    I’m a visual addict, so I simply can’t give this any less than 4 stars, since it’s so stunning beautiful, and it has one of the most incredible cinematic scenes I’ve ever watched: the horse running wild in the middle of the war - I watched it on the movie theater and it was quite a blast to me.

    Nonetheless, I thought the characters have a little lack of depth to my taste, and we don’t get as much attached to them as we probably should. But it’s still a moving story and a beautiful family movie.

    Directed by Steven Spielberg

    Grade: B+

    Unabashedly sentimental, emotionally direct and certainly aiming for a very broad audience, Spielberg's "War Horse" is a really interesting homage to an old fashioned epic Hollywood filmmaking style. It's a sharp contrast to "The Adventures of TinTin" which was released in the same week in 2011. "TinTin" was Spielberg experimenting with some very modern filmmaking technology, creating a movie-going experience that is loud, in your face and brimming with non-stop action. "War Horse" is…

    War Horse is almost as good as a movie can get with sometimes a messy structure but strong characters played by strong actors which makes a throughly entertaining movie.

    No Steve, I'm not falling for it. I'm not falling for your cheesy schmaltz. No way would the film end the way it did. No, war isn't like that. Fuck off.

    A period drama for kids.

    Without any characterisation.

    Who would have thought this would be good? Well I did, cos its spielberg, and if anyone could make a movie about a horse going to war good, he could. He's the king of this stuff. To put it another way, if spielberg had done interstellar after all instead of Nolan, he could have made that crap work, cos he's goddamn spielberg.

    But yeah, war horse is really good. Incredibly sentimental, unrealistic, of course, but under the master of it, its an incredible thing to watch, the cinematography is striking, and... its just a really good movie. I loved it. Highly recommended.

    Do you know; if I didn't know any better, I would be convinced that Spielberg actually wants us to fancy this horse. It's the only way I can explain the bizarre devotion that every human character in this sorry mess has to this creature. At the auction scenes they're practically cramming crumpled dollars into the bridle of the coquettish equine tart.

    As horses go, it's alright. It's a horse. A horse that seems to be the kiss of death and…

    I would've given it 5 stars if the movie had been about the crazy goose.

    The animal acting is very good as well as Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch, even though the last ones being so brief. The story could be better and some emotionally scenes were a little forced but I really liked the visual aspect of the film, especially the England landscapes shots and the last scene with the fantastic sunset.

    ★★★★ Rewatched by Alastair Hendry 16 Nov, 2014

    Lovely story, well told although not as emotionally wrenching as some had led me to believe. The only downside to this beautifully made film is that the story doesn't really allow us to fully invest in the human characters as we never spend very long with them before moving on to the next part of the story. But then this is a story about the horse so I can forgive that. (19.8.12)

    Maybe it's because I'm watching this during the…

    Once upon a time…

    There was a film about a young boy and a horse.

    The boy and the horse did everything together. Ploughed fields, raced cars, played chase.

    Until one sorrowful day, the boy’s father, struggling to pay the rent on his farm, sold the horse to a {corned beef factory}, brave young army officer who needed a trusty steed to ride upon into the field of battle.

    The horse goes to war. The horse becomes a double agent.…
