A DreamWorks SKG animated drama depicting the story of
Moses. Voices of Val Kilmer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Goldblum, Danny
Glover and James Woods.
SEX/NUDITY 1 - A kiss on the cheek. Most of the men are dressed only in
loincloths. In one scene, we see a man being showered and vigorously scrubbed by several
women; when they're finished, he covers his groin with a towel.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Soldiers shove and whip men; we see scars on some men's
backs. A man is whipped repeatedly. A soldier is pushed off a scaffold, hits the ground
and dies. A few times we see soldiers pushing women. Soldiers take babies from their
mothers and throw them into the sea where two alligators with open mouths are waiting;
several times during the movie we see a mural depicting this scene. Hippos snap their
teeth and wrestle in the water, nearly overturning a basket carrying a baby; also, an
alligator nearly eats the basket. A "tornado" of fire keeps knife-wielding
soldiers from massacring a group of people; later, we see the soldiers swept away and
drowned by rushing water. A man is buried up to his hair in sand during a wind storm; a
camel bites a chunk of his hair and pulls him out of the sand, then spits water on his
face. Two men drive their chariots recklessly; they nearly knock a man off a scaffold.
Some men are nearly hit by a large falling stone. A woman tries to bite a man's finger. A
man slaps a woman. We see a man, a woman and two animals tied up. A woman sprawls into a
puddle. A snake eats two other snakes. People brush blood on their doors. We see a boy run
into a house, fall down (we see his limp arm through the doorway) and die. A sea turns
into blood. Swarms of bugs crawl on and fly around a city's residents. We see people
with pink spots all over their bodies (presumably sores). Also, the tone of God's
threatening voice is at times quite scary.
