Overview

Screenwriter John Fusco returns to the Western themes of his previous films Young Guns and Thunderheart with this animated children's adventure from Dreamworks. Matt Damon supplies the voice of Spirit, a wild Mustang stallion living free in the Old West of the late 19th century, where he's captured by human horse traders and sold to a cavalry regiment at a frontier outpost. There, a cruel colonel voice of James Cromwell nearly succeeds in breaking the willful horse, but not quite. Spirit escapes in the company of another captive, Little Creek voice of Daniel Studi, a Native American youth that tries to possess the magnificent animal by more humane means, but Spirit refuses to bend to human will even when he makes the acquaintance of Little Creek's beautiful and fiercely loyal mare, Rain. After he saves Little Creek's life in an Army raid, Spirit believes that the gravely injured Rain has perished after a tumble over a waterfall. Despondent, the horse is captured again by humans, enslaved this time for work in a pack team on the transcontinental railroad. Undaunted by the tragedies that befall him, Spirit manages to escape for a reunion with Little Creek, Rain, and his long-lost brethren. Featuring songs by rock singer Bryan Adams, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron departs from other examples of its genre in that the horse protagonists do not speak or sing; only Spirit's voice is heard as voice-over narration.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
One of the best animated films of 2002, Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron is a stirring western saga told not from the perspective of a feisty mustang. Matt Damon is the voice of the hero who grows "from colt to stallion, racing with the eagle, soaring with the wind." Spirit's idyllic life as the leader of his herd is shattered when the U.S. Army captures him, and the defiant horse finds himself locked in a battle of wills with the fort's stern Colonel (voiced by James Cromwell, the kindly farmer from Babe). Spirit refuses to be broken, and will let no man ride him until he meets a kindred soul, a Lakota brave named Little Creek. Things are better for Spirit on Little Creek's reservation, but the stallion's unquenchable longing for his home and herd lead him and the mare he loves to even greater adventures. Some of the film's bravura set pieces -- an eagle's flight over a majestic landscape that rivals the opening of The Lion King, a spectacular train wreck, and a cliff-leaping escape - will set the hearts of animation buffs and horse lovers galloping. Bryan Adams supplies power ballads full of empowering messages that underscore the G-rated film's politically correct tone, but Spirit does contain scenes of emotional upheaval and mistreatment that may disturb young foals.
All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron is a technically innovative film, blending hand-drawn and computer animation with a seamlessness never approached before, but most viewers probably won't know the difference. They're more likely to notice how otherwise uninspired the film seems. The problems start with the filmmakers' decision not to have the animals talk. This was a wise choice, in some respects. As co-director Kelly Asbury has noted, they realized early on that "the minute you have a horse speak, it's a comedy." Caroline Thompson's 1994 live-action film Black Beauty successfully told the classic story from a (non-speaking) horse's point of view. And Jean-Jacques Annaud's 1988 film The Bear also effectively used a real animal in the lead. Matt Damon's voiceover, from the point-of-view of the horse, is used sparsely and effectively. But the animators for Spirit decided to use the unrealistic nature of the medium to make the horses more expressive. As they gesture, smile, shake their heads, raise eyebrows, and neigh, whinny, and grunt at each other (at times sounding more like Chewbacca than horses) in a recognizably human (and decidedly un-horse-like) way, one begins to wish they'd just spit it out. Despite some pleasant Old West scenery early on, the film picks up considerable steam once Spirit comes into contact with humans, and the plot kicks in. This leads to a few exciting, well-animated action sequences, particularly one involving Spirit and a team of horses being forced to drag a train engine up a hill. The film doesn't approach the heights of modern animation, and its childish simplicity, as exemplified by the insipid Bryan Adams songs on the soundtrack, may bore adults. But it is likely to keep younger children entertained.

    The Movie From The Heart

    Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimerron is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life. Since The Lion King, I thought that there could not be any movie that can be as good as The Lion King. But when I watched Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimerron, my mind has changed. It is an outstanding movie that has been created after The Lion King. This is the movie that involves full of emotion. The setting of the movie is absolutely brilliant. Needless to say that, the music and songs are obviously amazing. This is the movie that will blow your mind into the movie. The movie will change your feelings from happyness to sadness even cry. I have watched it many times and I still like to watch it. This is the most enjoyable movie for all ages. Visit the Spirit web site for more information about the movie. SPIRIT IS THE STUNNING!!!

    Wonderful Film!

    Spirit is most definitely one of my favorite animated films of all time. The story is well written and keeps the viewers' focus; the animation is superb, particularly in the beginning when the eagle is flying over the landscape, and also when Spirit jumps in the water after Rain and the ''camera'' goes underwater. This movie ignites the viewers' emotions and captures the audience's hearts with wonderful animation and powerful songs that make Spirit a completely unforgettable film for all ages to enjoy.

    From a horse funatic!!!

    I loved this movie!! Two things that I would have changed were when Spirit laps up the water like a dog, and the foals that Spirit saved from the cougar. Spirit was gone for like a year and they didn't grow an inch by the time he came back. I am a Lion King person and that was my favorite movie, but I couldn't choose my fav. between the two. I love them both. I am definatly hoping for a sequel.

    Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

    I am a big fan of horses so when i first saw the previews for this movie, I was like, ''Wow. I have to see that movie.'' So I did and what I found out was that the movie was just as great as i expected it to be! It had great animation (everything looked so real!) beautiful backgrounds, and much much more! The soundtrack that goes with the movie is also very great. I recommend this movie to horse lovers of all ages!

    I Also Recommend:

    The best dreamworks movie next to how to train your dragon.

    This was so enjoyable. Me and my sister love it. The horse does not talk, which I love, it makes it more realistic, the closest you get is the narration. Beautiful. Parents, I think would love to see it with their children. Sure to please any horse lover, nothing that you should be alarmed about, a person "Almost" swears, but doesn't finish. This is one of the best movies, I highly recommend it. I would love it if they made a sequel (Who knows? maybe it will happen eventally) Try to watch it if you haven't already. It's terrific.

    Wonderful

    This movie sent shivers down my spine. Any horse lover would truly fall in love with it. This story is truly remarcable real or not. The way a loving horse wishes to regain his freedom, back to his herd. The moral of this story is...Never let go of what's in your heart. Magic flows within it.

    Ok but not great

    When i got this film, it had only just come out on VHS an DVD, and i had never seen it before at the cinema or anything so i was excited about seeing it, after reading lots of good reviews and stuff. I found it really good at first, convincing myself that it was the best animated film i had ever seen. But at the back of my mind, i knew it wasn't really. So after a while (never liking to admit i was wrong) i stopped watching it and playing the game (i'd even bought a PC game of it) and started watching other films. I guess the things i don't like about it is that horses don't have eyes like humans (I do have 3 horses!) and the numerous mistakes made in it (check out www.moviemistakes.com). I'm not saying i hate it, it's just not one of my favorite animated films.

    THE SWEETEST!!!!!!!

    Spirit is the best of the best I have ever seen. It was cool when he jumped over the big crack and happy when the frontier gave up trying to catch him. Spirit is the sweetest movie ever and the happiest ending. This movie was my favorite and I enjoyed it ALOT!!! I never liked other horse movies but I think spirit rocked it!!!

    It's the Best!!!!!!!

    This is definetly one of Disney's greatest movies. It's a million times better than the Lion King. The Lion King is totally corny. In Spirit, the action scenes totally blow you away and the romance scenes between Spirit and Rain are sort of rushed and short-lived but VERY cute. Especially when they share the apple ^_^. It was really sad when Spirit and Rain were seperated and Spirit thought she was dead. He looked so sad on the train it almost made me cry ;_;. But it was the sweetest part in the end when he finds out Rain is alive. The reunion is definetly the cutest part of the movie ^_^. The whole ''remember who you are'' thing is kinda stolen from the Lion King, but it was definetly portrayed a zillion times better. The music is the best and it's really interesting that the story is told from a horse's point of view. Arrgh, this movie is so perfecto....I'm dying for a sequel.

    The best horse movie ever.

    When I first rented this movie for my little sisters I really didn't want to see it myself but since I had nothing else to do I decided to watch it with them. I loved that movie so much it was fun,thrilling, and scary at some times. But it was an all over wonderful movie. I would recomend this movie to everyone who loves horses, good music, and a lot of laughs.

    This doesn't even rate a one star!!!!

    I am a horseman (woman actually) and this movie IS NOT FOR THE TRUE HORSEMAN or anyone else for that matter. There was no real storyline to the movie, the music did not fit the movie and there was little realism (a horse running sideways on a rock face or jumping a chasm that a motorcycle wouldn't have made is not very realistic) I have had a horse or worked with horses for 27 years. The only realism that I saw was the friendship that was between the horses and the indian, and the way the calvary broke horses. It would have been a good fictional kind of movie if the storyline had been better developed.

    This movie will ''WOW'' you

    When I rented this movie I thought, ''great a talking horse movie.'' But, something just told me to rent it and was I fascinated. The landscaping backgrounds are so breathtaking. The story line was unique and interesting and the music by Brian Adams was so connected to Spirit. I laughed and cryed and truly enjoyed the experience of it all. I am an adult...and I am buying it today. I liked it that much. You are truly missing something if you do not see it. Four years of hard work making it truly paid off.

    Very Impressive!!!

    I have been around horses my entire life and I've seen some really dumb horse movies. The horse world is a lot like any other major interest. You can pick out exactly what is right and exactly what is wrong and sometimes it is so irritating when you know more than the people who did the movie. I did find more than one fault in Spirit, too, but they did an excellent job with the story line, the music, the graphics, and with the effort put into understanding horses better so they could make this movie. The only error that sticks out worse than a sore thumb is that young Spirit laps the water like a dog right before the buffalos come. Horses SIP water they don't lap it! The canyon jump and the ''tooth thing'' (that is, the horses' teeth show a lot in the movie which doesn't happen in real life) I will just blame on it being a movie. There ARE others but I will spare you. :)
