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

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.

The blend of animation techniques somehow demonstrates mastery modestly, while the special effects are nothing short of magnificent.

As epic, emotionally satisfying spectacle, it's way up there with the very best in mainstream animation.

The handsomely animated Prince of Egypt is an amalgam of Hollywood biblical epic, Broadway supermusical and nice Sunday school lesson.

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

A genuinely great work of art that is also an inspiring and theologically significant narrative.

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 may not rank as one of the great wonders of the world, but it sure ain't no pyramid scheme either.

Egypt comes stunningly alive, but the prince remains fuzzy.

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

The movie has some astonishing visual effects.

A well-made work with much to recommend it!
