Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Ben Hur is a fine. I’ve seen both better and worse films this year. But whilst I have no real affection to the original, you cant argue that the cast was pretty outstanding. A few days since I watched this modern retooling of Ben Hur I cant remember a single actor from the film, or for that matter much more than the final chariot race. So totally forgettable in the whole but not the worst way to pass two hours.
Best Bit: Chariots!
