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.

Immortal story about Jewish condemned to slave galley, now as cartoon movie
6 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

This cartoon version of renowned story during the time of Christ which was filmed several times, concerning on a Jewish named Ben-Hur results to be an agreeable movie. It stars in a prologue and epilogue narrated by Charlton Heston.He explains about numerous Lee Wallace's Ben Hur adaptations, as stage version , silent classic(1926) by Fred Niblo with Ramon Novarro and of course big budget version by William Wyler that won a record of 11 Oscars and was the most expensive picture of its time , being one of the greatest movies of all history.

The story is well known, a wealthy Jewish nobleman Ben Hur and his confrontation to military Messala(role played in Wyler version by Stephen Boyd), though they were childhood friends. When happen a distress Ben Hur incurs the hostility his previous friend and is condemned to galley slavery, and his family is sent to prison during several years into a room completely locked.When he's in a galleon as slave rower saves to Quinto Arrio(Jack Hawkins in the Oscarized adaptation)who appointed him as heir.He returns Palestina where his mother Miriam and sister Tizrah(roles performed in classic version by Martha Scott and Cathy O'Donnell respectively) are prisoned at Antonia fortress. This classic tale is added religious issues about Jesus life, as are described the pilgrimage to Cafarnaum where Jesus takes disciples, his apostles,the treason by Judas, crucifixion and resurrection . The movie relies on traditional animation , only is partially made by computer generator the battle ships and a breathtaking chariot races. The dialogue, animated images, photography , evocative musical score combine to cast a spellbinding animation movie, though contains some gaps and the animation is imperfect. This motion animated picture is professionally directed by Bill Kowalchuk.
