This is one of the best animated movie of all time. It's not every day thatthey make a animated movie about a story of the bible. The writers, andanimators were very accurate about telling the story. As a Christian I likeit when they make movies about the bible. The animation, and music was trulyawesome. I like everything about this movie. I recommend this movie toanyone and everyone. Children will love this movie. I'll tell you now youwont be disappointed. I really wasn't.

Quite possibly the most astonishing achievement in animation since Beautyand the Beast (and surpassing same), The Prince of Egypt is a lovinglycrafted, engaging piece of cinema. The main characters are well-realized,three-dimensional characters. The focus of the film is the conflict betweenRamses and his adopted brother, Moses, set against the backdrop of the epicevents in the book of Exodus. The result is a religious tale that treatsthe oft-ignored human element. Instead of merely relating the tale as itis, the story asks "how would a person *feel* if God appeared to them andtold them to do this? How would others react?" The script is light-yearsbeyond any past biblical epic.The animation style owes a small debt to Disney's house style, but goesabove and beyond in the details in character design (the Hebrews andEgyptians and Midians are clearly of different ethnic backgrounds, and nocharacter suffers from the doe-eyed Disney Belle syndrome). ComputerGenerated Imagery blends -- for the first time in an animated film --seamlessly with traditional cel animation. The film also takes some fairlyaudacious risks; Moses has a dream sequence in stiffly animatedhieroglyphics, completely switching animation styles for about five minutes,which I believe is completely unprecedented in animation. There are momentswhen the visual effects made me forget to breathe. If you blink during theparting of the red sea, you'll regret it. There is, I believe I can safelysay, not a second of the film that does not offer some sort of visualdelight -- from the deep symbolism of the hieroglyphics to the dizzyingchariot race in the opening sequence.The music has been touted by some critics as the film's weak link; such isdefinitely not the case. Stephen Schwartz' songs combine elements ofBroadway-esque show tunes with native Hebrew and Egyptian music. The songsare powerful and moving, sometimes no more than one verse in length,sometimes full-blown seven-minute extravaganzas like "Let My People Go."The one weaker song, surprisingly, is the theme "When You Believe." Evenfreed from Mariah Carey/Whitney Houston R&B cheese as it is in the movie,it's a watery definition of faith at best. Still, the scene in which ittakes place is powerful and the song is beautifully performed.If the film has a weak link, it might be the voice casting,Val Kilmer andPatrick Stewart in particular. The two voices are distinctive of thegentleman who possess them, and thus are distracting in this format. Butsuch is a minor quibble, and should not dissuade anyone from seeing thegreatest animated story ever told.
As the author of THE WORLD OF ANIMATION, an Eastman Kodakbook which won three international book festival awardsand as an animation writer-director, I have for many years longed for theU.S. animation industry to remember that Walt Disney, nor any of thepioneers of animation limited their art to children's audiences.
With THE PRINCE OF EGYPT, the DreamWorks animation team has finallytaken us full circle and helped the United States join the rest of the worldin offering us the first U.S. animated feature since, perhaps, FANTASIA,created for mature audiences while remaining child-friendly. If you aspireto art in any form, and/or specifically love line art and graphics as I do,you must not miss seeing this film on the big screen. I applaud DreamWorksfor this triumph in graphic excellence.
Two brief critiques: First, the choice of story. The story is basedon Exodus from the Old Testament (and other Scripture) which is scanty, tosay the least. Although the studio made an effort to flesh out the storywith the Ramses/Moses relationship there is simply not enough meat to goaround.This opinion is debatable, a very minor aspect and only my view as astory teller. At the bottom line the overall work is so extraordinary anypossible lack in literacy is more than made up for in the visual mountingand production of the film, something which is nothing less than inspiring.
The other criticism is in the highly questionable use of "name"voices for casting, a puzzling development since there is no meaningful boxoffice data supporting it. This practice is known to conflict the viewerpsychologically as the drawn images begin to do battle with the ones in theaudience memory with the cerebral bridge of highly recognizable photo imagesof known voices.Walt Disney knew this quite well and avoided it. Indeed, he usedthe voice of a complete unknown for Snow White, Adriana Caselotti, (whopassed away in 1997). Disney was careful to avoid the existing Hollywoodqueens of song of the period, Judy Garland and Deanna Durbin, the latter,whose prodigious vocal talent actually saved Universal Pictures from goingbelly up a short time later.
However, at the bottom line, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT will become a trueclassic and has taken the art of animation up to a new threshold, a model towhich future animators will aspire.
