Storyline

During the first century A.D., Judah Ben-Hur is a young Hebrew prince thrown into slavery by the Romans after a tragic accident, who wins his way back to his home and a family on a heroic adventure of discovery. Judah's love for a beautiful slave girl is threatened by the bitter conflict dividing two former freinds, and his triumph is set against the backdrop of the historic struggle between a captive people and a mighty empire. From an exciting sea battle and a thundering chariot race to the dramatic events surrounding the life and death of Christ, this is an epic tale of love, redemption, foregiveness and faith to captivate viewers of all ages.

terrific animated film that the whole family should enjoy
8 April 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this is the only version of Ben Hur that i have seen so far,so i can't compare it to other versions.i will say i really enjoyed this animated version.it's a combination of traditional and 3d animation.visually it is very stunning.the details are very rich vivid.the movie clocks in at less than 90 minutes,but there is a lot jammed into that time.Charlton Heston,who played Ben Hur in the 1950's version is back as the voice of Ben Hur.as i watched the end credits,i noticed that many voice actors portrayed several different characters.i found this amazing,as the characters each had their own distinct sound.i would not have known this if i hadn't watched the end credits.to me,this is a testament to the skill of the performers.this movie is very family friendly,with just one or two scenes that may be a bit intense for young children,so parents may want to preview the movie first before their little ones watch it.this is a great movie overall in my opinion,and well worth watching.my rating is 10/10 for the animated version of "Ben Hur".
