"Flash" is an engaging, exciting horse movie.
9 September 2004 | by (Cullman, Alabama) – See all my reviews

As a mature person of over 40, a horse-lover, owner, and rider, I highly recommend this movie not only to horse lovers but to anyone. The leading man, or boy, holds his own very well with both the acting and the riding. He is perfectly cast and his accent is excellent and very natural (I also live in the deep south).

This story of a boy who becomes homeless and rides his horse through several states to be reunited with his father seems unbelievable, but the film was inspired by a true story. And if I wasn't personally familiar with all types of horse owners I would say that the "evil" character was a shallow stereotype, but sadly, people like him exist all over the country.

The movie is well made, entertaining, very suspenseful, and quite heart-wrenching. I'm trying to find a copy to purchase because it's a movie I'd like to be able to watch over and over. It is suitable for all ages: a rare and precious gem, these days.
