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.

It's too bad that Steven Spielberg's latest film War Horse doesn't quite live up to the example set by its majestic titular character.

Its epic length is the one thing you're guaranteed to take from the experience.

A two-and-a-half hour sightseeing tour through David O. Selznick's junk drawer.

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.

War Horse is a fine film, helmed by a fine filmmaker all too aware of how to pull the audience's strings.

"How Green Was My Valley, How Smart Was My Horse." [Blu-ray]

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.

It is a vividly detailed depiction of a time, a place and a conflict.

In tone and in the way that the narrative unfolds, it's a throwback to a more romantic era of filmmaking-when making feel-good movies wasn't anything to apologize for.
March 22, 2012
If it doesn't quite manage to tap the well of emotion that this type of film aims to access, it's because of problems inherent to the basic pitch, rather than the execution.

After the recent disappointment of a few donkey movies, director Steven Spielberg gallops back onto the big screen with a cinematic stallion in War Horse.

[Not] entirely satisfying … Somehow, though, the sum of the parts are more than the whole … It is a film of a kind we don't see any more, that it would be good to see more of.

If any movie released in 2011 screams, "Oscar Bait!," louder than Steve Spielberg's War Horse than I haven't seen it.
January 26, 2012
In spite of a few moving scenes, it's labored, too long and too gorgeously shot.
January 26, 2012
War Horse is a long, boring and vaguely insulting mess that offers up the depressing sight of an infinitely talented filmmaker simply going through the motions.
January 24, 2012
A little bit of sentiment is one thing, Steven. But this is simply labourious.
January 21, 2012
Unfortunately it has the director's usual heavy-handed and overstated ploys.
