    Holds up well when comparing to the 1959 remake. I watched the restored version where there were sequences in COLOR!! Awesome! One of the better silent's I've seen. 9/10 6 years 7 months ago

    Epic, but William Wyler's is better. 7 years 6 months ago

    The best silent epic I have seen.

    Only Intolerance (1916) comes close to this one. Intolerance is more colossal and more ahead of its time, but overall I think Ben-Hur is a little better.

    I also think this one is better than the 1959 version. The naval battle is much better, that's for sure.
