About the Movie

BEN-HUR is the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army.

After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption. Based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. Also starring Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The last of the summer's movie epics is a digitalized eyesore hobbled in every department by staggering incompetence. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 20, 2016

Rotten: Something soulless and empty, with all the mystery and grandeur of the tale just gone. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 21, 2016

Rotten: An amateurish effort that boasts direct-to-video characteristics, the latest version disappoints in almost every production aspect. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Aug 21, 2016

Rotten: Though it seems unlikely to dislodge William Wyler's 1959 version, its story of a Judean prince (Jack Huston) who keeps running into Jesus of Nazareth (Rodrigo Santoro) offers plenty of action and spectacle. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Aug 25, 2016

Ben Hur

Awesome movie. Gotta see it. Great movie!!!

Great movie.

I loved this movie. Moved my heart. And I liked the how the story of Christ was put in so well. Different than 1st but better in some ways.

From skeptic to fan!

I was very skeptical of another Hollywood remake, but this movie was amazing. The actors were fantastically cast, the soundtrack beautifully chosen and some of the scenes were legitimately shocking in their large scope. The chariot race ends up being such an epic thrill to see! Amazing work! I preordered today and plan on seeing it again in the theater.
