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.
Though it boasts a noteworthy cast, the film suffers from clunky computer animation that appears to be hinged on technology at least several years behind the curve.
Adults will squirm at the dialogue and wonder how actors of such fine calibre manage to squander some of their star credentials
Here's an unusual but OK take on the story of Moses, the Exodus and, of course, "The Ten Commandments."
This is the inaugural film in a franchise of 12 feature films based on Bible stories, using a crude form of three-dimensional computer animation. One can only hope that the future entries in the series are better executed than this first one.
As a straightforward introducition to the biblical story, it is arguably better than some of the splashier or more sensational movies out there.
The characters' skin looks like hard plastic, so it's as if a bunch of GI Joes are trying to escape the plague of locusts, and all of the human characters appear to be lit from within, like nightlights.
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.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
