BEN-HUR is a drama in which a galley slave, a Jewish prince accused of attempting to assassinate a Roman official, escapes and becomes a champion chariot racer.
Moderate violence includes people being shot with arrows and stabbed with swords. Bloodshed is minimal and little or nothing is seen in terms of discernible injury detail.
- Injury detail
In one scene a young man is seen with a bloody injury to an upper arm; the wound is later cauterised with a hot knife. In another sequence a charioteer sustains a bloody injury during a race when his head collides with a wall. A little blood is also seen on the ground after another man is run over and dragged beneath a chariot.
There is moderate threat in both the chariot race and in a sea battle in which a Roman galley is rammed and sunk by an enemy warship, leaving galley slaves chained to their oars struggling for survival.
