Storyline

In this animated adaptation of the Bible story Moses hears the voice of God from a burning bush, which inspires him to confront Egypt's pharaoh and demand freedom for the Israelite slaves. The pharaoh agrees after a series of horrific plagues, and Moses leads the Israelites through the parted Red Sea into the harsh freedom of the desert. There he ascends Mount Sinai and returns with the Ten Commandments. Written by Anonymous

This one deserves at least a plague of locusts
20 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is a terrible film on every front: ghastly animation borrowed from a video game, boring music, paired with wretched acting from Christian Slater as Moses, Alfred Molina as Ramses, Elliott Gould (hideously miscast) as the voice of God, and a lot of people you've never heard of -- and it's just as well.

Are you a Bible scholar? You'll love the way they throw in the 16th century misreading of YHWH (Yahweh) as "Jehovah." Are you a Biblical literalist? Then enjoy the way the filmmakers have Moses abandon his wife and kiddies, let Aaron off the hook, and rewrite the punishment of the Israelites for that unfortunate Golden Calf affair. Are you a fan of Saturday morning cartoons? Stick with those; they have better acting and more wit.

The movie is also misnamed; the Big 10 occupy only a small part of it. It would have been better call it "Moses." Actually, it would have been best to leave it alone.
