Cruel treatment of horses may upset some kids.

This movie might have been more persuasive if the boy had told the story of the horse, instead of the horse telling the story of the boy.

For all its earnest effort and cinematic creativity, the core of this story is hackneyed and tedious.

Sumamente aburrida y con una partitura grandilocuente y melosa que no tiene nada que ver con la historia

Saddled with actor Lukas Haas, who delivers a lifeless first-person-or first-horse-narration.

Running Free is the only evidence anyone will ever need to demonstrate what a ruinous trend wallpapered narration has become.

If you're looking for something child-appropriate that'll actually keep the little darlings awake for two hours straight, you'd do better ... and cheaper ... to just stay at home with the Discovery Channel.

Until we really know what animals are thinking, it's probably best to leave talking animal stories in the care of comedic filmmakers.

Though this scenic equestrian adventure has an great cinematography, an award-winning director, and all the pretty horses, it lacks a single original thought.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Sober and handsomely photographed, this film is sadly undermined by its use of voice-over narration.

Suffering from way too much narration and a plot slower than a Clydesdale, Running Free is more like Trotting Bored.

Saddled with an annoying and extensive narration track, added for fear kids couldn't follow the story without constant guidance.

The human actors are colourless, the pacing lifeless, and the drama stillborn.

The last talking equine, Mr. Ed, at least had enough horse sense to not take himself too seriously.
