“The story of Moses is done here and, although not totally Biblically accurate, this is about as close as it gets in Hollywood. The inaccuracies are minor.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe artwork was fabulous when it came out in 1999. Itu0026#39;s still very good, but animation has improved so fast in so short a time period that this is nothing special, art-wise, these day. However, it sure was when it was released just seven years ago. Itu0026#39;s just beautiful in parts. Some of the prettiest colors Iu0026#39;ve seen on film have been in animated movies the last decade, and this is a prime example. The parting of the Red Sea in here is awesomely-done by the artists. That scene also sported the best sound in the 99-minute film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe songs in here were nothing special but they didnu0026#39;t detract from the story because they were all short. Regarding the story, I only wish they had gone into detail on the plagues instead of just lumping them all together. They could have had some jaw-dropping scenes with the locusts, etc.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll-in-all a fine film and a rarity: a Biblical film that doesnu0026#39;t offend anyone.”
