Storyline

Rich gambler Barney Ingram's white prize stallion Cloverdale III is abducted by creditor Emmett Fallon, but he hits a school-bus and the horse ran off. Schoolkids Lucas Mitchell and Stephanie Ward believe "Emmett's" horse, find it and make a deal. It gets stabled with rich Madame Rene, renamed Lightning, but will be trained by the girl who dreams of a riding career. Barney's gambling debts meanwhile catch up, so he can't enjoy his much younger, ignorant lady-friend. Written by KGF Vissers

looks like a pump, works like a sneaker!
6 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give this movie a 4 of ten and I'm being pretty generous. This was done to capitalize on the success of the Black Stallion movies and series with Mickey Rooney. Unfortunately its just not very good. Isabel Lorca is gorgeous girl but she couldn't act her way out of a paper sack! Rooney is OK, but he plot is really poorly thought out. Very little of this movie feels real, it feels like play someone was staging on Saturday afternoon. The most believable moments are between Stephanie (Lorca) and her boyfriend on the bus! Even the climax feels contrived and manipulative. If your'e looking for a decent family flick for a rainy afternoon, you could do worse, but not by much.

Oddly rated "pg" for some profanity and adult situations that seem rather at odds with the rest of the film.
