Ben-Hur 1959

From Amazon: After his boyhood friend Messala's fanatic loyalty to Rome makes him a powerful enemy, Judah Ben-Hur is found guilty of an attempted murder he did not commit. His family is banished and he is enslaved on a warship. Through his ferocity in a raging sea battle, he is able to escape and become a horse trainer. To exact his revenge, Ben-Hur decides to compete against Messala in the Roman chariot races. They race, locked in a battle to the death. Barely surviving, Ben-Hur forsakes the sword for Christ and finally finds redemption. Winner of a record 11 Academy Award, including Best Picture and Actor (Charlton Heston). (read more)

Uh. Sorry, folks.

I know that Ben-Hur is considered by many to be an all-time classic, and everything, but, hey, aside from the chariot race (which was magnificently done), this dry-as-dust picture pushed the boundaries of monotony just a little too far for this reviewer with its 3.5 hour running time.

Yeah. It sure...

Ben-Hur Movie Review by Jarrod (3/3/2008)

'Ben-Hur' is one of the richest and grandest of all Hollywood epics, and certainly was the most successful film William Wyler ever made, though not his best, that honor would go to The Best Years of Our Lives. It won 11 Oscars, a record since duplicated by Titanic and Return of the King. It features Charlton Heston in...

Ben-Hur Movie Review by Valerie (12/16/2006)

Ben-Hur is one of the best films ever made, in every way, the story is breathtaking, the acting is superb and the action is timeless.

This 1959 film doesn't feel dated at all, it's definitely timeless, and every time is just as amazing as the last time you watched it.

Charlton Heston stars as Judah Ben-Hur, a man...
