Nice charming movie
27 September 2006 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

The first comment I want to make is that one of the leads John Arledge who plays the young trainer is the spitting image of Steve Martin. With that out of the way the movie was very charming. From the title you would think it was about people revolting, but no it is about 2 animals. A half Shepard half wolf Lightning and a horse Warrior. The dog and the young pony bond but people are afraid that the wolf half of the dog will harm the animal so part of the early part of the movie is about Lightning being forced off the ranch and fending it on his own. Don't worry he makes out OK. Meanwhile back at the ranch Warrior turns out to be a first class racer and someone is out to steal him since the owner will not give him up. And now the action starts. Lightning gets a wind of something not being right and discovers his Pal trying to get way from the thieves. I am not going to spoil what happens. But I was impressed. The movie is a precursor to all of the Disney movies like Homeward Bound. But without all of the mushy sentimentality. There was a little side story about the trainer and the rich ranch owner daughter. But nothing distracting. The charm of seeing the 2 stars interact is priceless. The last scene of the movie Warrior sees his friend Lightning and dumps the jockey on his back to go play. I loved it.
