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.

My girlfriend LOVED the first one and LOVED the minions, so I'm glad to hear she should LOVE this one. The guac hat in the commercials has us laughing already.
