There is some really spectacular music in this movie. It almost seems like the stage is in the room. I give it 4 stars.

When I first realized that I had ordered this movie as part of a plan to watch everything Val Kilmer has ever done, I thought I had made a huge mistake. Val Kilmer? In a musical? About Moses? Right.
Then, the perfect afternoon for watching a movie came along and we sat down to see just how bad it was - plenty of popcorn and soda - and our Snarkometer hats on, ready to repost the movie as soon as we had watched it. Then we started the movie.
And we were quiet. And we watched the whole thing. And tears were cried at two different places by people who tend to cry at tearful things. The set design was astonishing; the costumes were fabulous and reasonably accurate (at least not offensive in inaccuracy); the script was logical, well-read and easy to follow; the songs were *good*!
We sat. Staring at the TV screen. Someone pushed the right button on the remote, and we watched it all again.
Yes. This is a good movie. Val does sing and act and does it well. So do a lot of other people. It is a retelling of the Charlton Heston "10 Commandments", so don't expect a different version of the story. Even the special effects were good - just remember this is a movie of a musical done on a stage and limited to what can be done on a stage. Very cool.
Find your own copy. I'm keeping this one....

I Love This!

"I wanted to see this but since I've rarely left Texas, I had to settle to get the movie. Val Kilmer is one of my favorite actors of all time. Adam Lambert is currently on American Idol and didn't know he was in the movie until I heard him sing "Is Anybody Listening". It goves me goosebumps. I love the dancing!! The plot shows the love of mothers, the cruelty of the Pharoh and how God can harden and soften other's hearts for certain things to happen. There is one song that I don't really care for and that's "The Glory of Ra". I just realized who that guy is! The man who plays Rmases is also Raoul from The Phantom of The Opera from 2004! No wonder he looked familiar! The women were AMAZING! Now all I have to do is buy the Soundtrack because I get songs in my head randomly. Do they sound the same on the CD as they do in the film? Must investigate."
Awesome pre-Idol performance from Adam Lambert!!

"I got this to see an early Adam Lambert performance. He totally nails it in "Is Anybody Listening?" The guy has some serious pipes, the DVD is worth it for his solos alone! A worthy purchase for American Idol fans!"

"Even though I can understand some people not "in" to this show, I'd like to give it a standing ovation.
Val Kilmer is perfect. Although he doesn't have the range of a musical theater performer, he has a great voice, and I would definitely buy his solo album. This said, even though the whole cast is amazing, my hat goes off to Adam Lambert. His "Is Anybody Listening" performance is stellar. Why is this artist not in a musical that gives him the main role is a miss. Hopefully, his time will come.
So, thanks to all involved... great show!"
