There are times when War Horse seems like an odd mash-up of sensibilities, but overall, for horse lovers who can handle war movies, or for war movie lovers who can handle horse stories, it's a welcome Christmas present.

War Horse is a moving tribute not just to the unsung heroes of the First World War -- horses -- but also the men who bravely fought alongside them.
December 6, 2018
One of Spielberg's most inspiring, enjoyable efforts of the last twenty years.
August 29, 2018
War Horse is a highly emotive, undeniably sentimental film, but for those who have been raised on Spielberg's canon, this sentimentality is something to be relished and enjoyed.

Extremely unsatisfying ending. And not better than The Black Stallion.

As engaging as "War Horse" is, and it is engaging, Spielberg oftentimes resorts to big, John Williams' music-enhanced, wide-screen moments to manipulate the emotion that the story should have been able to elicit on its own.
September 6, 2017
War Horse has an unapologetically nostalgic feel which will appeal to an older audience.
June 29, 2017
War Horse is about war, and it is about the ways that animals can teach us to be more human. It's too long, but it is inspiring.
May 3, 2015
Etched in the simple, bold strokes of a passed-down fable. Resistance is futile.
September 25, 2013
Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" is an imperfect film, but certainly is a beautiful one.
May 25, 2013
For sublime equine you'd be hard pressed to find a better mount than 'War Horse.'
October 2, 2012
War Horse offers a number of memorable moments both tragic and profound.
September 18, 2012
Leave it to the great Steven Spielberg to be able to inject a great deal of heart into a story about a boy and his horse.
August 25, 2012
Its epic length is the one thing you're guaranteed to take from the experience.
August 17, 2012
While made with great technical proficiency, War Horse is determinedly old-fashioned in how Spielberg tells the story, which is a fitting creative strategy considering that the film studies the convergence of the old and the modern.

God bless Steven Spielberg, who knows how to push my buttons.
May 8, 2012
War Horse is a fine film, helmed by a fine filmmaker all too aware of how to pull the audience's strings.
April 6, 2012
"How Green Was My Valley, How Smart Was My Horse." [Blu-ray]
April 3, 2012
What is a simple, World War I-era tale of a boy and his horse on the page and stage becomes bloated in Spielberg & Co.'s hands. Benefits from stunning cinematography and an excellent supporting cast.
March 23, 2012
It is a vividly detailed depiction of a time, a place and a conflict.
