|The Ten Commandments||computer addict 05/23/2012 |
| The Ten Commandments is a must see movie. The scenery, the camera shots, the music, especially, the miracle of God parting the sea so that Israel could cross over to Canaan and the scene where Moses communes with God on the mountain. There are miracles of the water turning into blood, the hail storm, God's wrath being poured out on the wicked . Vincent Price does a scene where he ties Joshua and then whips him. The Israelites leaving Egypt is another good scene. All of the actors and actresses in the movie do very well with their parts. Cecil B. DeMille was the director of the picture and his voice is heard throughout the movie. This movie is one that you have to see as it is that good.|
