All Day To See The Race!

by mehaul on Mar 9, 2010

TITLE: Ben Hur GENRE: Biblical Epic CAST: Charlton Heston, Stephen Boyd, Haya Harareet, Jack Hawkins, Hugh Griffith and Sam Jaffe PLOT: Re-union of boyhood friends does not go well at all. One has become a Roman ruler in Judea and the other is a prosperous Hebrew, our hero, Judah Ben Hur. Their conflict forces the Roman Massala(Boyd) to exile Hur into galley rowing slavery. During a sea battle, Hur saves the life of the Roman Consul and is rewarded by eventually becoming the adopted son of the Consul. Returning to Judea for revenge, we pass through the sport of the era, Chariot racing. Hur had become one of Rome city's most celebrated drivers; while in Judea, Massala is the eastern Empire's best, The duel in the Chariot race is acknowledged as a few of the most suspenseful moments in Hollywood history. Hur renounces Rome, seeks his family out, gets to see Jesus perform miracles and die. The Christ story part of this is central yet is played down only to be resurrected when the other story stumbles. RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 7 of 10; at almost 4 hours (and it'll be longer than that if you do the DVD extras), you need to sit through poor character development which is the big drawback. The rest of the film is to be as expected from such a huge budget blockbuster. The movie's music score, the costume, the sets and stunts are all top notch. DVD BONUSES: Heston comments on the making in a parallel track. The filmography of several actors is given ADDED NOTES: This movie is all about the chariot race. Heston (and Boyd) had to join the ranks of less than a dozen skilled drivers of four horse chariots in the world. He even, he says, had to work as an extra at times when the chariots were shown at range and drivers were needed. (I think I saw him once or twice as the driver during some horse practice run scenes. Yes, this battle with horses is worth watching the movie for (But if that's all you want to see, It's just after the intermission on side 2)

Fantastic epic!

by Trektark on May 19, 2009

This is one of the greatest epic films ever made! My whole family enjoyed it and we are talking about children who ranged in age from 8 to 15 the first time we watched it! It is still a family favorite! The story is one for the ages with a truly inspirational message!

Classic Delight

by fiddler on Jan 25, 2009

We watched this movie about twice a year in Latin class (wow, I've probably watched this 10 times) and never does it hit us as boring. It takes a classic/historical time period and helps its viewers empathize and understand the struggles of the time. The friendship of Juda and Messala, family loyalty, clashes among populations, hope in spirituality and faith, etc... it's just an eye-opening adventure.
