Cecil B. DeMille's mammoth Biblical production looks absolutely incredible like it was shot yesterday, on the restored Blu-ray. Yes, the acting hearkens back to another era of big, over-emphatic emoting but seems strangely appropriate for Bible stories. The picture is packed with numerous movie stars, both already famous and the soon to be famous, and is a visual delight, the old school special effects, which use miniatures and matte paintings, recreating impressive vistas of the ancient world. Still incredibly effective is the parting of the Red Sea sequence which can nearly send a chill up your spine for its grandiosity.
Tells the story of Moses' journey from prince of Egypt to prophet and leader of the Hebrew slaves.
