Audience Reviews for Return to Snowy River


This sequel of The Man from Snowy River is so impressive that possesses every essential characteristic of the first film; sensationally beautiful cinematography, a stunning focus of the Australian high country, the second most impressive footage of horses ever filmed. Director Geoff Burrowes has done a superb job with this film so are two actors, Tom Burlinson and Sigrid Thornton, who returned to their characters. I really liked the horse scenes that makes you go exciting like a roller coaster ride.

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer

Nowhere near as good as the first movie.

Anthony Valletta

Super Reviewer


Not as good as the first (replacing Douglas with Dennehy was stupid move) but it does continue the love story.
