A well-intentioned misfire featuring 3-D CGI animation that recalls lesser vidgames of the mid-1990s.

Brought to you by the director of such classics as Buzby and the Grumble Bees and the producer of Charlton Heston Presents the Bible, Commandments will struggle to entertain even the least discerning five-year-old. Even last year's schlocky horror The Reaping has more of a theological statement to make than this biography of Moses.

For those who recall those old Classics Illustrated comics of the 1940s and ’50s--and even for those who don’t--there’s an endearing, earnest quality to The Ten Commandments that transcends its star-studded cast and computer-generated animation.

The panoramic backgrounds have a silky beauty, but the characters are cheaply rendered with doll faces, enlarged musculature, tiny joints, and clunky movement. It's like watching Max Headroom lead his people out of Egypt.
