Ben-Hur Review - The Star

The Star: Was there a hole in the universe only another Ben-Hur remake could fill?

Probably not, but here we are. And while the climactic chariot race comes close to delivering the same level of hoof-pounding thrills that helped make William Wyler’s 1959 version an Oscar-sweeping classic, this sappy retread makes audiences endure a lot of mediocrity to get there.

The story is too old to be commented.
