Very unrealistic and artificial. Felt many scenes were forced to evoke emotional response from the audience. Speilberg doesn't have any fresh concepts it seems to be.
I thought it was beautifully done and packed an emotional punch, master manipulator Mr. S is. Having seen and greatly admired the London theatre production which the script is partly based on I knew the various turns the story would take so had no issue at all with the structure - I just admired the way Spielberg translated it to the big screen. The way the horse was trained to perform Joey was remarkable and the Somme sequences were utterly brilliant (no surprises there). Personally I'd rather watch it again than Saving Private Ryan, but I'm sure that's just me.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
