Good movie. A Classic about the 10 Commandments, and it came on Christmas Eve, just in time to be given as a gift.

The movie has some very obvious merits; many of the special effects (particularly the 'Angel of Death' vapor, and the massive parting of the Red Sea) are still astonishing, today; Elmer Bernstein's score is an often 'over the top' joy to listen to; & the cast includes some very entertaining supporting players, including Nina Foch, Vincent Price, and DeMille's longtime associate, Henry Wilcoxon.

ReviewSource BBC Film Review
Review [Remake] Shot in wonderful VistaVision onto Technicolor stock, this is a film where the colours are bright and saturated with vivid flesh tones. A near impeccable print transfers to DVD this spectacle of scale and grandeur for a whole new generation to marvel over. Particularly impressive in 'Vista-Vibrance' is the 'light of God' breaking through a fresh sky, that in a later scene turns to an angry blood red in this fine transfer.

ReviewRating 8
Review [Remake] Say what you will about the factual content here -- as it turns out, the film is based on a collection of novels, not historical texts -- this is a movie about spectacle and excess. It doesn't feel particularly religious or spiritual; it's an adventure on the grandest -- and longest -- scale. Heston may as well be screaming about Soylent Green, but damn if he doesn't make for one hell of an inspiring leader.
