Storyline

A prequel to the 1979 classic The Black Stallion--a family drama that presents the horse's adventures with a young girl named Neera, who has been separated from her father in Arabia by WWII. Left alone in the desert, she befriends the wild colt whom she names Shetan. Once reunited with her father, however, Neera remains haunted by the images of the lost horse in the desert--one of a few stallions of legend, rumored to be born of the sands, sired by the night sky, drinkers of the wind. Written by Sujit R. Varma

A visually stunning movie, but then they start to speak...
19 December 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Went and saw the premiere with my kids (both under 7) this week. They thought it was great, and although the run time was a little short for my tastes, it worked out great for their attention spans. My little one seemed a little bored during some of the slower portions.

The film was visually very appealing, the landscape was terrific. The far away shots of the desert were really stunning as well as the race footage. You could almost feel the sand being kicked up during the race scenes. IMAX was a great format to see this in and my kids were in awe of the size of the screen.

That being said, the acting was a bit strained but hey 2 of the 3 main characters were kids and the other was the horse. And while it may be nit picking, how does a 12 year-old girl start a fire all by herself with no tools or supplies?

Anyway, overall a fun experience to take your kids to.
