My wife dragged me off to see the recently released animated Ten Commandments. I will admit that there was a little kicking and screaming. I was looking forward to something with a little more action.
Okay, okay! I will be honest, I liked the film. There were parts that reminded me of Disney's film on the same subject but that was probably because there are only so many ways you can show a burning bush.
The Ten Commandments held closer to the biblical text. That was a relief to the typical re-interpretation by Hollywood of any classic story (biblical or not).
I would recommend that you go and see this film. I would hesitate taking small children to it.
