A big-name voice cast doesn't cover for a script that may hit the Biblical high points but somehow misses the dramatic heart of the story.

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.

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.

October 18, 2007
Where the filmmakers may have aimed to create something comparable to Shrek, instead the quality falls somewhere between that and the movers in the 1985 Dire Straits' Money for Nothing video.

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

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

Here's an unusual but OK take on the story of Moses, the Exodus and, of course, "The Ten Commandments."

Adults will squirm at the dialogue and wonder how actors of such fine calibre manage to squander some of their star credentials

I've found more nuance in the two-page Bible stories we read with our kids after breakfast.

October 18, 2007
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.

Shamelessly rips off interpretive conceits and even specific dramatic beats from The Prince of Egypt.

October 18, 2007
A well-intentioned misfire featuring 3-D CGI animation that recalls lesser vidgames of the mid-1990s.
October 18, 2007
This new version of the story of Moses is a huge step backward for theatrical CG animation, or any animation for that matter.

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.

Ponderous but somewhat moving.

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.

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