Critic Reviews for Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ
Ramon Novarro, who plays the part of Ben-Hur, is a sturdy, handsome young chap, with an excellent figure. His performance is all that one could wish, for he is fervent and earnest throughout.
Ben Hur is a picture for all times. No matter what happens to others, Ben Hur will remain, as the Bible remains.
The part of Ben Hur Is magnificently played by Ramon Navarro. In his hands the character shows a gradual and logical development, beginning with Judah's boyish bearing in the streets of Jerusalem, adopting a harder tone [as the film progresses].
There have been few attempts made to adapt masterpieces of history to the screen; very few of these attempts have been adequate. This cannot be said of Ben Hur.
The strangest thing:about a deliberately spectacular film is that, when'it i most spectacular, it ceases altogether to be personally dramatic.
Audience Reviews for Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ
I think I ought to re-watch this movie. I did just watch it last week, but it was so long I got bored and wasn't paying attention. I do remember a few good scenes, and the epic landscapes and enormous cast are really cool looking, but it's just so long. It really looks like an expensive picture, and the main cast does a good job, so I think it deserves a re-watch.
