terrific animated film that the whole family should enjoy, 8 April 2007
Author: disdressed12 from Canada

this is the only version of Ben Hur that i have seen so far,so i can't compare it to other versions.i will say i really enjoyed this animated's a combination of traditional and 3d animation.visually it is very stunning.the details are very rich vivid.the movie clocks in at less than 90 minutes,but there is a lot jammed into that time.Charlton Heston,who played Ben Hur in the 1950's version is back as the voice of Ben i watched the end credits,i noticed that many voice actors portrayed several different characters.i found this amazing,as the characters each had their own distinct sound.i would not have known this if i hadn't watched the end me,this is a testament to the skill of the performers.this movie is very family friendly,with just one or two scenes that may be a bit intense for young children,so parents may want to preview the movie first before their little ones watch it.this is a great movie overall in my opinion,and well worth rating is 10/10 for the animated version of "Ben Hur".
