Pretty Good Scenery & Photography; Story Doesn't Fulfil Its Potential
22 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

There is some pretty good scenery and photography in this movie, but the story never really fulfils its potential, and this keeps it from being anything more than average. It's not unpleasant, just bland, with characters and potential conflicts that are not fully developed.

Most of it is about Ted, a rodeo hand, and 'Bess', a wild horse that he has tamed and trained. Ted is mostly likable, but pretty dull, and most of the other characters are stock figures. There are really only a couple of scenes that aren't routine.

On the other hand, there is some good scenery, with plenty of outdoor shots, and a couple good views of groups of wild horses roaming free. The color photography is good, and has held up well. It makes it a mostly pleasant movie to watch, but it just never really gets going.
