The Prince of Egypt has to be the most hyped-up film of the season. However, the film successfully meets its hype's demands. The film is very serious, but adds just enough humor to make it enjoyable but not goofy. The animation is the best I think I've ever seen in hand-drawn animation. The end, when the Red Sea is parted, is truly an incredible sight. Sometimes during the course of the film, the "camera" moves around a character as he is in the center of attention as if it weren't animated, but actually filmed in real life. Because of little visual tricks like this, the viewer may find themselves forgetting that they are watching a cartoon. The voice acting is also quite incredible, the animation quality is superb, and the effects are breathtaking.
There's no cursing, no innuendo or sexual encounters, and the violence is subdued, considering the actual Biblical story. However, Prince... isn't for all ages. It's very creepy at times (especially during the plagues), and isn't suitable for all children. On the other hand, the movie is fantastic and should not be missed on the big screen! I suggest that every Christian see this film and support it so more will be made. It has been said that a film like this is being made for the story of Joseph and if Prince of Egypt does well, they will make a movie for Noah and maybe others!
Overall, the movie is incredibly good and has scored a rating of 4 and a half stars out of 5.- John DiBiase, (reviewed: 12/28/98)
