. This is 2008 and that is unexcuseable for any film. However, the story was told well and down to the tee-in which that made it slightly enjoyable. I think it could of been more children related, as it is animated, however my little nephew that I sit down to watch it with was hardly engaged. The dialogue at time seemed a bit stale. Dont let this review stop you from watching this one though. It's not by all means a BAD movie, but for an animation film in todays age, it's lacking.
