Somehow I liked the animated version of this much better. Seemed more realistic. This was very long. I felt like I was wandering through the desert waiting for it to end.

The life of Moses, skipping most of the stuff in the Bible.

It's an awful movie, but it's a reasonably entertaining sort of awful, with plenty of opportunity for exclaiming "sweet fancy Moses" at the screen. Surprisingly, it took nearly three hours before I started to get bored. I can't figure out what audience it's intended for: it's too preachy for the non-religious, and too grossly inaccurate for the religious.
