benhur7/10
It is extremely difficult to remake movies, let alone iconic films that are so treasured. Ben-Hur gets a make over thanks to advances in technology and narration by Morgan Freeman. The characters all play their parts admirably but it is hard not to compare the two films. For those who have never seen the original, you will be introduced to it and all its glory, while others will question why it was ever remade at all.
