Overall Review:
Allied is directed by Robert Zemeckis & stars Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. Love and betrayal are the themes of this sweeping love story in which star power and intrigue keep us on tenterhooks throughout. To begin the first half of the movie is not too bad. It shows how the main characters meet and react to each other with the difficult task ahead of them...

Plot:
The epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother, an officer in the Roman army. After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption.

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...
