A stage play can be lots better than an expensive movie,
This review is from: War Horse [DVD]  (DVD)
The director made this movie after being impressed with the stage play.Well the magic, wonder and emotion
fails to make its way over to the big screen. A serious and moving story like this does not need those
Spielberg "bits" that he cant resist putting into his films. Examples include the comedy!!! bits with the
soldiers calling the horse trapped in no mans land, and the extra wire cutters thrown over, the ridiculous
amount of soil ploughed after a quick shower softens the ground.I expected to hear Taras Theme any second
with that GoneWTW. sunset. The Devon house looked like it was done by a Hollywood decorater who had never been to Devon.
I was looking forward to this but being older than 12 I was disappointed.
