Review by anonymous (posted on 5-May-2006)
ABSOLUTELY, THE BEST FILM
EVER PRODUCED! A real cast of thousands; not computer generated.
Starring a lead actor with real character and not just an actor
portraying a character. Charlton Heston is the best of the best and
this role was practically made around him. Supported by a cast that did
well augmenting Heston's commanding role. I recommend that everyone
should watch this movie at least once a month for the rest of their
lives....it's that good! Ofter overlooked is the high CALIBER (thank
you Mr. Heston, NRA president) of subtle humor in this movie. Who could
have thought that Moses, Moses would be so funny. BEHOLD HIS MIGHTY
HANDS.....Mr. Heston's that is!
Do you know something we don't?
