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.
June 24, 2006
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.

Takes itself too seriously.

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

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.

I wish DreamWorks had been more truly daring instead of merely competitive and worked a little longer at evolving a drawing style that departed more radically from the Disney house style than this film does.

Sometimes out-DeMilles DeMille's 1956 live-action epic, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS!
January 1, 2000
For a cartoon, the movie is overpowering!
January 1, 2000
The Prince of Egypt goes beyond fanciful and magical. It is the first spiritual animated film ever, as deep and resonant as it is soaringly inventive!
January 1, 2000
The drawn and computer-animated imagery is top notch and seamlessly integrated, but the central characters' tawny complexions and the often chiaroscuro lighting sometimes obscure all but the whites of their eyes and their pearl-perfect teeth.
January 1, 2000
The film lacks creative exuberance, any side pockets of joy.
January 1, 2000
This movie is worth a trip to the local multiplex by viewers of all ages, races, and religious persuasions.
January 1, 2000
If de Mille had seen this film, he would have gone back to the drawing board!
January 1, 2000
If The Prince of Egypt falls short in its song and story, it succeeds gloriously in its epic grandeur and visual splendor.
January 1, 2000
A visually breathtaking film!
January 1, 2000
Surprisingly moving and compelling!

Rather than Jerry Falwell, I'd have had the production vetted by Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks.
