As Michelle Payne, [Teresa] Palmer does a credible job with her performance, which solidly carries the whole movie ... Ride Like a Girl is absolutely an inspiring film, but compared to 1944's National Velvet, it just won't be considered a classic.

Far be it for me to churlishly point out too many deficiencies - some slack editing, some iffy dialogue and some far too glorious (CGI-infected) sunsets; this is a rousing crowd-pleaser that earns its box office success.
