|A sad compromise. Nov 19, 2005|
|This is a very, very strange rendering of the famous Bible story. Can't say I'm really a fan of the vindictive, punishing, and violent Old Testament God, but whatever you think of the philosophy, you've got to admit the stories from the book of Numbers are quite compelling and dramatic. Why bother doing them, if you're not going to exploit the anger, vengeance, and sensuality inherent in the original pieces? DeMille's film, for all its gaudy eroticism and ham-fisted spectacle, at least honored the sensibilities and the grandeur of this story of sex and revenge. This version was so watered down that the climax (poorly rendered and badly drawn) had no impact. Clumsy animation (which looks not at all like the image on the box) and ill-conceived musical numbers practically sink this kid-friendly version of a powerful story. Too bad the filmmakers didn't trust their young audiences enough to know that children are capable of assimilating frightening imagery and messages: even "The Wizard of Oz" had some intense and disturbing scenes. This story could have used some. Charlton Heston's live action intro seems superfluous and bothersome. For a successful animated rendering of these Bible stories, I'd reccommend "The Prince of Egypt" or "Joseph, King of Dreams". They're great examples of how this kind of thing can (and should) be done. This was a sadly wasted opportunity, and it's especially discouraging because this sweeping Biblical story was so well suited to the exaggerations and flourishes of the cartoon medium. Alas.|
