Cute
2 October 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Flash is a lightweight, but entertaining enough, little family film. Lucas Black is appealing enough as Conner, but his southern accent sounds phony. It's too much. For once, Shawn Toovey (annoying Brian from Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman) manages not to drive me crazy, playing Conner's rich friend Tad.

Brian Kerwin is always perfectly tolerable, although here he disappears after the first 30-40 minutes, not to resurface until the end. He is fine as Conner's dad. Ellen Burstyn is cute as Conner's grandma, Laura, although what an actress of her caliber is doing in a flick like this is beyond me.

Of course, most of what transpires after the first part of Flash is highly improbable, but you do find yourself rooting for the determined Conner and his horse. This is a good, clean movie for kids, but as an adult, I doubt I'd sit through it again.
