I just saw this movie, and, throughout the whole movie I didn't know what was going on. It seemed like a long book turned into a 2 hour movie. I suppose if you really like horses you might enjoy this film. But if you know much about movies, it's an awful movie. The scene changes were all pretty random, and what wasn't random was extremely predictable. While watching this movie I kept thinking "Wow, this is the trailer, except it's 2 hours long, and explains a couple things." Until the credits rolled I didn't even know the characters' names, aside from a couple of them (Flicka, and Howard). In my opinion, there wasn't quite enough explaining. And I didn't really care about any of the characters.
