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

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

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.

Less than satisfying.
January 1, 2000
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.

The sad scenes were beyond intense and far too long.
