"The part where only a circumscion appeases God's wrath got cut!!!"
I am only reviewing this movie because some dipshit keeps ruining the rating because he feels SO strongly about it. I hate you and I can't wait for the new database to come into action so you can't do that anymore, and you really suck a lot. One opinion, one vote. Democracy, you fascist idiot.That said, I will now review this movie. It was not perfect. By far. I disliked the animation. I felt that in some scenes the style itself was attempting to me reminiscent of egyptian art, extremely flat and stylized. But then at other points it was as if they were going for superrealism. Both are fine approaches and both were done well, but I dislike their juxtapositions. The one exception being the parting of the red sea, which hey, is pretty damned magestic, and any way to emphasize that is ok...One example of where I found it distracting was baby moses on the nile. The computer generated basket was overemphasized next to the flat background.
The story itself...hey, it's nothing new. Tee hee.
No really, they edited the story down and I liked it. Consolidated, and they presented it as such, so it's ok. Gave all the stories we need to understand what's up with Moses, and not really much else.
However, the coolest part of the whole freakin Bible, the swarm of locusts, the frogs n shit, was done SO fast. I mean, i understand they couldn't be too graphic about the plague and all that, but DAMN, that's the power of GOD, emphasize that a little, huh? However, the killing of the firstborn sons was done to perfection in my mind...with style, and not too harsh for the lil ones in the audience.
I thought this was a fine movie. I liked all the celebrity voices (except for stupid Sandra Bullock) The songs were not too distracting. I didn't really care for them, but it's Disney, it's expected of them. And they didn't intrude on the important elements.4 sporks. Not a masterpiece, not bad at all. A fine interpretation of a timeless story. And hey, at least they tore Jeff Goldblum away from those embarrasing iMac ads.
