War Horse is a long, boring and vaguely insulting mess that offers up the depressing sight of an infinitely talented filmmaker simply going through the motions.

A little bit of sentiment is one thing, Steven. But this is simply labourious.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Unfortunately it has the director's usual heavy-handed and overstated ploys.

Sacramento News & Review

... the movie is easy to admire. Adoration, however, never comes. For that, something's missing.

Reel Film Reviews

...a sporadically electrifying yet terminally uneven (and overlong) piece of work.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

A grand spectacle of a movie, War Horse' is an epic about loyalty, friendship and the horrors of war. Based on a marvelous book, Spielberg delivers a sweeping adventure that will become an instant classic among those who love old-fashioned storytelling.

Fan The Fire

If it lags in the middle, it can be forgiven, because it has a warm heart despite its inconsistencies

Audiences will either be overwhelmed by the impact or find themselves fighting to resist it.

The Ooh Tray

The movie's pastoral values bypass the head to massage the heart. The cracker-barrel philosophy, the piety, the unreconstructed belief in heroism and gallantry, it's all so reassuring; it's like the second half of the 20th century never happened.

Scene-Stealers.com

A couple battle sequences are filmed with great care, but War Horse is still essentially a trite, manipulative soap opera run through the lens of World War I to give it a lot of historic and artistic sensibility.

Movie Talk

Despite a thoroughbred cast, War Horse falls short because it tries too hard to tug our heartstrings.

Eye for Film

War Horse is not so much a story of universal suffering told through the eyes of a horse but a Boys' Own ripping yarn. It is a good yarn well paced and well made.

Steven Spielberg directs this handsome Oscar-tipped film version of the heart-rending tale from a script by Richard Curtis and Lee Hall.

After the ho-hum that was Tintin, this serves as a reminder of why Spielberg is considered one of the great visionary storytellers.

War Horse is perfect material for the world's foremost purveyor of cinematic sentimentality. Think ET with hooves.

War Horse is a pre-packaged brand, rather than a movie.

Financial Times

We are marched through cloying kidult rhetoric for 150 minutes, ending with the inevitable pull on our hankie pocket, as wheedling as a beggar pulling on our change pocket. The only difference: the beggar is more deserving.

Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

This is a soaring, sprawling epic that harks back to the dream-big visionaries of old Hollywood: John Ford, David Lean, David O. Selznick.

Alan Jones
Radio Times

A uniquely moving odyssey that subtly outlines both the suffering of the First World War and the humanity amid so much loss of life.
