Best enjoyed as a sample of the state of the art circa 1925, not as a timeless masterpiece.
| Original Score: 7/10
At nearly 2½ hours long, the 1925 version is still an hour shorter than the 1959 version, yet the story is essentially the same, and the scale similarly impressive.

Yes, you'll also find the chariot race in here, and you may even find it as exciting or more exciting than the one Heston enacted.
| Original Score: 4/5
Hokey by today's standards, but one of the greatest silent film spectacles.
| Original Score: 3/5
Novelist Lew Wallace's 'Tale of Christ' got the silent Hollywood treatment, and how, in M-G-M's elephantine costume epic.
Has merits not found in William Wyler's Oscar-laden 1959 remake.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
