I saw this in an advance screening and was bowled away. It has (IMO) the best action sequence of the year.

It is also left me an emotional wreck. I literally bawled my eyes out from the windmill scene to the whistling scene.

Well worth seeing.

I couldn't stand it, personally. Over-produced and dull. Irvine plays Sam to the horse's Frodo. It's ridiculous. There's one good scene and even that ends up feeling like a parody before it's over.

If you like your cheese extra thick this movie is for you. There were some scenes with the horse that were good and I really cared. The war scenes were very excellent, but other than that I often found myself not caring or wanting it to be over. I really want to see some good World War I movies and was hoping for more of something along the line of Private Ryan, but I felt this was more like the movie A.I.

This movie ultimitly failed as a war movie and even failed as a horse movie. The parts were kind of in place, but more should have been cut and the ending didn't have to be so over the top.

** out of ***** for me. I'd say see it because there really was some good things happening, but be ready to sit through a whole lot of sap to get to them.

How does this compare to Hidalgo? I really liked that movie but this one just looks boring as hell.

kidsinmind.com gave this movie an "8" for violence, so we are NOT taking our about-to-be-9-year-old to see this unless the consensus is that the violence isn't that bad. She did NOT like Iron Man (although she was a lot younger) because of the realistic violence and they rated that a "7", and Mickey Rourke freaked her out too much for her to watch Iron Man 2.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

I totally agree ... Denzel is fantastic as a villain. I smell some Oscar noms for this flick.
