Well-paced but one-dimensional
28 May 2000 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

This was sufficiently intriguing to have me navigate for a reminder as to what really did happen to Shergar (so far as is known). Well, the probable answer is that he was shot within days by the kidnappers because they couldn't control him. But for those who hang on to more imaginative solutions to their mysteries, or who just want to see a film about an orphan boy who loves horses, with some tight-corner escape sequences, a nice old man who muses on the meaning of life, a bit of love interest and yards of Irish scenery (shot on the Isle of Man, it seems)accompanied by the usual sort of Hollywood-Irish music, here you are then, watch and enjoy. I doubt if it was worth roping in heavyweights like Holm and Rourke to make it, though.
