Here’s a Really Good Case That ‘The Prince of Egypt’ Is an Under-Appreciated Masterpiece
As millennials, we've had the privilege of enjoying an overabundance of great movies. Disney has ruled the movie market for most of our lives. Movies like Toy Story, Mulan and The Lion King dominated the 1990s. Quite frankly, there is no real competition, but every now and then, a non-Disney company will release an animated film that was extraordinary. The Prince of Egypt is one of the greatest animated movies of all time. After being released in 1998, the film grossed over $200 million and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for "When You Believe" by Hans Zimmer. This movie was iconic, and now a video has been put together reminding us all why this movie is the best!
NowhereLad says: "The tragedy of Rameses' character is one that is lost on many people. His heart hardens by the power of God. He cannot and will not secede to His will, this foreign entity, that has stolen his closest relationship and threatened the foundations of his ancestry and kingdom. Listen to him cry out his brother's name in anguish during the final moments of the film. You feel a small sense of pity for the curious and fun-loving child raised into superiority and greed."
Holy smokes. That's a take!
