Ben Hur (1959) is a beautiful, well-crafted production. This particular cinematic version is unique in that it will never be surpassed, regardless of how many new versions are in the horizon. The plot is powerfully unique, and the actors, who were selected meticulously, fit each of the characters perfectly. It is timeless.

Second greatest/finest movie ever made, the first being Lawrence of Arabia.

This film is known for the chariot race scene, but it's so much more meaningful than that. Chuck Heston sure was a presence. His performance is just perfect in this epic movie. The movie begins with what feels like an action story and ends in such a moving way with the crucifixion of Jesus. Easter is indeed the perfect time to watch such an impactful film - I can see why it has won so many awards.

I love this movie--in spite of the "Hallmark Christmas Card nativity scene" at the beginning.

The chariot race and maritime battle are my favorites. The symbolism of the crucifixion (Jesus blood spreading through the Earth in the rain) never fails to move me.

Stephen Boyd's performance as Masala should have won the Oscar.

If I could I would give this movie 6 stars.

Now 15% more epic! Man, this movie is long. Cool chariot race though.
