Pros:Great effects for a movie made in this age!

Cons:That dang intermission!

The Bottom Line: This movie still rocks! It is good for children, good for learning, and good entertainment!


Call me cheesy. Call me corny. I don't care. I'm 34 years old and I still believe that this is the best movie of all time! The original Ten Commandments starring Charleton Heston and Yule Brenner is still the greatest of TV drama. I'm still stirred, whooed, startled, and pleased by this movie.

The Plot
The plot is a given! Just follow the Bible! The movie portrays the Bible pretty concisely. There are a few "Huh?" moments, but it still gets the Gospel message across. Yes it is dramatic, bu so is the Bible!

The Actors
I believe that this movie would have failed if it had used any other actors. I actually felt Yoshabel's pain when she got a chance to touch Moses' arm after he was an adult and still didn't know the truth about his mother. Some of the lines were a little corny, but I believe that the directors were trying to portray the way people spoke throughout Biblical history. The characters were believable. I had to constantly remind myself that this was a Biblical movie because Yule Brenner looked so sexy when he was sure that he had gotten rid of Moses. anyway, back to the subject. Yule Brenner is a great actor. He played the villain very well. Charleton Heston was great because you didn't really feel sorry for him. i was upset but felt a little bit of "that's what you get" when he was ousted from Egypt.

The Special Effects
I am impressed. Why? Because of the time that this movie was created. These were very impressive graphics during a time that had computers that were the size of cars!

Realism
I like the fact that the producers didn't omit too much. This made the plot more realistic, even for someone that's never read the Bible. Some of the parts were sad, but it is what was written in the Bible. Such as: the pharaoh's son dying, people being killed that didn't continue to follow moses, Moses not going to the promised land. Also, I admit that most of the lines are corny. However, most of the movie made in hose days had corny lines. "frankly darling, I don't give darn!"

The Length
Yes this movie is long. But I never lose focus or interest during its almost 6 hours. Some things could have been omitted, such as; that dang darned intermission that seemed to last forever, the boring speech at the beginning of the movie, or the long, long, long list of credits at the beginning of the movie. Thank God for the fast forward button. Actually, I was the story was a little longer. I would have liked to see what the promised land looked like!

Overall
I still cannot get enough of this movie. I like the action, I like the drama, I love the corny lines. I love pretty much everything about this movie.
