Unlike the Heston version of 1956, this film takes only around a quarter of its time to take you through the deliverance of the children of Israel.
One must remember that this is a silent film, but even then, a great film. Spectacular, even by today's standards.
The parting of the Red Sea, for example, is very creative.
By using water and jello movie makers achieved almost the same result as the 1956 version.
As far as the storyline is concerned, you will find it a little dry and a bit preachy but even this is enjoyable.
