Ben-Hur, the 1959 Charlton Heston classic, of the same name, which won 11 Oscars, is getting a remake, or rather re-adaptation of the novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. The original Ben-Hur is a historical epic that spans more than three hours and is one of the best film epics of all-time. If you are a cinefile, you should watch the original. On the other hand, this new Ben-Hur looks like a typical Roman era revenge tale. The CGI is subpar, the set design appears adequate, and the casting is fine I suppose. If this wasn't titled Ben-Hur, there would be nothing really to say about the film. But this is a remake of a classic, so it is impossible not to compare. It just seems unnecessary and pointless and all around meh. What do you think? Please comment below and check back soon for more movie reviews!
