    Synopsis


    War Horse
    Director Steven Spielberg's epic World War I drama details the remarkable bond between a man named Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and his loyal horse, Joey. Adapted from the novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse follows the growing friendship between man and beast as Albert trains Joey, and then follows Joey on an incredible journey across the English countryside after the pair are forcibly separated. Along the way, Joey touches the lives of everyone he comes into contact with, including British and German soldiers, as well as a kindly French farmer and his impressionable granddaughter. Later, in no man's land, Joey's extraordinary saga winds to a poignant and deeply affecting climax. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Real Horses....not CG

      Being an animal lover I knew this would be a difficult movie for me to watch. I expected CG of some sort in the presentation of the horses, especially since this is a Steven Spielberg movie. The horses and their "acting" are real. They are amazing, breathtaking animals who brought to life the plight of the war horse. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen; truly deserving of the accolades it has received from many critics as one of the best motion pictures of 2011. It should have received the Academy Award for Best Picture in my humble opinion. Steven Spielberg is a national treasure.

      I also like to wait to get my movies when I need to purchase other items from Best Buy. i am drawn to the movies like a moth to the light. I rather buy movies then to see them at the show since the prices have gone up so high. Th price I pay about, sometimes if their special isn't as cheap as i would like. I have to buy it when I can, because it may not be there the next time i go back. ....I also can lend my movies to my friends who missed it at the show or even Red Box.

      Excellent, though somewhat graphic, drama.

      An overall excellent movie. An intertwined perspective on historical events and entertaining front story, though not entirely true to fact. Nice cinematography and location settings. Somewhat graphic so caution to those who are sensitive to those type things - especially when it comes war and animals. Finally dropped in price after several years.

      A nice movie of a horse, his owner and the journey

      Althought the plot reminded me a a "Lassie" movie, with the substitution of a horse for a dog, I still loved it. The cinematography was beautiful. The music never once over powered the movie as in other movies. The soundtract was wonderful. The landscapes were breath-taking. Thank-you Steven Spielberg for another epic adventure!

      Great movie for teenagers and above

      Few movies tell about World War I. The need for horses existed, they were treated badly on the front lines. This changed as did the relationship between American and German soldiers. Soldiers on either side are depicted as being inhumane during war. As the movie progresses this perspective is changed.

      Arguably Steven Spielberg's finest work. The themes of friendship, love, and yes, faith in the Lord are beautifully and expertly interwoven into this tour de force. It's powerful, touching, uplifting. Simply put, see this movie.

      This was a great movie that could appeal to everyone, especially animal lovers with loyalty to their pets. My preteen son also got an idea as to horrors of WWI. Right price for DVD set. Recommended!

      Just your typical good Disney movie about a relationship between a human and an animal, this time a horse during WWI. I don't consider this one a great movie, but I found it very entertaining, and a movie the whole family can watch.
