This 2016 version of the story of Judah Ben-Hur and his troubled life during Biblical times has a much more manageable time frame at 2 hours than the 4 hour version with Charlton Heston released in 1959. It catches the essence of the story, but does not encompass the dramatic fullness of the original. Watch the 1959 version if you have the time, otherwise the 2016 version will do. Actually the book Ben-Hur: a tale of the Christ by Lew Wallace is still my first choice.
