Comments about Ben-Hur: 50th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray):

Two of the most influential film critics of their time, Bosley Crowther, formerly of the "New York Times" and Dwight Macdonald, formerly of "The New Yorker" and "Esquire Magazine" have both praised and panned William Wyler's epic wide screen Technicolor remake of General Lew Wallace's mid-Victorian epic "Tale of the Christ", "Ben-Hur". And while both reviewer's opinions have had considerable merit, that is to say, depending on which side of the fence you choose to straddle, over the years since "Ben-Hur's" intial release when it first premiered back in 1959, Wyler's magnificent opus which has only improved with age has also withstood the test of time admirably. In the final analysis, whether or not you like or hate it has been rendered moot as Wyler's remake has emerged as one of those inviolate classics that any and all future generations of film critics with a desire to level their criticism in retrospect of this, the definitive version of Wallace's epic hero, "Ben-Hur", must first realize that Wyler's classic has come to be regarded as the quintessential yard stick by which all film epics past, present, and future are to be measured.
