Interesting match up of the Moses movies. "Commandments" is a certified Hollywood masterpiece and Heston was iconic in the role, but I have to say that "Prince of Egypt" was also quite enjoyable while being faithful to the source material.
I agree with about both of these movies. I really like them both but I grew up with Ten Commandments so I have to give the edge to the Heston epic!
Prince of Egypt really does some nice things with the story, especially between Moses and Rameses, but I could have done without most of the songs. Ten Commandments is epic, and a classic, but just a bit long for my tastes. Still going with the one that airs on network TV every year.
Prince of Egypt for better pacing and conflict
Prince of Egypt
Ten Commandments only mentions 9/12 of the Plagues whereas The Prince of Egypt shows all and uses the first 11 as the backdrop for its most kick-ass song. That's enough for it to win in my book.

Yul Breezy and that dialogue? Game over, man.
