Goofs

When the plagues destroy Egypt, not a lot of monuments are shown being toppled. However, in the song "When You Believe", when the Hebrews are walking through the ruins of Egypt, there is far more damage and destruction of Egypt that what was seen in the Plagues. However, the entire breadth of the plagues could not be shown since, in the record of them, the plagues last a lot longer than a few minutes, leaving the possibility that we didn't get to see all of the destruction.

Quotes

[first lines]
Overseers: [chanting] Mud... Sand... Water... Straw. Faster! Mud... and lift... sand... and pull... water... and raise up! Straw... Faster!
Hebrews: [singing] With the sting of the whip on my shoulder, with the salt of my sweat on my brow... Elohim, God on high, can you hear your people cry? Help us now, this dark hour... Deliver us, hear our call, deliver us, Lord of all! Remember us, here in this burning sand! Deliver us, there's a land you promised us! Deliver us to the promised land!

a true classic
29 April 2000 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best animated movie of all time. It's not every day that they make a animated movie about a story of the bible. The writers, and animators were very accurate about telling the story. As a Christian I like it when they make movies about the bible. The animation, and music was truly awesome. I like everything about this movie. I recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. Children will love this movie. I'll tell you now you wont be disappointed. I really wasn't.
