Disappointing
Verified purchase
I just wanted to see a nice horse movie, to cheer me up. So far, KK should have played the woman's father, not husband - he's way too old. The supposedly wild horse is not acting very wild horse-like. Why they chose to depict growing wheatgrass by taking fully grown sections of it, and sticking clumps of it into plowed pasture is so inaccurate - it's laughable. I keep trying to find good, wholesome movies to watch that aren't filled with violence, sex and foul language. The problem is, so many of these are not worth watching. I wish there were more family movies that are put out by the major studios and well-produced - but they only seem to want to smother us with depictions of all the nastiest and vilest things in the world. It's very discouraging.

Painful, Very Phony Movie - Don't watch it!
Verified purchase
I was very surprised to see how terribly terrible this movie was. I expected way more of out Kris K. I am not a country movie fan anyway, but the music in this movie was nothing short of "painful".
All acting is bad, over exaggerated; sounds way too scripted; predictable; whiny & so on. Maybe it is because I have watched quite a few horse based movies lately, but this one is really bad.
I think the scenes "for me" that were unbearable to watch was when Kris & daughter were riding their horses they were riding mechanical horses against a moving green leaf background. I am sure neither can actually ride and it looks soooo phony. It might be good to watch the movie if only to fast forward it to those parts - LOL - then it could be a 2-5 minute comedy movie. It is FREE on Amazon Prime, so that explains why it is so horrible.

Storyline was cheesy and fake
Verified purchase
I like Kris Kristofferson as a rule, but not this rule. The story was unbelievable even as a fantasy. The racing scene was the worst could not even cheer on the horses. The riding was fake and a gallup at best. You do not take an expensive race horse that is in line for the Kentucky Derby and race it on hard untreated surface, talk about foundering and ruining a possible great horse that will do it. I got about 20 minutes into the movie and was fast forwarding to a new scene in hopes the movie would get better. It did not, it actually got more unbelievable. The bond between the teenagers was not believable, they appeared to barely like each other much less be in love. Since I skipped about an hour of the movie, by skipping forward. The 30 minutes I did put into the movie was still waste of time. Two stars he was a pretty horse.

If twelve monkeys typing on twelve typewriters for twelve days wrote a script...
Verified purchase
Bad things: Script is complete drivel. Obviously written by someone who knows nothing about horses, dialogue, story construction, creating believable characters, or basic logic. There are numerous examples of no one paying any attention to continuity. The race is badly shot (and you have to really try to mess up filming running horses), at no time do the horses and riders look like they're actually racing, and it's painfully obvious that, in the riding closeups, the principals are on mechanical horses. K.K. is too old, but honestly, that's the least of the sins committed here. Good things: The horse is pretty. The actor who plays the mother gives a master class on how to do a decent job acting even when you have crappy lines.

Why do older men keep playing husband roles instead of father roles?
Verified purchase
The story is good, fairly predictable though. The reason for the low rating is I get tired of men that should be a woman’s father playing their husband. Predictably men crafted. Kris Kristofferson looks like he’s about to keel over about 1/2 dozen times. Father not husband, grandfather to the kid not father!

High Stakes, High Values Family Movie
Verified purchase
This is an uplifting family movie with good values for all ages. The cinematography is good and the horse Midnight is beautiful.

Kind of hokey
Verified purchase
Several riding/race scenes are unrealistic, adding to the hokeyism.

Old Man On A Horse
Verified purchase
Very Disappointed in this 1. Most of the movie shows an old man ( not the young lady shown in the trailer ) on Midnight the horse. This 1 is a very far cry to the Excellent Flicka 2. 1 Star from me
