      The Ten Commandments

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Bombastic and occasionally silly but extravagantly entertaining, Cecil B. DeMille's all-star spectacular is a muscular retelling of the great Bible story.

      SMH Staff Sydney Morning Herald It is all a grandly unrestrained act of regression to the infantile days of the cinema, which DeMille seems never to have outgrown. Nov 17, 2021 Full Review James Powers Hollywood Reporter There is no other picture like it. There will be none. If it could be summed up in a word, the word would be sublime. And the man responsible for that, when all is said and done is Cecil B. DeMille. Apr 7, 2015 Full Review Kate Cameron New York Daily News DeMille's direction of the action is superb and the various roles are played with feeling by a large and competent cast, headed by Charlton Heston. Rated: 5/5 Dec 10, 2014 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault Great fun. This lovably corny Biblical epic is always entertaining no matter when you tune in on Easter night. Rated: A- Nov 29, 2022 Full Review Dilys Powell Sunday Times (UK) The whole experience (with an interval) lasts roughly four hours. I am afraid that long before the time was up I was silently imploring Mr. DeMille to let his people go. Aug 9, 2022 Full Review Bill Chambers Film Freak Central ...De Mille places each actor and drapes each Edith Head gown with such fastidious pride it's as if the hands of history, if not God himself, were responsible. Rated: 3.5/4 Mar 3, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

The first “blockbuster” film to me with all its spectacle. The parting of the Red Sea is still one of the most jaw-dropping scene in cinema to me.
