A wild stallion is captured by humans and slowly loses the will to resist training, yet, throughout his struggles for freedom, the stallion refuses to let go of the hope of one day returning home to his herd.
The sailor of legend is framed by the goddess Eris for the theft of the Book of Peace, and must travel to her realm at the end of the world to retrieve it and save the life of his childhood friend Prince Proteus.
This is the extraordinary tale of two brothers named Ramses II and Moses, one born of royal blood, and one an orphan with a secret past. Growing up the best of friends, they share a strong bond of free-spirited youth and good-natured rivalry. But the truth will ultimately set them at odds, as one becomes the ruler of the most powerful empire on Earth, and the other the chosen leader of his people. Their final confrontation will forever change their lives and the world.Written by

Changes were made to the story to make it work as an animated feature. Here is a short list of differences between the movie and the Biblical account of the Exodus.
1. Moses was adopted by Pharaoh's daughter, not his wife.
2. Moses murdered the Egyptian slave master, and even tried to hide his body. He did not kill him by accident.
3. Aaron supported Moses from the beginning, and even helped perform some of the miracles of God. Aaron did not doubt Moses.
4. It was Aaron who turned his staff into a snake, and turned the water of the Nile to blood, not Moses. See more »
During Moses's nightmare, Miriam is wearing pink (like she does throughout the rest of the film). When they arrive at the water's edge and the adult Moses sees his mother put his baby counterpart in the basket, Miriam is wearing orange. See more »
Mud... Sand... Water... Straw. Faster! Mud... and lift... sand... and pull... water... and raise up! Straw... Faster!
With the sting of the whip on my shoulder, with the salt of my sweat on my brow... Elohim, God on high, can you hear your people cry? Help us now, this dark hour... Deliver us, hear our call, deliver us, Lord of all! Remember us, here in this burning sand! Deliver us, there's a land you promised us! Deliver us to the promised land!

At the end of the closing credits, there are verses from religious texts - the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and the Koran - in praise of Moses. See more »
Wonderful animated film (it's not a cartoon... :-) )
Songs were wonderfully inspiring. They contributed to the flavour of the movie instead of being distracting. They continued to tell the story instead of being used strictly for entertainment purposes. No hokey happy 'Disney' songs which would have completely ruined the atmosphere.
Yaayy! It got the PG rating it needed! Parents need to be aware that their children will have questions, that this is NOT a happy-go-lucky Disney cartoon. It is a though provoking, question raising Dreamworks animation that was wonderfully done. Obviously not a 100% accurate retelling of the story in Exodus, but it's a feature film, not a bible study class. :-) Although there are some pretty good study guides for those that want to use it as such.
So.. Please DO let your children see it, but give them a little background first. Tell them the basic story behind it. And ENJOY!
