Christ’ Top News Ben-Hur movie director: Timur Bekmambetov Ben-Hur movie cast: Jack Huston Toby Kebbell Rodrigo Santoro Nazanin Boniadi Morgan Freeman Watching the square-jawed granite-chiselled resolve of Charlton Heston in a Roman arena it was easy to forget that before it became about a chariot race Ben-Hur was a bestseller book that called itself ‘A Tale of the Christ’ From resolve to arenas and chariots to Christ things are rarely Heston-simple anymore Throw in Middle-East Jerusalem occupiers and ‘freedom’ and his conservative heart would quail at this sort of political interpretation of the 1880 classic Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston) is a Jewish prince in this new film and the Roman Messala (Toby Kebbell) his half-brother Judah is in love with a slave Esther (Nazanin Boniadi) while Messala loves Judah’s sister Judah’s family may have adopted Messala after he turned up at their door as an orphan but Judah’s mother doesn’t take kindly to the budding affair between her daughter and Messala In this version Messala’s realisation that he would never have the same standing as Judah’s family in Jerusalem leads him to search for a place for himself in the Roman army The Romans are invading new territories and Messala carves out a place in those battles However rather than just ram the two against each other as in the 1959 William Wyler-directed version Bekmambetov tries to establish motives for both Judah and Messala And it has got nothing to do with a possible sexual attraction between the two as latter-day interpretations of the 1959 film fuelled by co-screenwriter Gore Vidal suggested Judah here is a pacifist who turns a blind eye even to the growing Roman atrocities as long as they don’t touch his family Messala is ever-conscious of his grandfather’s betrayal of the Roman Empire and so willing to go the extra length to overlook what he realises is unnecessary violence by Caesar Judah and Messala only come to war when those two beliefs clash Judah gets to lecture on the use of a kid — significant in the Jerusalem context — to wage political violence Messala talks about how no one can rule a land by being purely an occupier At another time a body covered in dust is paraded by people thirsting for blood in an image resonant of many recent battles waged not too far away Even Jesus (Spanish actor Santoro) pops up here and there steering the film towards a larger message of mercy and forgiveness Yet it is in its 3D action-filled sequences that the Ben-Hur of Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) really comes alive Whether it is in the superbly shot ship galleys where Judah is banished to work as a slave or the chariot race that packs the same sweat blood and adrenalin of the original Still impressive as these sequences are they do not carry the punch they once may have done because it is many many years after 1959 and even several years after 300 and its 3D re-imagination of godly mythologies Morgan Freeman the only well-known actor in the film plays the role of Ilderim an Arab sheikh in dreadlocks who gives Judah a chance for revenge He has been better particularly when counselling defeated proteges While Bekmambetov couldn’t be faulted for trying to keep a distance from the 1959 version — and who wouldn’t given its monstrous 11 Oscars — where Ben-Hur ultimately fails is in how far it seeks to travel Its ending even further dilutes whatever little impact its sympathetic viewing of Biblical characters may have generated showing it up for half-hearted at best And Huston sincere earnest gentle-eyed and long-haired as he is is a hero of modern sensibilities who will go into an arena wearing a white shirt and trousers When you must put a man on a chariot racing himself to death

the youngest entrant in the illustrious 10000 Test run club Alastair Cook can challenge batting legend Sachin Tendulkar’s all-time Test run record Cook yesterday became the first England cricketer to cross the 10000-run mark in Test cricket and the youngest overall beating Tendulkar’s record by five months by reaching the milestone at the age of 31 years and five months Tendulkar —Test cricket’s most prolific batsman with 15921 runs —was 31 years 10 months 20 days old when he scored his 10000th run in 2005 England Test skipper Alastair Cook following his side’s series-clinching win Getty Images "Well the big advantage that England always has is that they are always playing a minimum of 11-12 Test matches on an average in a year In 11-12 Test matches even if you score 50 runs per Test match you are getting about 500 runs every year" Gavaskar said "So over the next 6-7 years there might be a period when he (Cook) might have a terrific year where he might score a 1000 runs so that will certainly give him a chance He has got age on his side he is also one of the very fit players He is less than 32 years and if he plays for 6-8 more years he has got a very good chance" the legendary batsman told NDTV Cook is the 12th batsman and only the second opener to get to 10000 runs in Tests after Tendulkar Ricky Ponting Jacques Kallis Rahul Dravid Kumar Sangakkara Brian Lara Shivnarine Chanderpaul Mahela Jayawardene Allan Border Steve Waugh and Gavaskar himself Cook achieved the feat during England’s nine-wicket victory over Sri Lanka at Durham Asked whether Cook’s achievement was even more special considering that he’s an opening batsman Gavaskar replied in the affirmative "It definitely does because the ball does swing around a little bit more the pitches can sometimes a little bit lively So you are playing in different conditions different pitches Playing in England is much more difficult against quality opposition So I think Alastair Cook certainly deserves a lot of praise for getting there" he said Asked to recollect legendary batsmen who missed out on the elite club Gavaskar said: "Sir Garfield Sobers Sir Viv Richards straightaway come to my
