The Black Stallion is seriously the most heart warming movie I have ever seen. Right from the start you are enthralled with all the action. When Alec and Black are washed up on the same island together you feel incredible relief because you just know they are going to take care of each other. You see them playing together on the beach like little children and it literally makes you yearn to be stranded on an island with a black stallion!! As a horse lover I was ecstatic when the boy was saved but even more so when they wouldn't leave each other and Black swam out to make sure they wouldn't lose each other.The horse race at the end is intense and you want nothing more than to see these two amazing characters win! One of my many favorite parts of the movie was when the film was over and they showed frames of when Alec and Black were on the island together, galloping through the sand and ocean and the sunset. Truly magestic!!!! Along with the music playing, it truly made me cry. I've seen all the horse movies out there, and enjoyed each one, but The Black Stallion sincerely warmed my heart. Even if you don't know or care much about horses, you will after you see this film. I LOVED IT!! And bought it so I could feel all tingly and warm all over again!

I had seen the film a number of years ago, and decided to watch it the other night. Perhaps age (and the excess of cinematic junk out there)has something to do with it, but seeing it again, I must say this is not a great child's film, or a great horse film, but a wonderful, sooaring film that deserves to be included on a short list of the best that Hollywood has ever produced. And this is from someone who has been an avid film buff for over 40 years. The visuals are breathtaking, the 27-minute sequence on the island without dialogue was a master stroke of judgement and restraint, and the characters and their dialogue ring remarkably true. I just ordered the DVD. I don't want my grandchildren to miss this.

by Larry D. Bohall (author of Martyr's Cry--ISBN 1591295327): I remember reading The Black Stallion as a kid, and was absolutely enthralled with the movie. This is an incredible film that works best on the BIG screen. I loved the direction, the sparsity of dialogue, the music. Mickey Rooney was exceptional. And so was Kelly Reno. I recommend this movie highly!

Peruse the other reviews. I concur with every exemplary description of this movie and would like to add two things. One is that the cinematography is so positively beautiful that the eyes drink in the art before them. The other is the way they put together the musical soundtrack with the action on the screen. The scene with the horse first taking high steps through the water in time to the music, then later galloping to the tempo of the beautiful classical music. This movie is not only a very exciting story, but the exquisite cinematography and the wonderful weaving of the musical soundtrack are a feast for the eyes and ears as well. This movie is an absolute emotional and sensory experience.

This film was so beautifully filmed and the soundtrack is wonderful!! I received this movie for Christmas when I was 10 and when I watched it for the first time I was enchanted. No film will ever touch me the way this film has. You must see it!

One of the best movies ever. Incredible scenery and haunting in its beauty. Maybe a little slow in places for some, but I loved every minute of it. I so long to see it again on the big screen.

This movie was excellent! My family watched it together and we all loved it. It was a great movie and you should watch it.

The almost surreal visuals captured in the filming of this movie are so stunning that you get halfway through the film before you realize that there has been almost no dialog. In my opinion, this movie ranks up there with Avatar as being one of the "Breakthrough" films of our age. Any wanna-be Director should be required to watch this film in their studies. Is the storyline great? No. It lost a lot in translation from the book, however, that being said, it is still very much worth watching if, in any way, shape, or form, you love horses or enjoy breath-taking scenery. It's worth it.

i should of nowen better to watch this movie after i read the book the book was not that good not bad just not real good i was hopping the black horse would when the race at the end againt the tiger like in the book insted it was diffrent if it wasnt for Mickey Rooney one of the hotest male actors in my opinion the movie would have been a total flop but they should have used a brown horse maybe the next time hoolywood does it they make it better
