This was a great and modern retelling! Would love to see a remake of Citizen Kane starring Zac Efron.

as several reviewers have already commented, very bland, acting was mediocre; not sure why you would try to remake a classic such as this. don't waste your money for this at the theaters, just buy the re-digitized version on blu-ray

Nowhere close to the original Ben Hur with Charlton Heston and Stephen Boyd. The casting is horrible and the acting mediocre. Never try an remake an original which won the most Oscar awards during its time. Really disappointed with this one.

Epic story of love and hate. Love wins again.

Deduct the questionable ratings of "5 stars" and the rating for Ben Hur drops to 1.6 stars. Personally, that is a more accurate rating. Have to really wonder - the movie is not even out yet and 12 ratings at 5 stars???????

I saw this movie at a screening. Very poor. To me, the 3-D was bad. My friend did not like the movie either. Nice people acting, but poor acting. I would not pay for tickets to go, and cannot believe ratings of "incredible" and "best movie ever".

I have to agree with the person who said, "bland story." And the 6 people on the elevator at the theater who all saw the movie, had the same opinion. One even said, "a piece of junk." Just in case you are wondering how I saw the movie, I got free tickets to a screening in Vancouver. Very disappointing. I am glad I had free tickets, as spending hard earned money on this movie would have been a bust.

Other than the 3D effects and computer generated chariot races the movie is very bland. Ben Hur with Charlton Heston that came out in 1959 is still the best Ben Hur ever made.
