I might be a little generous with my score because of the super low expectations I had going in. The cast was decent. The story was as well. It did feel a bit generic and the CGI was pretty bad.
Wow! This was the first time I’ve ever seen Ben-Hur. I have to say this was a very impressive movie.
The chariot race. That is what this movie is very well known for. Even before seeing this movie, I’ve heard about the chariot race. It was brutal. And it really makes me wonder how they did it. That was excellent. Nothing was held back in this as I even winced several times during this part of the movie. Excellent!
Intelligent, fun and highly entertaining. And let’s not forget, unpredictable. The hilarious exchange between Amy Acker, Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins was hilarious and perfect. The last third of the movie was completely bonkers. Great cast from top to bottom, super fun story and some decent amount of tension mixed with laughs.
