5.0 out of 5 stars War Horse- the way films use to be made...
I tried not to read the reviews or hype about this film as I wanted to experience it without any bias.From the opening scene of the lush fields of an English country-side, the idealic stone farmhouse- the flushed cheeks and blue eyes of our young hero,Jeremy Irvine and the sleek chestnut tones and velvet black eyes of the main protagonist Joey- everything glowed with the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Spielberg's best
Michael Morpurgo wrote This classic children's story which found its way to the stage as an amazing play: now Stephen Spielberg has brought it to the big screen.

The story itself deals with the strength of equine and human spirits in the face of what are now the almost unimaginable privations of the First World War. Spielberg is well qualified to deal with such...

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful. Truely awful., 8 Jun 2012
This review is from: War Horse [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Sickly sentimental. Twee. Wooden acting, attrocious dialogue spoken with cod 'allo-allo' accents and mind-numblingly predictable plot- shot through with holes.

Too many bad scenes to list but amongst the low-lights are:
The conversation between two 1914 British soldiers in which they use the modern expression "As if!"
The brothers desertion scene in which, instead of sneeking away in the night, they choose to gallop past an entire regiment of marching troops.
The French(?) father and daughter who fail to notice two German soldiers being executed by firing squad right outside their house - then the next day wonder "where did these two horses come from?"
The disappearing lake when the father runs up the hill.
The scene where the horse jumps the tank.
The idea that WWI soldiers would care more about some dumb horse than their comrades being killed and maimed left right and centre.

An utterly appalling film. Avoid at all costs.
