The Prince of Egypt

1999 Home Video

Review:
Violent, tender, harsh, terrifying and life affirming, as is the story of any enslaved people, Dreamwork's version of Exodus is the Old Testament's tale of the Hebrews in ancient Egypt. Though Egypt of the time was the only multi-cultural society in recorded history, there still remained a hated group--the Hebrews.

This cinematic legend is stunning and provocative. Like much other current animation, it is inappropriate for young children. It is startlingly straightforward about hate, power, pain, anger and love.
