Trivia

During the opening sequence, the cloud formation behind the eagle looks like a herd of horses. Also, when Spirit is chasing the eagle a while later, his shadow and the eagle's merge together, making Spirit appear to have wings. See more »

Goofs

When escaping from the soldiers' compound, as Little Creek stops the Colonel from shooting Spirit, Spirit's reins alternate being on his neck and over his head between shots. See more »

Quotes

Spirit: And so I grew from colt to stallion, as wild and as reckless as thunder over the land. Racing with the eagle, soaring with the wind. Flying? There were times I believed I could.

Not bad, not bad at all...
5 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Well, what can I say, this movie really got to me, it's not so bad, as many say, I really loved it, although the idea seems so simple, and rather boring, it isn't. First of all I enjoyed the soundtrack (Bryan Adams), it really goes with the movie. Second the simple story, and the drama of Spirit gets your attention. One thing I like the most is that they didn't give the stallion a human voice to interact with the other horses, it makes the movie more realistic, not many animations seem realistic now do they ?, but... I don't know, making animals talk is just so... lame.

One of the most beautiful animations of 2002 in my opinion, I recommend it to everyone, not just the kids :), because it is very relaxing.
