Synopsis 3 stars out of 4 -- [A] masterpiece of condensation....This is a BEN-HUR of and for its time, but also a little better than its time, it turns out.[R]eally, it’s all about the story’s symbolic baptisms and Bekmambetov’s askew wide-angle compositions....Bekmambetov acquits himself nicely, offering up a loud and vicious circular chase, with point-of-view shots of people getting hit by chariots as armored Romans scamper around... -- Grade: B-The best thing about the reimagined BEN-HUR directed by Timur Bekmambetov from a screenplay by Keith Clarke and John Ridley, is that it delivers a contest as thunderously stirring as any action sequence from the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise.Morgan Freeman rides off with the movie, as Ilderim, the Arab horse breeder who befriends Judah and sponsors him in the race.In this adaptation of Lew Wallace's 1880 novel BEN-HUR: A TALE OF CHRIST (previously brought to the screen in 1925 and 1959), a Jewish prince (Jack Huston) spends years toiling in slavery after an old friend, now an officer in the Roman army occupying Jerusalem (Toby Kebbell), falsely accuses him of a crime. In time, he wins his freedom and competes against his betrayer in a violent chariot race, but an encounter with Jesus Christ (Rodrigo Santoro) teaches him the importance of mercy and compassion. This version of BEN-HUR was penned by Oscar-winning 12 YEARS A SLAVE scribe John Ridley, and directed by Timur Bekmambetov (WANTED, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER). Morgan Freeman co-stars.
