Wat a disappointment!

There I was, expecting a remake of the original,or thereabouts.Okay so I wasn't expecting the huge Cinematic blockbuster that was the original, but come on! Was this meant to be tongue-In-cheek? No,but It certainly seems that way. My first worries began when I discovered that the filming locations were In Wales. Now, parts of Wales are spectacularly beautiful, but Ben-Hur and the Welsh valleys Just don't gel, It certainly wouldn't have been at the top of my list of "suitable locations", but these are only my opinions of course - each to his or her own, as they say. That said, the 19th century dry-stone walls built by Welsh farmers do seem a little out of place. The running time of 1.5 hours, less than half the length of the original, didn't bode well. The costumes. Too clean and bright and suitable only at a fancy dress party. Cleanliness, obvious make up, strategically-placed "dirt" on faces, trimmed facial-hair and perfectly manicured nails add to what comes across more like an episode of a kids tea-time drama than an epic-remake. Where are the advances In Cinematic skills and technology which allow film-makers to create realism like never before? Erm...absent. As for the acting, mediocre across the board Is quiet a generous statement. For those who've never seen the 1959 epic and view this entirely on Its own merit, perhaps who also have little or no Interest In historical accuracy (and there's nothing wrong In that), or who view the whole and have no concern for the parts which make up that whole, then this Movie may Just entertain you a little, or maybe even more so. Despite my negativity, I do however think that the younger element will like It (and no-doubt find the original rather overstretched and boring) as It does have Its share of action and drama. But for those over 21 I'd have to say "Your time could be much better spent"!

A mock-buster hit

For a small budget movie 'In The Name Of Ben Hur' is very good. There's no escaping that there are holes in the plot and the quality of production is somewhat inconsistent but there are several strong acting performances. The immense (literally) Adrian Boucher as Ben Hur, Jonno Davies as the young vigilante Adrian and Michael Bott as Cassium are certainly worth a mention. Alan Calton, Marcello Walton and Peter Ormond provide good support too. The filming locations are stunning, with the mountains of Snowdonia substituting for what is now modern-day Portugal and horsemanship is excellent throughout. Some very good fight scenes help move the action along and the story is easy to follow. Another 'mock-buster' hit for Asylum. A good yarn well worth watching.
