Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
As many critics correctly noted, Dreamworks missed a golden opportunity in its first animated feature to assert a distinct visual style, preferring to imitate the familiar Disney look, hence paying its primary competitor a huge compliment. But The Prince of Egypt still exists as a mature first foray into the market by the young studio. It's nothing if not grand, complete with towering pyramids, electric chariot races, and a first-rate parting of the Red Sea. The film's greater accomplishment is making The Bible accessible to those unwilling to slog through chapter and verse -- namely, children. Hearing the idiosyncratic and inescapably modern speech patterns of Sandra Bullock and Jeff Goldblum may take viewers completely out of the Biblical moment, but those with greater screen time, notably Ralph Fiennes as Rameses, fare much better. The hit title song, popularized by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, lends a certain frivolity to religious characters and situations that might be conveyed more soberly -- a necessary part of selling the film as a phenomenon of multiple media. But the animators make up for it with their dignified renderings of the landscape and its people, showing a particular ability to wow with their chilling depiction of the ten plagues, as remarkable for what's left unseen as what's visualized. The Prince of Egypt is a tight and effective depiction of brothers torn apart by their differing beliefs in the right course of action, simultaneously personal and large-scale -- a solid story on its own, which also happens to be the foundation for both Christian and Jewish scripture.

    A condensed version of Exodus, but still enjoyable.

    DreamWorks researched this animated film extensively before putting it onto film and the result is a “fairly” accurate attempt to retell the story of Moses (voiced by Val Kilmer) who was sent by God of the Hebrews to deliver His people from the bondage of slavery under Pharaoh. What’s different in this film is that it focuses on the relationship between Moses and Ramses (voiced by Ralf Fiennes), who grew up loving each other as brothers only to face each other later in life as enemies. Parents and kids alike should enjoy this entertaining and visually breathtaking film. G- (uh, well it’s G. Enjoy it.)

    Amazing!

    This movie is, without comparison, one of the best movies of my time. This movie is so heart wrenchingly amazing and beautiful that it actually helped my atheistic friend realize the beauty and emotion that she missed from having religion. A Movie Going MASTERPIECE!!! 2 Thumbs up! I encourage all, young and old, religious or not, to allow this film into your heart. It is guaranteed to become an automatic favorite.

    AWESOME! True to form.

    This is by far the closest to the real story in Exodus. I loved how clearly it shows God, using Moses, helps His people.

    Excellent Movie for Christians and non-Christians alike!

    If there was ever to be a movie about Moses, this would have to be it. With a great musical component, the Prince of Egypt will keep both those young and old enthraled in Moses' journey from being the adopted son of Pharoah, to his time in the desert, and to his final attempts to free the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt.
