It teeters between pleasantly generic film biography and rank manipulation.

This horse-sports-opera boasts all the ingredients for a successful run.

Celebrates greatness on four legs with a decent--if not record-breaking--amount of light entertainment. What're the odds?

Easily as good of a film as "Seabiscuit," and family-friendly.

Let down by a shallow, bland treatment and characters that feign depth and go nowhere. In this category, it is still 'Seabiscuit' by a mile.

A heavily contrived and overlong account of the greatest US horse in racing history, Disney's Secretariat still has a lot going for it as an old-fashioned family drama.

Secretariat is a good-natured but thunderingly clichéd triumph-against-the-odds tale, almost every line a cornball aphorism about following your heart.

Like Secretariat himself, the film is a glossy, big-hearted slow- starter, but lacks his ability to power home ahead of the competition.

I'm sick of the simpering American morons who lap up this rubbish.

With its linear structure, nostalgic glow and distinct lack of surprises, Secretariat seems to have wandered into cinemas after leaving its TV movie hitching post.

Just when we thought John Malkovich didn't have another semi-intentionally deranged performance left in him, he has come storming back with another uproarious turn...

I think this is one of the year's most enjoyable family films.

Despite a decent performance from Lane as the homespun trainer, Secretariat is more blind alley than Blind Side.

This tale of wealth, horse-breeding and good old Christian faith is just about as hammy as a study of commodified horse sex can be.

Secretariat's story still feels untold.
