  • You already know his name.

    August 19th, 2016

    Last time I watched the Ben-Hur with Charlton Heston the thought did not cross my mind that perhaps the world needed another version of the story directed by the guy who brought us Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and that weird movie where they make bullets bend. . Anyway, the Heston version is one of my favorite movies. I saw it when I was 8 and ...

  • Another Hollywood remake...

    August 19th, 2016

    Hollywood remakes. For every Ocean's 11, there's 10 Willy Wonkas. So here we are saddled with another previously untouchable classic getting a slickly made, soulless studio remake. But is it fair to judge it just because it's a remake? Or does it succeed on its own merits? . I love the William Wyler '59 original classic, and watch it often. The qu...

  • Typical Faith-Based Market Film.

    September 2nd, 2016

    I have sympathy for younger audiences who will probably never experience being mesmerized by a movie. As a 10-year-old in 1959, 'Ben-Hur' was an experience on the movie screen.. Faith-based movies are made by cash grabbers who know they have a market. At 100 million, it appears most of the money and time was put into CGI effects. Both the galley s...

  • Seriously ?

    September 2nd, 2016

    Well, maybe its worth a 4 …. 4,5 if I had lots to drink, got a raise and was married to a Billionaire. Honestly, this is some of the worst that has come out of the worst. The start sequence just makes you want to leave the Theater right away, burn it to the ground and never come back. Its like a cheap TV show with bad lines and people who cant ta...

  • Bad movie

    August 30th, 2016

    I watched the original Ben-Hur and liked it very much, this time I was very excited going to the theater hoping for at least a 7 stars movie. I ended up leaving with disbelief why there is such a lame move in every aspect of it except the clothing and beautiful scenes. In short, they put Morgan Freeman in cameo appearance to lure moviegoer, he jus...

  • And the Oscar for the greatest screw up in a motion picture

    September 9th, 2016

    What a dreadful effort, it took a lot of creativity for this film to be this bad. The frustrating thing they didn't even have to take a chance, the book is over a 150 years old, there was a blockbuster stage show and 2 blockbuster films, all they had to do was minorly tweak the original book, or use one of the smash-hit films as a guide. I venture...

  • actually pretty good

    August 22nd, 2016

    I wasn't really going to write a review but when I saw all the hate this movie was getting -I couldn't help myself and thought that this movie deserved some justice... I can understand that fans of the original movie aren't pleased- I guess they feel like seeing a book they really like getting butchered on screen- but in this case I don't think th...

  • A failure of a Hollywood blockbuster

    August 30th, 2016

    The story of Ben-Hur is back on the big screen this time directed by Timur Bekmambetov starring Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell and Morgan Freeman. The movie is set in Jerusalem and tells the story of a prince who goes by the name of Judah Ben-Hur. Judah's adopted brother Messala Severus is part of the Roman army that occupies the city. Both brothers ha...

  • I Can Never Get My Two Hours Back

    September 12th, 2016

    Where do I begin with such a deplorable movie? Let's start with cinematography. The vast majority of the scenes are filmed in a frustrating haze of darkness; the excessive use of close-ups is nauseating; and, worst of all, the camera is constantly jerking throughout the film, which left me with a splitting headache when I left the theater.. When c...

  • worst Life of Brian parody ever

    September 8th, 2016

    i had the misfortune of sitting through this chariot wreck a few days ago. only thing that kept me going was the obviously unfunny attempts to parody the life of brian. . in the scene where the Roman general was grilling Brian (Ben Hur), i expected him to say 'thow him to the fwoor centurion' and in the crucifixion scene i wanted them to sing 'alw...
