Movie Reviews

Not the best
Reading Mom | 03/08/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The story of Moses told on this DVD isn't the best of the best, but it is fair, and it does tell the story but in a different way. I would say buy this DVD is you're looking for a cheaper version of "Prince of Egypt" which anyways this is called "Prince of the Nile." Otherwise, I don't recommend this DVD."
This was AWFUL

"I bought this movie for my children, just to have a similar story told in a different way. Well, it was more than different - it was WAY off base. The story totally departs from the Biblical account of the life of Moses - some of the plagues are different, the Egyptian "brother" (named Amun?) joins him and becomes repentant, finally helping Moses to lead the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt. This is directly opposite of the Hebrew brother of Moses, named Aaron, joining Moses and working with him. The use of the "burning bush" becomes very "magical" instead of a once in a lifetime encounter with God, and is used repeatedly throughout the movie, including the bush coming to Moses while he and Amun are in prison.
I would absolutely NOT recommend this movie to anyone else. My 3rd grader said, "Mom, we need to get rid of this movie." I guess that sums up the review right there, as we will be getting rid of this one!"
Not scripturally accurate

"The real story is found in the book of Exodus, the first 14 chapters. The story portrayed on this video/DVD has the same central human figure (Moses) and the same setting (Egypt) but the rest of it is quite imaginative and does not agree with the truth. While I always encourage students to use their imaginations, it is hard to understand how someone could write a story like this and still market it as the story of Moses. Although it's told well and is interesting, it's not simply adding creative material to the story as written. I will be joining those who are throwing away their copies. If you've already bought this, take a good look before letting your children watch it. If you're looking for a good Moses movie, the Prince of Egypt one is much more accurate."
