Watch this if you liked: “Risen”

The Good, the Bad and the Accused Prince:

• For those who have never watched the original version of "Ben-Hur", they would find this version interesting, but for those who have, then they might not feel the same way.

• Many may deem the movie as another unnecessary remake of a great classic, and they are right, as the movie seems like another version of "Gladiator" meets "Spartacus" and without anything we haven't already seen before.

• However, the film seems to match the original version in terms of its devotion to detail, and it still keeps the Christian values and aspects alive the same way that the original did. The cast however, does not even come close.

Trivia:

• The lead role was first offered to Tom Hiddleston but he chose to do "Kong: Skull Island" instead.
