During the first century A.D., Judah Ben-Hur is a young Hebrew prince thrown into slavery by the Romans after a tragic accident, who wins his way back to his home and a family on a heroic adventure of discovery. Judah's love for a beautiful slave girl is threatened by the bitter conflict dividing two former freinds, and his triumph is set against the backdrop of the historic struggle between a captive people and a mighty empire. From an exciting sea battle and a thundering chariot race to the dramatic events surrounding the life and death of Christ, this is an epic tale of love, redemption, foregiveness and faith to captivate viewers of all ages.

A great family film
31 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I like about this movie after watching it on the Trinity Broadcast Network. It was a good movie to watch, I learned everything about this movie. The story of a Hebrew Prince, the Charriot Race, his mother and sister turning into lepers. And also about Jesus, the Messiah. The animation is very good. The movie also starred Charlton Heston,the voice of Ben Hur. Also famous for the 1956 motion picture"The Ten Commandments". The movie also featured your favorite voice cast famous for Beast Wars, Gundam Wing, and others. So in closing to this review. Do see it the next time it comes on Television. You will see what I mean.
