Editorial Reviews

RUNNING FREE is the adventurous, inspiring story of a remarkable friendship between a boy and an abandoned young colt named Lucky. In an African mining town, an orphaned servant boy raises a young horse who is destined for a life of hard labor. Together they find the strength to stand up to the cruel plantation owner and his mean-spirited thoroughbred Caesar; fleeing the destruction of the escalating war, they chase after the freedom they deserve. Narrated by Lukas Haas (Witness, Mars Attacks!)and starring Jan Decleir (Character, Antonia's Line), Arie Verveen (The Thin Red Line), as well as Chase Moore and Maria Geelbooi in their big-screen debuts, RUNNING FREE is a visually stunning, unforgettable tale about the triumph of the human - and equestrian - spirit.

By paperbackriter VINE VOICE on November 3, 2001
Format: VHS Tape
An inspiring tale of a young colt named Lucky who endures much tragedy -- separation from his mother, war and isolation-- before gathering the courage to roam free in the grueling African desert. Anyone who has ever pondered an animal's point of view will greatly appreciate Lukas Haas' narration as the inquisitive voice of Lucky. The pure and, ultimately, triumphant views of this sensitive equine are truly thought-provoking in a world where animals are often discarded. The sweeping cinematography of the African desert is stunning and, at times, reminiscent of "Lawrence of Arabia". The supporting cast is outstanding, especially Chase Moore as the young boy who strikes up an everlasting friendship with Lucky. Overall, "Running Free" is a beautiful film which touts the triumph of good over evil, and the persistence of will which allows the underdog to prevail. A word of caution to parents: a frightening war scene and a pair of violent horse fights may be too intense for young children. Otherwise, a highly recommended movie.

My six year old son is a horse lover, so we knew he would like the movie, but we didn't realize that he'd beg to see it over and over, for days. Afterwards, he and his younger brother would pretend they were the horses in the movie, and prance around the house with joy. My wife an I watched it a few times with them and thought it was great too; beautifully filmed.

Caught this unexpected pleasure, on a motel room T.V.. It is a rare, fasinating, high quality Cinematography, educational for all ages, and a highly unusual "inside" look into a horse's world! I'm ordering one for Doc Beeman, who is a world known equine vet,and the rest as gifts to myself, and grandchildren.

This movie was filmed right near where I live and I'm really impressed with how it turned out. But I'm puzzled by why it says it takes place in North Africa... when actually it's South West Africa... but anyway, the photography is brilliant. The story is perhaps aimed more towards younger viewers, but it can still be enjoyed by the whole family.

Overall, this movie was very enjoyable BUT it has some pretty disturbing scenes, that my young children found pretty upsetting. Be prepared to debrief little ones....

At first I was trying to figure out where the narrative was coming from, and then I realized it was the pony. It was a great movie, and I thought it was a little humorous that the pony was narrating the entire movie, but at least it was not a distraction. I have seen movies with talking horses before and at times, they became a little redondent. But I think this one was really the best. More often than not, I read the notes about the movie and then make a decision to purchase or not. Those product notes are very very important although at times, misleading as to language and content. This one was not, and I loved it. This was an excellent movie. I think it touched all of the emotions every single one of them. The horses were absolutely beautiful, and it was easy to become absorbed in their lives. The introduction of the tribal children and their interaction with the horse was excellent, and the ending was unbelievable, who could expect that outcome. I cannot wait to watch it again. Great movie!

This was a very good movie even for the young ones 3+. My granddaughter saw it and wanted to watch it again the same day. Its told from the perspective of the young colt. My Grandson watched it through and he is not quite 3. Good Family movie !

is a so-so movie. The story is okay and will keep your attention...nice movie to relax with while watching it. Not much comes to mind other than most people who enjoy horses would really love to see it.
