The Ten Commandments

An Ordinary Man An Extraordinary Calling


The Ten Commandments
Yet another retelling of the Moses story, in animated form. For those that don't know this biblical story, it is set when the Hebrews were captives in Egypt. A new-born boy is sent off on a reed raft (instead of being killed), and rescued by the royal household. He is raised as an Egyptian prince, before falling out of favour and sent into exile. He then gets a message from God to rescue his fellow Hebrews from slavery in Egypt, which puts him into conflict with Pharaoh. After several demonstrations of power, Pharaoh lets his people go, only to change his mind and chase after them with his army.

Die Burger
Jeanne Hugo quote iconDie animasie is van 'n baie lae gehalte.

ScreenIt
quote iconThrow in some contemporary sounding dialogue, little bits of attempted humor, and some artistic liberties with the Old Testament tale, and the result is a less than satisfactory experience.
