It’s a pity writer and coproducer Ian Jones couldn’t come up with a more substantial storyline to build around his terrific climax.

Like many labours of love, the new movie is full of sincerity not easily appreciated by outsiders.

I haven't seen a better action scene with horses since “Ben Hur.” Whether it's worth the price of admission depends, of course, on how much you like horses.
