Good Storytelling, Poor CGI
13 May 2014 | by David ElroySee all my reviews

As others have said, you need to accept some poor CGI to watch this one. Actually the backgrounds and colors are good, and the plagues are scary, but the human figures... yeah, they're ugly. Several figures are annoying caricatures, like the short whiney Hebrew with the vest. So you need to accept this flaw.

Everything else is very good - the voices, the pacing, the action and storytelling. It's surprisingly accurate to the Bible. I would have liked a little more sympathy for Ramses (like in Prince of Egypt), but he does have his sensitive moments, like when his eyes turn sad when he realizes his son might die. Other Egyptians are sympathetic, like the guard who regrets carrying out his harsh duties.

Although Moses doesn't order the killing of nonbelievers as he does in Exodus 32, he accepts that it will happen, and God takes care of things with an earthquake. This is good storytelling: retaining the main idea without making it too harsh for kids. Speaking of kids, my 7-yr-old loved this movie and insisted on watching it 3 times before I returned it! I recommend it for kids 7-10 (and their parents of course).

One thing portrayed particularly well is the ungratefulness of the freed Hebrews. This is a running theme in the Bible, and it's well handled here. The message is a good one: when we are ungrateful, our ingratitude affects those around us. Therefore, let us give thanks for what we have - every step of the way.
