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

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.

There's an endearing, earnest quality to The Ten Commandments that transcends its star-studded cast and computer-generated animation.

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.

Audience Reviews for The Ten Commandments


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.
