The good: Bravo to Dreamworks for an entertaining, beautifully animated story about one of the Bible's favorite characters! A few privileges have been taken with the script, but these are additions that improve the story and sort of fill in the blanks. Giving Joseph a love interest from Potiphar's household whom he eventually marries when he is under Pharaoh completes the picture of Joseph as a husband and father when his brothers find him. Adding a scene that shows Potiphar sparing Joseph's life because his wife asks him to, confirms that Potiphar realized his wife was lying and that he knew Joseph was really innocent. These situations don't change the story, but instead makes sense for children who are trying to figure out what happens in those scenes. The dreams are illustrated like Van Gogh paintings, 3-D camera angles surround characters to create a more realistic shot. A half dozen songs are skillfully used to bridge plot situations, explain a character's action, illustrate time lapses and celebrate events. The painful situations of his brothers selling him into slavery, Potiphar's wife betraying him and the joyful reunion with his family are handled in a tender way that children will understand and learn from.Read more ›
Having Ben Affleck as the voice of Joseph makes him sound wooden and insincere as a lead character and the supporting cast don't add much weight to the film either.
As a kid's film it is mediocre with far better offerings from Disney and other Dreamworks films.
The one thing I did enjoy about the movie is that the dream sequences are beautifully animated and the backgrounds in these scenes are straight from a Vincent Van Gogh painting which was really quite impressive.
Overall though I was disappointed with 'Joseph' and felt the film given more time and care could have been as good as its predecessor.
Recommend - a good way of introducing the bible to small children.
Not a parr on Prince of Egypt by the same people.
Would do for a basic religious angle and that's seemingly what people appreciate but confuse it with a good film, not really one to hunt out.

This is not like the Prince of egypt as hoped. It's a cheap production and the songs are ridiculous. I'm a miracle child...Published 1 month ago by Naush
