This new animated adaptation of Ben Hur, has but one thing to recommend, namely the voice of Charlton Heston. It is delightful to hear his distinguished voice as he reprises his oscar winning role.
The animation is rather on the crude side by disney standards but as long as you don't watch this expecting too much you won't be dissapointed. Having a running length of 75 mins however liberties have to be taken with the plot as it progresses quickly from scene to scene, although it is supposed to be the most faithful version of Lew Wallace's tale to date.
Highlights include the sea battle and ofcourse the chariot race sequence which are enhanced through cgi but yet again they are only short segments.
Of the other voice actors none are distinguished as already commented upon by the above reviewer, but that doesn't matter much as Heston carries the movie and makes it more accesible for a young audience. It is particularly nice to see the role of Christ expanded upon from what we see of him in previous versions.
DVD features though few are nice as we see heston talking behind the scenes although he looks extremely unwell and frail.
Over all this new animated tale is a small treat for fans of Heston and the story of Ben Hur.

My seven year old son LOVES this film! Yes, it is animated (a cartoon) all the better as far as he's concerned. I bought this on a whim a couple of years ago. He watched it over 20 times right away, and wanted his best friends to see it and get whatever boys get out of film like this. It isn't annoying for me to hear it over and over again because of Heston's wonderful voice. The story line is beautiful as well. Think for yourself on this one. This is a classic tale. It was written by someone who wittnessed and fought in the Civil War of the USA. It's put into a package that speaks to a child. This product deserves an audience. And who knows, if people show the interest, maybe Disney will feel it's worthy of his attention.

The latest film version of BEN HUR is an animated retelling that emphasizes the novel's original subtitle: A Tale of the Christ.
Charlton Heston reprises his Oscar© winning 1959 film role as the voice of Ben (and also narrator).
Sadly, the animation is second rate and nowhere near the quality of "Prince of Egypt." The voice work is not particularly imaginative with the exception of Heston who is more emotional and worldly wise than the blandly drawn young hero. Still, there's an admirable bravery to the provocative enterprise; after all, it's about a Jew on the road to revenge who stumbles across a forgiving Christ. How radical is that?
Limited extras include brief statements from a somewhat haunted looking Heston who, oddly, speaks almost without emotion or expression.

Wow! Even if you have little experience with silent movies, even if you erroneously believe that the 1959 Charlton Heston version of this movie surpasses all, you must see this film. It is a cinematic masterpiece, sumptuously photographed, faithful to Lew Wallace's novel and many scenes will quite simply knock your socks off.
Ramon Novarro is handsome, boyish and enchanting as Judah Ben-Hur. His performance is infinitely beyond anything Heston is capable of delivering. He plays Ben-Hur as the character was presented in the novel, devoid of ths histrionics, anger and over-acting which plagued the remake. Francis Bushman does overact and give an excessively bravuro performance as Mesalla, but he's not on screen as much as Stephen Boyd would be later on.
And what about the color sequences? Yes, there was actually color movies made in 1927, a fact I did not know. There are several color sequences which stun and fascinate. The chariot scene is epic and among the most stellar scenes ever shot in movie history; the same can be said for the galley scene, where the slaves sit three in a row and are rammed to death by Pirates on the high seas. Again, the 1959 version cannot hold a candle to this version in the epic, grand scenes.
Get this movie and cherish it. I've watched it three times in the past month and am amazed at its scope, depth and power. Beautiful masterpiece!

I really like this movie. There are 2 major differences from the actual movie, both of which i like: first of all, the movie begins with Charleton Heston giving a little background, and secondly, concerning ben hur's relationship with masala, they changed it for the sake of children. So in the movie, the 2 of them end up making amends. There are some other minor differences but nothing that affects the basic theme of the movie.
