An oracle has prophesized that a child will grow up to become the Prince of Egypt, and in order to prevent this from happening The Egyptian Pharaoh (Paul Rhys) orders the immediate slaughter of all newborn males. No child in the entire kingdom is spared except for one. His name was Moses, the son of a Hebrew slave. Set adrift on the Nile immediately after he was born, Moses escapes certain death and enjoys a lavish upbringing in a royal Egyptian household.

Audience Reviews for The Ten Commandments


Long, contemplative version of the events around Moses leading his people and getting the tablets containing the ten commandments. It's thoughtful, but talky - with dialogue infused w contemporary questions and observations. A great idea, considering the need for explaining certain aspects of character motivations. The downside is that it tends to fly in the face of simply having faith in an unseen God and acting on that conviction. Part 1 has all the drama and action, Part 2 has all the drama and talking. It devolves into a bloated set of arguments that are brevity-free - not worthy of a movie. Part 1= 3/5 Part 2= 2/5 Total score= 2.5 of 5

A boring and blandly scripted update of the classic that tries to be part narrative and part documentary.

scenes jump often and abruptly. camera angles are kind of weird, and cheap. But i do like how they show a new part, and new scenarios not mentioned in the first Ten Commandments
