While its grandiose visuals remain impressive and the chariot race has lost none of its energy and excitement, "Ben-Hur" is overlong and bloated.

The mix of traditional thriller elements, Cold War storytelling, submarine warfare, and Sean Connery's magnetic performance engage the viewer throughout.

Even the most hard-hearted viewer is likely to have an emotional reaction; this is as much a testimony to the way Cooper tells the tale as to the story itself.
