5.0 out of 5 stars Big Red Rules! October 6, 2010
By MLW
I love horses, especially thoroughbreds, and Secretariat, whose nickname was "Big Red" was one of the very best. This film does him justice. Diane Lane, who portrays the owner of the horse and the stables, does an exquisite job in her role as gutsy stable owner and extraordinarily classy woman. John Malkovich is perfect as Big Red's trainer, a very savvy misfit who finally gets his chance to find glory in the shape of a horse. Now that I've seen the movie I can't imagine any other actors in those roles. The photography of the races, including the closeups of the back end of a horse's hind legs and hooves filling the screen and throwing dirt at full speed, is amazing. I knew Secretariat's story already, and I wondered if it was worth going to see a movie that just recounted that story over again, but wow! was it ever worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Movie October 11, 2010
By MEG
Many of the reviews said it was overbearing, dull but don't believe it. "Secretariat" was entertaining and inspiring from beginning to end.
It brought back many memories from the horse's victories. Being from NY, I especially enjoyed the scenes from Belmont Park.
Even though "Secretariat" is classified as a "family" movie, it is not just a movie for kids. Adults will enjoy it as much, if not more, than children.
It was also a nice change from the current crop of movies that are made for shock value or without any semblance of a story.
I can't wait to see "Secretariat" again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secretariat - I want my own copy of this movie! October 9, 2010
I did not know the story of "Big Red" aka "Secretariat" before yesterday when I went to see this movie. I do believe I was the only one in the theatre who did not know the out come for all through the movie I felt as though I was the only one clapping, or gripping the side arms of my seat..... the movie about made my heart burst due to the anticipation and desire for the underdog to win! I loved the racing scenes in this film, the beauty of a horse running and running, flexing everyone of it's muscles, doing what it knows it was born to do! The communication/love between Big Red and his owner is heart breaking and one that a true animal lover can relate to. This film was expertly done and I encourage everyone to go see "Secretariat"!!!! Stay until the end when they show who played who for it is one of those great movies where you just want to know what happened to all of the key players ....the ending will share their whereabouts.
All my best to under-dogs and animal lovers everywhere!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hearts of Champions January 5, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a great film for everyone, especially if you lived at the time of SECRETARIAT. This was the first movie I have seen in about 2 years, and the first in a long time that I was excited about and truly wanted to see. In 1973, Secretariat touched everyone in this country. Just about everyone was talking about and rooting for this horse. But, in addition to telling the story of a champion Triple Crown winning horse, this film tells the story of just how implausible the events behind the champion were. While taking a few moments of dramatic license, it effectively tells the story of the background of this thoroughbred legend as was brilliantly laid out by William Nack, in SECRETARIAT, THE MAKING OF A CHAMPION. I have heard about and read reviews that this was more Penny's story than Secretariat's story, maybe so, but the truth is, without Penny, there would be no Secretariat. This is no different than SEABISCUIT, which was as much the story of the three individuals who brought immortality to that horse as well. In short, this is a must see film, and is thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable. For once you can see a movie and feel good about what you have seen; the story of a horse with a tremendous heart nurtured on by people with the heart to believe. HE IS MOVING LIKE A TREMENDOUS MACHINE,(from Chic Anderson's immortal call during the Belmont Stakes).

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was good. October 24, 2011
Format:DVD
The story of Secretariat must be one of the pinnacles of American life in the last century. While watching this movie, no less than twice I might add, I reflected how the 1970s seemed the zenith of American civilization: the epic of Secretariat, Bobby Fischer's conquest of the world chess championship, the birth of the Star Wars saga in cinema, the birth of role playing and video games, and the genesis of the internet and personal computer were all products of this destiny-laden decade in the United States. Thanks to movies like Secreriat, we can immortalize in art the triumphs of yesteryear, making them into myth as the age sadly westers past its meridian. (cf. Lovecraft's "He" for the full details.)

Secretariat recounts the story of the horse's rise to win the triple crown. I guess the movie did not get better critical mention than it did because it seems to have been an obvious take off of Seabiscuit from a couple of years prior. I liked Secretariat better than Seabiscuit because the later movie conveyed a greater authenticity by including more realistic detail about the horse-racing industry. I also found the script more poetic and compelling, especially the thematic quotation from the book of Job. Most of all, Secretariat felt like a genuine, innocent story with none of the diseased and contrived tripe that other Hollywood movies purvey, like the movie Inception.
