If You Really Love Horses...

If you really love horses, "Spirit" is a fair movie to watch. However, I like horses and couldn't sit through this agonizing movie. Neither could my two year old. It's boring, uneventful and the animation is no better than any other Dreamworks flick out as of right now. The characters aren't likeable and there are very few fun moments in the movie. I will have to say that the attempts at breaking "Spirit" were funny, but that's about where it ends.
The story moves at an agonizing pace. Forty minutes into the movie, the pace picks up a little bit. Other than that, the lack of dialogue leaves you wanting more. I'll give Dreamworks credit for attempting to use music as the horse's "voice," but Bryan Adams must have really ticked off a Canadian official to end up on this sinking ship.
The DVD extras aren't all that good either. The games didn't respond well to my remote, and the documentaries on the music and movie were just put in to allow the production team and Hans Zimmer to gush over themselves. They should keep their comments to themselves.

In closing, I hate to knock a movie so hard, but this movie is bad. I wouldn't feel right telling a person how great it is when it really isn't that amazing. If you still want to watch a movie about an animal that lacks dialogue, watch "The Bear." It is twenty times better than this movie and a whole lot easier to watch. Sorry for the bad review, but my conscious is clear for now.
