Review: Ben-Hur

With all the subtlety of a shotgun blast to face, Ben-Hur is here to wobble around the screen and finally fall flat on its face. With the 1959 original hailed as one of Hollywood’s best in terms of pure entertainment, this is one in a series of Hollywood remakes that shouldn’t have been made.


We are greeted at the beginning of the movie by the smooth familiar voiceover of Morgan Freeman, as he tells of the two brothers who make the main conflict of the movie.

Three years later, Messala returns, now a decorated officer, and assists with the Roman occupation of Jerusalem. When there is an assassination attempt made against the new Roman Governor Pontius Pilate by an anti-Roman youth who Judah had been sheltering in his home, Messala is then bullied into punishing Judah and the family, who the Romans believe to be responsible.

James Gilmore interviews Margot Robbie about Suicide Squad

It's undoubtedly one of the most hotly anticipated movies of the summer.

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne - this summer it feels good to be bad...

U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller (played by Viola Davis) has put together a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains with the most powerful arsenal and has sent them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity.

However, once they realise they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
