Rating: 1.5/5 -- This is the inaugural film in a franchise of 12 feature films based on Bible stories, using a crude form of three-dimensional computer animation. One can only hope that the future entries in the series are better executed than this first one. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- As a straightforward introducition to the biblical story, it is arguably better than some of the splashier or more sensational movies out there. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Here's an unusual but OK take on the story of Moses, the Exodus and, of course, "The Ten Commandments."

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Ponderous but somewhat moving.
Rating: 1/4 -- Though it boasts a noteworthy cast, the film suffers from clunky computer animation that appears to be hinged on technology at least several years behind the curve.
Rating: F -- A beyond-unimpressive computer-animated retelling of the story of Moses, The Ten Commandments seems to have been made using public-domain software, and targeted squarely at kids impressed by any brightly colored moving objects.
Rating: 2/4 -- Thou shalt not cast Christian Slater as Moses, no matter how much the Hollywood party boy wants to fulfill some form of karmic community service. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:
This marvelous animation introduces the Ten Commandments in stories that children of today can relate to and understand in their own way. Its central characters are youngsters dealing with the common situations of a childs modern daily life -- at home, in school, or playing with friends. The family is of central importance in this DVD, because it is within the family circle that children grow and learn best. Quite often children find themselves in situations in which they are challenged to make the right choices, and those right choices must be guided by the Ten Commandments of God. Each Commandment is taught in the form of an easy-to-understand story, and each Commandment Story is a separate chapter on the DVD. Every chapter begins with a cheerful monk-teacher, who introduces the story with a friendly reminder that Jesus gave us the single Greatest Commandment of them all -- Love one another as I have loved you. Designed for ages 2 through 8.
