Could the chariot race have been more crappy?


The chariot race lacked a stadium and seemed to have 3 chariots. They drove through narrow streets. Not even an audience in the stands (what stands)? Complete GARBAGE.

Haven't seen this; it hasn't opened in Chicago yet and won't bother when it does open.

I find your post interesting. I was sure the chariot race would be an over-CGI, overwrought, unrealistic mess. Surprised, I guess, that they went underwhelming...kind of like the parting of the Red Sea in Exodus: Gods and Kings - more like the draining of the Red Sea rather than the parting of the waters.

This miniseries didn't air in Chicago?

Pretty sure the poster meant to put this in the thread for the new Ben Hur movie board. The new one is very good by the way !

I'm talking about the miniseries 2010 tv version, not the 2016 theater movie version. lol
