Critic Reviews for Joseph: King of Dreams
An opening title card hints this may be the first in a series of Bible videos from the DreamWorks factory. Here's hoping there are more.
A new technical benchmark for straight-to-tape animated features, putting Disney's chintzy home video efforts to shame.
... fails to bring Joseph and his brothers to life the way Moses and Rameses came to life in The Prince of Egypt. Sappy, run-of-the-mill songs drown out any subtleties.
Audience Reviews for Joseph: King of Dreams
Ben Affleck stars in DreamWorks' straight-to-video follow-up to The Prince of Egypt, Joseph: King of Dreams. Based on the biblical account, the story follows Joseph (a child of prodigy), whose brothers grow jealous of him and sell him into slavery, but Joseph's ability to interpret dreams soon draws the attention of the Pharaoh. Unfortunately, the animation quality is really a step down; though it keeps to the same design style and coloring as The Prince of Egypt. The music too is rather unremarkable, and is at best functional. Suffering from a clear lack of ambition, Joseph: King of Dream is a disappointing and mediocre animated film.
Look at the cast! Ben Affleck? Mark Hamill? Tom Virtue (apparently appearing in every TV show ever made)? Wow! And to think it went straight to DVD, even with Luke Skywalker as the voice of Judah. How much would it suck to have to list "voice of Simeon/Slave-trader" on your resume? ha
I am 25 and loved this film. The animation is good where a disney animation might be 4 stars this is deserved a 4 star for animation. Cool Film !
