Cecil B. DeMille's Biblical epic is never subtle, but always exciting and interesting. It features bold special effects, some strong acting by an ensemble cast, and a classic retelling of a story that spans several decades. The crossing of the Red Sea scene remains one of the iconic scenes of film history.

I've gotta say, the dialogue was interesting. It could've been better in some places. And in others, it was excellent. Once you get the fact that he's actually a Hebrew slave, and not a prince, there really isn't much left of the plot. Edward G. Robinson's character made the movie much better. And, so did the imagery.

Though a long run time, The Ten Commandments is a creative, and cinematic look at Moses life and how he freed the jews from slavery. Great religion film. FINAL SCORE :::: 72% ::::

The Ten Commandments review

"So it was written..So it shall be done." Revisiting an old classic which is considered one of the pioneers for special effects. Moses (Charlton Heston) discovers his roots, born a Hebrew but raised by an Egyptian princess. Only minor qualms this reviewer had were the over acting of certain artists, love angles, Hollywood exaggerations, some ridiculous scenes due to poor dialogue and length. Heston did a splendid job in his portrayal. The score was wonderful and wardrobe elegant. Despite some dated special effects, it was still fascinating to see onscreen. Screenplay was exceptional with lines: "You have wisdom. You need nothing more." - Jethro, We're not animals. We are men." - Old man in the mud, "Life is full of surprises." - Seti. and "Joshua, we must have hope." - Lilia. A fi...
