Why another movie about Moses, even from a Bible-series production company–Promenade Pictures?  I don’t know, except that this Ten Commandments, from 2007, covers material well beyond the liberation of the children of Israel from Egypt.  Not only are the plagues there, so is the constant carping of the Israelites in the desert, the heavenly provision of water and manna, the worship of the golden calf, and much praying by a harried Moses.  In point of fact, it is a movie somewhat more about God than about the great Hebrew leader who follows Him, and this too makes it distinctive. 

The dialogue is certainly less imaginative than that in Cecil B. DeMille’s film, but the Promenade Pictures TTC offers captivating, CGI-heavy animation.  I like it despite the characters’ being quite robotic.  God, by the way, is voiced by Elliott Gould!   But it works.
