This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.

The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful

The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.

A common complaint I see is how many differences there are between this movie and the story in the bible. While I do not refute this, I don't think these differences should be held against the film. I was 6 when The Prince of Egypt came out and I remember watching it with my family. This movie has become a pillar in my faith. A source of faith when I am lacking and a dose of hope when I feel none. Game of Thrones is a tv series based on a book. As graphic as it is, it is nothing compared to the violence in the books. If Game of Thrones were made into a tv series, many things would have to be left out or altered. Still, it is an amazing, highly ranked series. My point on being tangent here, is that if you discredit this film because it is different from the bible, you are missing out on a great film. The movie is adapted for children but still conveys an unfathomable message of faith and hope even when there seems to be none. If you are looking for a more realistic version of the story, watch The Ten Commandments. But I will leave you with this; this movie came out when I was six. I am now twenty five and as a (potentially biased) Christian, I have watched this movie countless times and I never tire of its message and feeling of hope, faith and inspiration.

This film is such an emotional experience, I literally cry throughout the film, not just one or two places, but throughout. If anyone says DreamWorks isn't talented or anything like that, they need to check their pulse, because this film made Disney realize what a monster DreamWorks could eventually come, but a good monster, at least for us audiences. OK, what is it that makes this film so wonderful. The idea of tackling such a sensitive topic as the story of Moses really was a risky move for DreamWorks, a film that could make or break them. Kudos, because it was so risky. They didn't shoehorn anything and gave us a fully realized, and well put together masterpiece of a film. Now here in 2017 and beyond people are starting to realize the brilliance and the majesty of the film. What works so well is the effort put into this, the music by Hans Zimmer is his best since The Lion King, and the songs are better than the songs Disney was making at the time in 1998. So much so that one was rewarded an Oscar. As of right now it is the only DreamWorks song "When You Believe" to win an Oscar. The animation is topnotch, about as good as The Lion King, and the story is heartwarming, and heartbreaking at times. The film isn't afraid to go to some dark places. The performances of the actors was genuine especially from Val Kilmer and Ralph Fiennes. Sandra Bullock and Jeff Goldblum make an appearance which is always nice. The only problem I have is the attempt at comedy. If you can't make good comedy work in a drama film like this, don't do it at all. But of course it had to appeal to kids somewhat. That's one thing about animated films is they always have to appeal to kids one way or another, even in films that don't need the lowbrow humor for your toddler. If they took the comedy out, it would have been more impactful than it already is. This isn't the only film that does it though, a generally great film but is bombarded by needless and forced comedy. Animated films should help kids grow, not stay kids. So let some blood on screen, let murder happen on screen, life isn't always fun and sweet. But, that's the only grip, other than that, its great. Now to grade. Animation: A Story: A+ Characters: A- Music: A+ Comedy: D+ Overall: A

Most incredible movie with great graphics and story line, let alone those beautiful songs! Always have loved this story from the Bible and this broadened my adoring for it immensely. Love all the scenes from this movie and how they tug at your heart, such as Moses leaving then returning to his brother Ramses or meeting his biological siblings Miriam and Aaron once again. Everything was wonderful. Fantastic work Dreamworks.
