** True for modern audiences and readers. Although to be fair, it is the best-selling novel of the nineteenth century, and it was second only to the Bible as the best-selling book in America until ''Literature/GoneWithTheWind'' was published over fifty years later.

* ToughActToFollow: After the 1959 adaptation became one of the all-time cinema masterpieces, it was a bit eyebrow raising to hear about a 2016 version. That one ended up becoming one of the biggest busts of 2016.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: The sea battle definitely brings WarIsHell to mind; in the 2016 version Judah and the other galley slaves are trapped belowdecks, unable to do anything except row forward and back while their ship rams another, oil from burst barrels pours down, and the drummer catches fire. Then, just as he's able to rally the slaves to get them unstuck from the ship they're on, a Greek ship ''with a Roman prisoner strapped to its ram'' smashes into them, tearing the boat in two and filling it with water. The boat being torn in two is even worse because the slaves on Judah's side of the ship are pulled into the water by the chains strapped to their ankles, and Judah's lucky to escape drowning.

* EndingFatigue: You'd think the story would end with Judah winning the chariot race.
** It was never about the race. [[FridgeBrilliance The movie is about letting go of the hate.]]
