There's nothing thrilling or new about the work here, but accomplished it is.

Spirit is smarter than your average cartoon because it doesn't try to joke around with a host of annoying talking animals.
June 24, 2006
There's not much of a story, the whole thing's a bit superficial, and there's little to laugh at, but it's still a refreshing change from the norm.
November 4, 2002
An exciting and exquisitely rendered film in which the horse goes through as many adventures and perils as Indiana Jones on a good day.
July 20, 2002
A welcome family film that extols noble values and offers first-class animation.
July 11, 2002
The dismal middleweight power-ballads served up by Bryan Adams could be described as balls-aching...
July 1, 2002
DreamWorks is to be commended for attempting to develop a form that, with the inauguration of the Oscar for best animated feature, can only benefit from such tinkering.

Rather exciting, rendered in a bright sunset palette and a mixture of expressive, boldly drawn traditional animation and fluid computer-generated imagery.
May 24, 2002
As animation increasingly emphasizes the computer and the cool, this is a film that takes a stand in favor of tradition and warmth.
May 24, 2002
The movie's big action scenes ... make you forget you're even watching animation.
May 24, 2002
A ripping yarn with memorable characters.
May 24, 2002
A movie that will touch the hearts of both children and adults, as well as bring audiences to the edge of their seats.
May 24, 2002
It is perhaps Spirit's greatest achievement that the horses upstage the human actors, but it's also its greatest weakness. The human characters have no depth or personality, but are rather completely forgettable, stiff stereotypes.
May 24, 2002
Adams' hoarse anthems become a betrayal of this horse opera's true potential; fortunately, there is enough fine achievement here to make the film worth seeing.
May 24, 2002
A mishmash that is sometimes moving, sometimes absurd and most of the time just oddly off balance.
May 24, 2002
A cartoon that's truly cinematic in scope, and a story that's compelling and heartfelt -- even if the heart belongs to a big, four-legged herbivore.
May 24, 2002
Not quite as miraculous as its DreamWorks makers would have you believe, but it more than adequately fills the eyes and stirs the emotions.
May 24, 2002
A beautifully rendered but unimaginatively plotted cartoon about settlers, Native Americans and the horses caught in between.
May 24, 2002
A strange, often intriguing animated film for children and young adults that takes a lot of chances and only occasionally stumbles.
