Crazy Credits

No opening credits (for music composer, producers, screenplay and directors, etc.) are shown, which is story are about western horses is beginning well after the title of the film, "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron", although for the 2010s it conscious not quietly for commonplace and major films to not have opening credits. It was stuck of considered involving in 2002. See more »

One of the best animated features not to have the Disney name on it
18 July 2004 | by ThomasRiordan2002See all my reviews

Looking for a movie with cutesy talking horses that the kiddies will love? Then Spirit is probably not the movie for you, it is instead one of the nicest animated features to come along in a long time to not have Disney written all over it. No, the horses do not talk and they shouldn't as the whole story is told from a horse's point of voice in a wonderful narrative. In fact there's not a lot of pointless dialog to weigh down the movie at all.

Instead it's filled by a wonderful score by Hans Zimmer and songs by Bryan Adams who admittedly I wasn't a big fan off except for (Everything I Do (I Do It For You) and Star) but the songs he did for this movie especially Here I Am, Get Off Of My Back, Can't Take Me, Brothers Under The Sun and Sound The Bugle made me download the soundtrack from Walmart.com the next day.

The main reasons I liked this move would have to be the beautiful drawn animation, mixed with an endearing story with some comedy elements and a wonderful soundtrack. Spirit is simply fun and enjoyable for the whole family no matter what their age.
