Overall Review:
2016 Ben-Hur is a remake of 1959’s classic version with the same name that won 11 Oscar awards. This American epic historical action drama is directed by Timur Bekmambetov. Cinematically, the film was a little disappointing. Director completely failed to maintain the pace which is very important for a historic drama movie. It was like 3 hour classic film condensed to 2 hours...
