    its OK....

    its extremly slow and has a lame plot. i love horses and when i heard about Hidalgo, i wanted to see it really badly, hoping it would be just as great as 'Seabicuit'. when i saw it with my family i was so disappointed. 'Seabiscuit', i believe is the greatest horse movie, by far way better than this. this movie's politically-correct beginning, with the 'white men fighting Indian' stuff had really sounded dumb. Viggo Mortenson had been really good in 'The Lord Of The Rings' trilogy but he completely gives an embarrassing name for himself here, playing a half-Indian Frank T. Hopkins (who wasn't ever a half-Indian in real life) who believes in the Indian 'Great Spirit' spiritual stuff and speaks Indian, likes an ugly Arabian girl who's the daughter of a shiekh, and all that. i've read history alot, both of America and foreign countries. in reality a a muslim (especially a shiekh) wouldn't ever let *any* man around his closely veiled daughter (in the movie the girl's veil was falling off and her face was exposed alot, even in public and especially at the end) or let him touch her. if a man did, both were instantly tortured before being immediately put to death, a fantastic show for the audience. further, a shiekh never touched anyone, since it would take his ability to 'foreshadow the future'. this was accurately done in the movie, but at the end the shiekh shook Viggo's character anyway! the plot of the story is mediocre, and it doesn't focus on the horse alot and its so slow (except for the sand- storm part) that it makes you want to sleep during the film. this movie deserves a one star rating, despite it's flashy video cover and the reviews of the film.

    Sorta boring...

    No offense, but I was really bored with this movie. I mean, I liked the plot but it wasn't exiting enough. But that's just me. Try it if you want to.
