Well-intentioned, ambitious - lack of budget holds it back
3 November 2016 | by vbanerjeeSee all my reviews

Easy viewing. A good film to have on when you want to enjoy and switch off from heavier daily troubles. Although not perfect, worth supporting from an all British cast, production value perspective.

It's hardly the budget of a Gladiator or a Kingdom of Heaven. But it aims to show an interesting array of characters and in some instances the uniqueness of an all British cast and a new Ben Hur story comes through. I thought Lucia plays a good role as the sister of the hero. Cassius is also an interesting character, albeit a little expected.

The idea of a washed up, reclusive Ben-Hur is an interesting concept and is an ambitious concept to take on. As mentioned, it is a well-intentioned different take on an existing story. It's definitely worth knowing when going into this film to manage expectations.

The film is inevitably held back by lack of budget but it does aim to deliver a good show, and the final action sequence along the beach definitely delivers some a beautiful backdrop to the final climax. I thought the music was good -- probably the part most reminiscent of a larger movie

It's a film you should go into with expectations clear -- definitely a B movies, with a small budget and is good for a Sunday afternoon viewing. worth keeping an open mind, there are some nuggets in there.
