Cole, Clayton. March Coughlan, Robert. November 16, Cowley, Robert What Ifs? Ben-Hur isn't the worst film of the year, but from a technical standpoint it certainly looks it.
Kristen Lopez. Very rarely does it try to impress us, or overwhelm us, shock us, move us. Austin Collins. Danny Leigh. Somehow, Ben-Hur feels longer and duller than its predecessor.
Tara Brady. What's wrong with the new Ben-Hur? How long have you got? This is a textbook case, step by agonising step, of how not to make a big-budget blockbuster.
Kevin Maher. It glosses over familiar scenes and motifs, going through the same old routine without bringing anything new to the table.
Allen Almachar. For a movie that wants so badly to be epic-regular swooping helicopter shots of long lines of people walking along some ridge or cliff pepper the film-Ben-Hur lacks any sense of majesty or grandeur.
Brent McKnight. Unfortunately, 'new interpretation' means changing the story dramatically and turning it into a slight rip off of Gladiator and we are not entertained.
Katie Hogan. A spectacle worthy of Cecil B. DeMille but with a story that is more grounded and layered with softer, nuanced, more human emotional performances that go beyond the visual and visceral experience.
Debbie Lynn Elias. Morgan Freeman as Ilderim commands respect and plays his role with an almost regal stature. Allison Rose. Ben-Hur suffers from many faith-based genre pitfalls -- on-the-nose dialogue, unsubtle 'cross' imagery and parallelism, saccharine endings.

The message boards confirm that. I recognize that there are some people that require constant action to keep their attention. If this is your case, than this movie is not for you, as it has a lot of dialogue.

Edit page. Clear your history. Judah Ben-Hur. While lost in thought, he notices a parade in the street and falls in with it. He notices that Judas Iscariot , one of Jesus' disciples, is leading the parade, and many of the temple priests and Roman soldiers are marching together.
They go to the olive grove of Gethsemane , and he sees Jesus walking out to meet the crowd. Understanding the betrayal, Ben-Hur is spotted by a priest who tries to take him into custody; he breaks away and flees.
When morning comes, Ben-Hur learns that the Jewish priests have tried Jesus before Pilate. Although originally acquitted, Jesus has been sentenced to crucifixion at the crowd's demand.
Ben-Hur is shocked at how his supporters have deserted Christ in his time of need. They head to Calvary , and Ben-Hur resigns himself to watch the crucifixion of Jesus.
The sky darkens. Ben-Hur offers Jesus wine vinegar to return Jesus' favor to him, and soon after that Jesus utters his last cry. Judah and his friends commit their lives to Jesus, realizing He was not an earthly king, but a heavenly King and a Savior of mankind.
Five years after the crucifixion, Ben-Hur and Esther have married and had children. The family lives in Misenum. Iras visits Esther and tells her she has killed Messala, discovering that the Romans were brutes.
She also implies that she will attempt suicide. After Esther tells Ben-Hur of the visit, he tries unsuccessfully to find Iras.
A Samaritan uprising in Judaea is harshly suppressed by Pontius Pilate, and he is ordered back to Rome a decade after authorizing the crucifixion of Jesus.
In the 10th year of Emperor Nero 's reign, Ben-Hur is staying with Simonides, whose business has been extremely successful. With Ben-Hur, the two men have given most of the fortunes to the church of Antioch.
Now, as an old man, Simonides has sold all his ships but one, and that one has returned for probably its final voyage. Learning that the Christians in Rome are suffering at the hands of Emperor Nero, Ben-Hur and his friends decide to help.
Ben-Hur, Esther, and Malluch sail to Rome, where they decided to build an underground church. It will survive through the ages and comes to be known as the Catacomb of Callixtus.
Ben-Hur is the romantic story of a fictional nobleman named Judah Ben-Hur, who tries to save his family from misfortune and restore honor to the family name, while earning the love of a modest Jewish woman named Esther.
It is also a tale of vengeance and spiritual forgiveness that includes themes of Christian redemption and God's benevolence through the compassion of strangers.
A popular theme with readers during Gilded Age America, when the novel was first published, was the idea of achieving prosperity through piety.
In Ben-Hur , this is portrayed through Judah's rise from poverty to great wealth, the challenges he faces to his virtuous nature, and the rich rewards he receives, both materially and spiritually, for his efforts.
Wallace's adventure story is told from the perspective of Judah Ben-Hur. Ben-Hur "maintains a respect for the underlying principles of Judaism and Christianity".
The Christian world would not tolerate a novel with Jesus Christ its hero, and I knew it He should not be present as an actor in any scene of my creation.
The giving a cup of water to Ben-Hur at the well near Nazareth is the only violation of this rule I would be religiously careful that every word He uttered should be a literal quotation from one of His sainted biographers.
Wallace only used dialogue from the King James Bible for Jesus's words. He also created realistic scenes involving Jesus and the main fictional character of Judah, and included a detailed physical description of the Christ, which was not typical of 19th-century biblical fiction.
The historical novel is filled with romantic and heroic action, including meticulously detailed and realistic descriptions of its landscapes and characters.
Wallace strove for accuracy in his descriptions, including several memorable action scenes, the most famous of which was the chariot race at Antioch.
By the time of Ben-Hur ' s publication in , Wallace had already published his first novel, The Fair God; or, The Last of the 'Tzins , and Commodus: An Historical Play that was never produced.
He went on to publish several more novels and biographies, including The Prince of India; or, Why Constantinople Fell , a biography of President Benjamin Harrison in , and The Wooing of Malkatoon , but Ben-Hur remained his most significant work and best-known novel.
Wallace cited one inspiration for Ben-Hur , recounting his life-changing journey and talk with Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll , a well-known agnostic and public speaker, whom he met on a train when the two were bound for Indianapolis on September 19, Ingersoll invited Wallace to join him in his railroad compartment during the trip.
The two men debated religious ideology, and Wallace left the discussion realizing how little he knew about Christianity. He became determined to do his own research to write about the history of Christ.
He developed the novel from his own exploration of the subject. The Dumas novel was based on the memoirs of an early 19th-century French shoemaker who was unjustly imprisoned and spent the rest of his life seeking revenge.
He explained in his autobiography that, while he was writing Ben-Hur , "the Count of Monte Cristo in his dungeon of stone was not more lost to the world.
Other writers have viewed Ben-Hur within the context of Wallace's own life. Historian Victor Davis Hanson argues that the novel drew from Wallace's experiences as a division commander during the American Civil War under General Ulysses S.
Hanson compares Wallace's real-life experience in battle, battle tactics, combat leadership, and jealousies among American Civil War military commanders to those of Wallace's fictional character of Judah, whose unintentional injury to a high-ranking military commander leads to further tragedy and suffering for the Ben-Hur family.
Wallace made some controversial command decisions , and he delayed in arriving on the battlefield during the first day of the battle of Shiloh , when Grant's Union army sustained heavy casualties.
This created a furor in the North, damaged Wallace's military reputation, and drew accusations of incompetence. John Swansburg, deputy editor of Slate , suggests that the chariot race between the characters of Judah and Messala may have been based on a horse race which Wallace reportedly ran and won against Grant some time after the battle of Shiloh.
Farrand Tuttle Jr. The event may have been a Wallace family legend, but the novel which includes the action-packed chariot race made Wallace a wealthy man and established his reputation as a famous author and sought-after speaker.
Wallace was determined to make the novel historically accurate and did extensive research on the Middle East that related to the time period covered in his novel.
However, he did not travel to Rome or the Holy Land until after its publication. To establish an authentic background for his story, Wallace gathered references on Roman history, as well as the geography, culture, language, customs, architecture, and daily life in the ancient world from libraries across the United States.
He also studied the Bible. Wallace intended to identify the plants, birds, names, architectural practices, and other details.
He later wrote: "I examined catalogues of books and maps, and sent for everything likely to be useful. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but for me, the film ends when the relationship between Judah and Messala is at its climax.
Some things just don't translate to film. Anyways, Ben-Hur is every bit as impressive now as it has been for decades. To see the crew's clever use of miniatures in action scenes, seamless green screen work, and a grand scale chariot race makes it one of the most important and influential works of art in the 20th century.
It's something you'd have a hard time denying. So although I don't think the last 40 minutes of the film are necessary, I also won't deny the influence the entire film had on cinema.
Thomas D Super Reviewer. Jan 23, The definition of a classic epic film, Ben-Hur is a film that well over 50 years later still packs a punch. The winner of 11 Oscars, Ben-Hur stands the test of time as extremely well-executed, strongly acted, and enthralling in both its scope and action sequences.
The film follows a wealthy Jewish prince, at the time of Jesus, who finds himself at odds with the Roman Empire. Ben-Hur embodies the classical three-act story structure, and does so in an admirable way.
Too many modern films rush the acts, and fail to fully elaborate on their story. At over 3. The story feels organic to itself, we are left to see events unfold in a natural way.
Thus the film has a powerful progression, and is complete in its acts. It doesn't feel as if its building to one point, so much as its building to its theme, a sure sign of a maturely rendered film.
The vast scope of Ben-Hur is awe-inspiring. Its world building is grand, realistic, and meticulous in its detail.
In fact, it surpasses many modern sword and sandal epics of today. This is combined with strong cinematography, and laudable performances.
Charlton Heston feels perfect for the role, possessing the physical presence necessary to command a scene. He is matched well by a supporting cast including Stephen Boyd, who excel with their dialogue.
No one seems unmatched, its host of interesting characters populate the screen, giving texture to the film's ambitious narrative. The sense of flow is also impeccable for most of the film, keeping a kinetic energy about itself.
Such a combination is reminiscent of other brilliant Epics of its era, notably Lawrence of Arabia. It's the film's action sequences that, by far, separate Ben-Hur from other epics, and place it among the best of its era and, perhaps, among the best grand epics ever.
The battles feel not only large, but are filmed with long, continuous shots, with wide angle lenses. We see the vast array of action unfold not in numerous close-up shots, like films of today, but in one wide context, which makes the scenes all the more powerful.
The chariot scene is a masterpiece of cinema, breathtaking, and yet never insisting upon itself. This is true of the naval battle preceding it as well, rivaling any similar scene of today.
In the end, Ben-Hur simply feels large. The biblical backdrop of the film is used to good effect, and represents an interesting parallel story. The grand action sequences, the character arcs, all of it make for an experience that feels complete, albeit long.
The film isn't flawless, however, with some bland female performances, and a third act which overstays its welcome, especially in the last few scenes.
Still, it's a spectacle, to be sure, and well befitting of its status. Jeffrey M Super Reviewer.
