An amazing classic epic. With some of cinema’s most iconic moments. Wonderful sets and costumes.

A memorable epic. Watch it at least once despite it feeling like a chore due to the length.
Really great action set pieces that are surrounded by long stretches of a pretty boring movie

Definitely on the longer side, but that’s kinda what makes this so epic. The theme about the fleeting nature of revenge is so beautiful.
There may be no greater technological feat in film that Ben-Hur’s chariot race. The scope of the film is absolutely fantastic.
Amazing epic, completely changed my view on life.
