Your Opinions and Comments

9 / 10
The story of the exodus of Egypt has never been told so beautifully.
This is a really great movie, both visually and audio-wise.
The video transfer is awesome. The animations are stunning and combine all sort of technologies, both old and new.
There are no compression marks at all and the picture is constantly crystal clear.
The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very impressive. Both the music and the sound effects are stunning. The actors do a great job in making all the biblical figures come to life and talk. Talk about a LOT of talents in one movie.
All the menus are beautifully animated.
The extras include every aspect of the movie. All in all, it`ll take you about an hour to view all of them. Pay attention to the 26-language (or so) "When you believe" feature - AMAZING. This scene is rather moving (like some scenes on The Lion King and Bambi).
Children would definitely benefit from this movie. It`ll give them a new perspective of the famous biblical story. Adults would enjoy it as well, since it never looks and sounds too childish.
Bottom line - a MUST see (and probably a must buy as well).
