Horse, Horse, Who's Got the Horse?
7 June 2005 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Rex, a magnificent black stallion, is kidnapped from Sujan where he is revered as a God horse. Crawford, crooked sportsman, is the man behind the kidnapping and plans to sell Rex to the highest bidder, but the horse escapes into the wild. Rex encounters Rinty, a homeless German shepard, and the two animals become inseparable pals with Rinty saving Rex from falling into the hands of Crawford and his men. Frank Bradley, polo player, also helps our two four legged friends out, while Wheeler, former henchman of Crawford left in Sujan to die, aids Pasha in returning Rex to his homeland, but Wheeler has other ideas as well. The serial is really basic in many aspects such as script, directing, and pacing. Woods is his usual mean self and does well in his performance, despite the script not letting him expand on the role. The script gets really repetitive after the fourth chapter with Rex getting kidnapped or obtained by someone, which also leads to some unimaginative cliffhangers, but the serial is fun at times and never boring. Rating, based on serials, 5.
