Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The wealthy landowners from Australia's low country once again have a plan to stick it to the Man. The Man from Snowy River, that is, in this thundering sequel to the surprise 1982 hit of that name, which is a Barnes & Noble Family Adventure Fundamental. Tom Burlinson is back in the saddle as Australian folk hero Jim Craig, who returns after a three-year absence with 100 wild horses in tow and big plans, which include finally marrying Jessica Harrison, the "high-steppin' filly" once again portrayed by Sigrid Thornton. Rekindling their romance, though, also stokes the simmering feud between the landed gentry and the high-country folk. Jim's chief nemesis is a nasty banker's son who, besides being a snob ("You're out of your class here, Craig," he sneers), hightails it with Craig's horses after being spurned by Jessica. Like the first film, this is near-ideal family entertainment. The scenery is breathtaking, and the horses are magnificent. One stunt, involving Craig riding his beloved stallion down a steep mountain, is worthy of Tony Hawk. The chaste romance between the forthright Craig and the spirited Jessica makes this an ideal date movie for young teens. The PG rating is for a handful of mild profanities and one heartbreaking equine death. Devotees of the first film will be thrilled to add this to the video stable.

    My childhood favorite movie

    Return to Snowy River is the earliest movie I can remember seeing in theaters. Sitting in the front row of a movie theater I was mesmorized. I've riden horses all my life and this is my all-time favorite horse movie. Get this movie. If you saw the first movie and liked it, you will love the sequel. In my opinion the sequel is even better than the original. If you haven't seen the orignal, you won't be left in the dark coming into the story half way through. It's not earth-shattering (unless you are a die-hard, four year old horse lover), but it's a fun movie.

    Big screen tvs were made for this kind of movie.

    A good, clean movie with breathtaking scenery. Who can forget the wild horse scenes when they plunge down the mountain?
