More than simple entertainment
22 August 2016 | by (San Antonio, TX) – See all my reviews

It is apparent that those who have given this movie a poor rating are among those who do not understand the story of Ben Hur. This version, like those of the past was a depiction of a wealthy Jew who had everything; lost everything, and then through his faith regained far more than he ever had; faith, hope, love and mostly forgiveness. And it was beautifully depicted; kudos and many thanks to Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. I was particularly impressed that relatively unknown actors were chosen so that we could see the characters without the prejudgement that comes with more recognizable actors. Those who went to see this movie to find out who won a chariot race were as lost as Ben Hur was when at his lowest point. That is not a criticism; that just makes me sad.
