A Sweet Tribute To Shergar
25 April 2016 | by campo_smokie-citrusSee all my reviews

I liked Shergar and would watch it again. A decent horse movie, not spectacular but good entertainment and a nice reminder of the real Shergar who deserves to be remembered. The story takes place in Ireland so there are plenty of nice scenes of the countryside and local scenes. The horse who plays Shergar is magnificent. There's a typical boy-girl friendship and wise Grandfather. It was nice to see Ian Holm in his character as a tinker. This is based on a true story about a champion racehorse named Shergar who was kidnapped and held for ransom. The film uses that basic unresolved story to underpin this romanticized telling. There are moments of tension and some violence and don't recall any swearing so it's a good movie for anybody. The shots of Shergar are worth watching this for. By all accounts, the real Shergar was as gentle and sweet any horse ever, not to mention a champion.
