A disappointing and uninspiring animated feature.

Striving to look impressive, The Prince of Egypt has no time for heart. This is spirituality without spirit.

An inspiring translation of biblical grandeur, turning the story of one of history's greatest heroes into an entertaining, visually dazzling cartoon.

Certainly technically-minded cartoon connoisseurs will feel many shivers of admiration on seeing this.

Maybe we should overlook the fact that the film's music and songs will be forgotten long before its images die away.

The 400-member-strong Prince of Egypt team (led by directors Brenda Chapman, Steve Hickner and Simon Wells and ramrodded by executive producer Jeffrey Katzenberg) have created a succession of visual wonders.

The Prince of Egypt is middlebrow kitsch, but kitsch straining for respectability and therefore without the energy that can make kitsch entertaining.

If The Prince of Egypt falls short in its song and story, it succeeds gloriously in its epic grandeur and visual splendor.

the people at DreamWorks put their brushes to the film with the spirit Moses put his staff in the mighty Nile, lighting it up with the eerie color of bloodshed.

Characters are extremely lifelike in appearance and movement, and some of the scenes are magnificently staged in composition and depth, including the well-known and beautifully executed parting of the Red Sea.
