A Nice Film, But Dull & Preachy
15 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What started out as an exciting adventure story wound up being nothing but a preachy environmental film. You could have almost made this into a documentary with the obvious agenda of the filmmakers. Hey, I'm all for keeping the beautiful and helping the horses, too, but that's that what this is advertised.

The film begins with some beautiful Colorado scenery and an intense, intriguing scene of a small lane scaring two kids and some wild horses. It quickly levels off into a boring "Save The Wild Mustangs" environmental message and the film totally loses steam by the halfway point. By then, it should have been "Save This Film."

At least, unlike most films in the early '70s, it's a nice movie with no objectionable language. It wasn't horrible; it just needed some punching up after that good start.
