What to know

critics consensus

The Prince of Egypt's stunning visuals and first-rate voice cast more than compensate for the fact that it's better crafted than it is emotionally involving. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

In this animated retelling of the Book of Exodus, Egyptian Prince Moses (Val Kilmer), upon discovering his roots as a Jewish slave, embarks on a quest to free his people from bondage. When his plea is denied by his brother Rameses (Ralph Fiennes), the new pharaoh, a series of horrific plagues strike Egypt. Moses finally leads the Israelites to freedom by parting the Red Sea and drowning the Egyptian army. God then gives Moses the Ten Commandments, a list of rules for his people to live by.

Audience Reviews for The Prince of Egypt

  • Mar 29, 2016
    Visually stunning and emotionally powerful, The Prince of Egypt is a stellar animated film that never takes it's audience for granted - and appeals to both the religious and non-religious alike thanks to a magnificent score, brilliant performances and a strong sense of atmosphere.

    From DreamWorks comes the animated biblical epic The Prince of Egypt. The film follows the story of Moses; from his struggle to accept the truth of his Hebrew heritage to his confrontation with his adopted brother Rameses when God commands him to lead His people out of bondage. Starring Val Kilmer, Ralph Fiennes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Goldblum, Steve Martin, and Martin Short, the cast is quite impressive and delivers some very good performances. Additionally, the animation is especially well-done, featuring a crisp, rigid design style that is textured with rich coloring. The musical numbers however, are rather weak and aren't that memorable. Yet, Hans Zimmer's powerful and sweeping score more than makes up for this. A visionary and inspirational film, The Prince of Egypt is an extraordinary first outing for DreamWorks into the realm of traditional animation.

    Great film, still holds up after all these years. Music is phenomenal, animation is great, and this has one of the best voice acting casts you'll ever hear.

    An animated spectacle with a touching story based off of the story of Moses, the Prince of Egypt is beautiful to look at, heartfelt, and features one of the best movie soundtracks I've ever heard. Every song in the film is great. This is one of Dreamworks best films or its best. Very overlooked in my opinion. Overall Rating: 92
