The Hollywood Reporter

Cecil B. DeMille‘s The Ten Commandments is, in many ways, the summit of screen achievement. It is not just a great and powerful motion picture, it is also a new human experience.

New York Daily News

Cecil B. DeMille is a wonderful producer-director who can still astonish an audience after his 50 years in the film business.

Decent Films

Cecil B. DeMille's last and arguably greatest film, 'The Ten Commandments' is like an artifact of an earlier era, with something of the world of silent film about it.

IMDb

This is an all-time classic, which probably deserves more attention that it has got.

AllMovie

The Ten Commandments was the final film in the five-decade career of legendary producer/director Cecil B. DeMille and, despite its flaws, it remains a primary example of combining high production values and epic scope for a box-office blockbuster.

Common Sense Media

If you can get past the melodrama and the length of the movie, it's worth experiencing this elaborate retelling of a great story.

Rotten Tomatoes

Cecil B. DeMille set out not just to be entertaining but to do as much justice to the Moses saga as he could, with as much awe and pomp and grandeur as the Fifties studio system could muster. He succeeded spectacularly.
