If you take it as historical fact, it's got a world of problems. But if you're just in the mood to be entertained, it can be a decent piece of Saturday afternoon escapism.

The event around which the movie revolves is a desert mirage, since there is no record of any such race ever being staged. Nonetheless, those able to ignore this outrageous historical distortion might enjoy this triumph of an underdog aganst the odds.

Hidalgo" only stumbles when it tries to be something its not (an Indiana Jones type of action film).
