OK...so you are wondering where the beautiful Midnight black stallion on the cover comes in right?! Well, one day the father is riding to clear his head about the financial problems and his wife's idea about the new crop when he spots a stunning horse just prancing around in the wild. He decides to try to catch the horse so he can enter a horse race and hopefully win a huge sum of money that would help his family.
So, my thoughts, Kris Kristofferson who I am a huge fan of and if you have ever seen A Star is Born you would know why. He was beautiful looks like he should be playing the grandpa and not the father of this young girl however, I do love him so we will let the fact that I had a hard time understanding him. However, I am a fan of Miss Ferland who was in Eclipse, Cabin In The Woods, The Haunting Hour, Silent Hill and Kingdom Hospital and thought she was perfect as the good, cowboy hat wearing, horse riding daughter.
It is a sweet movie. Even the teen relationship is sweet! Great family movie full of inspiration and a reminder on how we should never give up!
My dad even watched it while flying on a trip, and enjoyed it very much.
last but not least, when they almost catch the horse at the beginning of the movie, the horse runs over a rope to trigger the gate to close, the camera does a closeup of the horse's feet and it is clearly two blocks of wood with stilts going over the rope.
Overall, the movie is terrible.
don't waste your money on something that it is totally NOT worth.
Another total escape from reality is a rich, snobby banker trying to buy the stallion because the horse is so fast he could, perhaps, be raced in the Preakness or the Kentucky Derby!!! PLEASE!!! The only breed of horse allowed to run in any of these races is a Thoroughbred registered by the Jockey Club. You know... a horse like Man O' War, Seabiscuit, Secretariat, War Admiral, etc.......
And the ending almost had me wanting to pass out. Selfish, greedy, wealthy people who try to use and abuse everyone do NOT suddenly become all 'warm and fuzzy' as these people did.
The scenery WAS beautiful as were the horses, but the poor acting and completely unrealistic horse aspect negated all of the positives. I bought the damn thing and wish I had my money back. Even more, I wish I could have my Saturday night back: I wasted 91 minutes of my life with this......
