Obvious feel-good movie that is too predictable...
9 February 2003 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 2/9/2003 - 4 out of 10(Dir-Henry Levin): Obvious feel-good movie that is too predictable. This is a heart-warming story of a young Mexican boy who is given a crippled son of a thoroughbred and with an operation becomes one of the fastest horses around. Behind this all is a fight over the horse from the former owner who gave the horse to the boy to it's newly appointment caretakers. The movie is at it's best when it's showing us behind-the-scenes footage of great horse races like the Kentucky Derby and close-ups of an operation that is done on "Royal" Champion to straighten his leg. It's at its worst trying to portray a evil owner(played by Vera Miles) who becomes reconciled with the others in the end(unbelievably so) and puts her totally out of character. A little "too" much feel-good and not enough realism to make for a believable story.
