Editorial Reviews

Capturing the edge-of-your-seat suspense of any real horserace, Lightning, the White Stallion will make your pulse gallop and your heart soar! When a stolen white stallion escapes his captors, young Stephanie Ward (Isabel Lorca) gives him a new home and a new name: Lightning. As she grooms the horse for show-jumping competition, the pair forms an unbreakable bond. But when Stephanie finds herself in need of an expensive operation, and Lightning's original owner (Rooney) tracks him down, Stephanie sets all of her hopes on first prize at the Nationalsand on the horse who's become her best friend!

It's a great feel good movie if you love horses.

The main character, goes to the doctor, and he tells her she has, "an eye disease." that's it, that is the prognosis, and she may go blind from it!

I found 700 things wrong with this movie , afterwards I could enjoy it I think because I know so much about horses.

Hoo boy, where to start? I hadn't seen this movie since I was a kid, and I remembered liking it, so when I saw the bad reviews here, I was a bit surprised. Then I decided to dig it out after all these years and watch it again. It's every bit as bad as the others here have said!

The plot is ridiculous. A groom runs off with an expensive stallion belonging to a heavily indebted millionaire (Mickey Rooney), then crashes while driving drunk. A school-bus driver stops, unloads all the kids, has them haul the inebriated man into the bus, and drops him off at the hospital on the way to school, leaving one of the students, Stephanie Ward (Susan George) behind to look after him! The thief proceeds to provide Stephanie, a complete stranger, with his and the horse's real names, gives her 15% ownership, and allows her to compete with the stolen stallion (originally Cloverdale III, renamed "Lightning" by Steph). Steph alternates between professing love for the horse and talking about how she can sell him for a lot of money if he becomes a champion, because she needs the funds for an eye operation, else she'll be blind within a year.

Even severe suspension of disbelief won't get you through this movie. Despite the stolen animal supposedly being worth a fortune, the police are never involved. Instead, two teenagers (Steph and her boyfriend) hunt down the criminals themselves. Stephanie somehow wins the national horse show, defeating an adult 5-time national champion, with only two previous shows as the sum total of her lifetime showing experience. The hospital sends her medical reports (diagnosis: "an eye disease") to her riding instructor before Stephanie herself receives any word. It just goes on and on...

The acting is abominable.

Wow, this movie was so bad I really don't even know where to start! I got the white stallion because the cover stated,"Classic family entertainment in the tradition of The Black Stallion." That is far from the truth! This movie is about as far from the Black Stallion as you can get! In previous reviews, people stated that the movie was so bad it was funny. That is true, my favorite is the fact that a sixtyish Mickey Rooney is in love with a twenty year old woman! It's hysterical! The plot is a joke, and really not worth mentioning, and the acting is terrible! The main character, goes to the doctor, and he tells her she has, "an eye disease." that's it, that is the prognosis, and she may go blind from it! All in all, the movie is not worth watching, the horse really doesn't have a major role in this movie. He doesn't have a stong bond with the girl, and the only reason she likes him is because he is worth a lot of money, and she can sell him to cure her, "eye disease". Don't even bother with this one people, go watch something worth it. I would suggest The Black Stallion, The Horse Whisperer, Phar Lap, and National Velvet. Now those are wonderful horse movies!

Format: DVD
This is possibly the worst movie ever made in the best possible way. The plot is ludicrus, the acting atrocious and it looks like it was edited by a blind person. Due to all of this, the producers have managed to create a comedic gem.
Mickey Rooney must have been in dire straights to agree to be in this movie. The plot doesn't make sense whatsoever. I mean, this girl goes from competing at a local horse show, to the State Championship to the National Horse Show in the span of a month or so all while going blind. Also, I'm still not sure why her boyfriend liked her. Plus she is one of the worst riding actors I have seen onscreen and yet she's praised to the sky as being some sort of prodigy. Weird.
The best part of this movie is truly the editing. People are switching places from angle to angle, clothing changes colour and they have obvious horse and people switches. Not to mention that there are about 12 different "Lightnings" in this movie and all are noticably different. It's like they didn't even try.
This movie is worth watching if you're in for a laugh. Do not go into it expecting another Black Stallion. Go into it expecting a movie that looks like it ran out of money before they hit the editing room.
Classic.

This film isn't supposed to be a comedy, but anyone who is familiar with horses or the world of horse shows will find it hilarious. The title character is played by several horses that don't even look alike (it's especially fun to watch his tail change length from scene to scene). I also enjoyed the show ring scenes where the ring announcer gives a running commentary on the rider's performance and life history. The setting is someplace like Iowa or Nebraska and the lead actress has a french accent. I must have missed the part where this was explained, but it certainly adds something to the overall hokiness of the film. Poor Mickey Rooney. I'll bet he has nightmares about this one!

My daughter and I nearly choked with laughter watching it last night. The dialogue cannot be described and as others have mentioned the changes in the horses are well worth the rental fee. Watching a horse with 2 white rear stockings take off and land with just one front white stocking is amusing to say the least. One horse enters with a star, develops a blaze and then leaves with nothing. It's fabulous! I wish MST3000 would run this despite the lack of aliens. Poor Mickey Rooney - what was he thinking? Didn't he read the script before he signed on?
