    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A nice little movie about the Biblical story of Joseph. While it`s not as impressive as The Prince Of Egypt, it still delivers.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs and the picture is clear of any defects. The colors are vibrant and the saturation level is very accurate.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are used occasionally and help add some ambiance to the movie.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a read-along, 3 karaoke songs, a trivia game, 3 storyboards, some production notes and some DVD-ROM features. All in all, it shows that the extras are intended for kids, rather than to adults.
    Bottom line - an enjoyable movie with a decent disc to match.
