The Prince of Egypt Reviews

September 11, 2019
This story reminds me that in a world run by men and kings, there is wonder and strength in the woman, in the child, and in the slave, to change the course of history.

I love the reverent tone throughout and the incredible music

The animation is stunning.

Prince gives great emotional depth to the story...

It turns much too serious for its own good, though it otherwise is an entirely satisfying animated adventure story.

Well-told story that's careful not to offend.

When Moshe encounters the burning bush and confronts a God who calls Himself I Am That I Am...it is almost as if the scene compels the audience to remove their shoes for holy ground is underfoot

The movie's proudest accomplishment is that it revises our version of Moses toward something more immediate and believable, more humanly knowable.

This is sensational cinema: crowds swarming among pyramids in eye-popping 3-D, camerawork that's distinctly Spielbergian in its fluidity.
March 19, 2008
The angular animation and muted colour palette gives the film a look more redolent of classic European cartoons than their homelier American counterparts.
March 19, 2008
The blend of animation techniques somehow demonstrates mastery modestly, while the special effects are nothing short of magnificent.
September 22, 2007
Hyperactive and visually busy without being much fun.
June 24, 2006
As epic, emotionally satisfying spectacle, it's way up there with the very best in mainstream animation.
December 6, 2005
Much of the animation is stunning and all of the vocal performances are good to great. It's just much of the passion seems to be in not stepping on anyone's beliefs or interpretations, instead of in telling the story in the most compelling way possible.

The handsomely animated Prince of Egypt is an amalgam of Hollywood biblical epic, Broadway supermusical and nice Sunday school lesson.
April 2, 2005
It could've worked with well-thought out characters, but limps along with the mostly flat and unmemorable ones that populate the picture.
January 15, 2005
Audiences may truly be shocked at how far Katzenberg is willing to go to maintain the story's integrity.
June 22, 2004
Don't expect dancing camels and singing sphinxes.
May 22, 2003
It is a more than decent adaptation of the classic tale, one that, despite what I have said in the previous paragraph, never talks down to its audience.
May 20, 2003
Except for the rousing opening scenes, children may find the film too slow and humorless for cartoon fare. Most adults would prefer a more sophisticated exploration of spiritual themes.
