The movie's proudest accomplishment is that it revises our version of Moses toward something more immediate and believable, more humanly knowable.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, 2008-03-19
This is sensational cinema: crowds swarming among pyramids in eye-popping 3-D, camerawork that's distinctly Spielbergian in its fluidity.
David Edelstein, Slate, 2008-03-19
The blend of animation techniques somehow demonstrates mastery modestly, while the special effects are nothing short of magnificent.
Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader, 2008-03-19
As epic, emotionally satisfying spectacle, it's way up there with the very best in mainstream animation.
Derek Adams, Time Out, 2006-06-24
The handsomely animated Prince of Egypt is an amalgam of Hollywood biblical epic, Broadway supermusical and nice Sunday school lesson.
Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle, 2005-07-21
An inspiring translation of biblical grandeur, turning the story of one of history's greatest heroes into an entertaining, visually dazzling cartoon.
Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle, 2002-06-18
The 400-member-strong Prince of Egypt team (led by directors Brenda Chapman, Steve Hickner and Simon Wells and ramrodded by executive producer Jeffrey Katzenberg) have created a succession of visual wonders.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, 2001-02-14
This movie is worth a trip to the local multiplex by viewers of all ages, races, and religious persuasions.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2000-01-01
It's sophisticated, both intellectually and morally!
Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter, 2000-01-01
The Prince of Egypt goes beyond fanciful and magical. It is the first spiritual animated film ever, as deep and resonant as it is soaringly inventive!
Susan Stark, Detroit News, 2000-01-01
A visually breathtaking film!
Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz, 2000-01-01
A well-made work with much to recommend it!
Janet Maslin, New York Times, 2000-01-01
If The Prince of Egypt falls short in its song and story, it succeeds gloriously in its epic grandeur and visual splendor.
Sean Means, Film.com, 2000-01-01
For a cartoon, the movie is overpowering!
Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, 2000-01-01
If de Mille had seen this film, he would have gone back to the drawing board!
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2000-01-01
Takes itself too seriously.
Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2002-07-12
The Prince of Egypt is middlebrow kitsch, but kitsch straining for respectability and therefore without the energy that can make kitsch entertaining.
Charles Taylor, Salon.com, 2000-01-01
Rather than Jerry Falwell, I'd have had the production vetted by Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks.
J. Hoberman, Village Voice, 2000-01-01
The film lacks creative exuberance, any side pockets of joy.
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 2000-01-01
I wish DreamWorks had been more truly daring instead of merely competitive and worked a little longer at evolving a drawing style that departed more radically from the Disney house style than this film does.
Jay Carr, Boston Globe, 2000-01-01
