War Horse film is a drama movie inspired from the the children’s novel War Horse written by the British author Michael Morpurgo in 1982. The movie displays the journey of an English horse in Europe before and during the First World War in order to illustrate the strong relationship between the horse and its owner. The film was professionally directed by Steven Speilberg who was successful to attract the attention of the young audiences during the 146 minutes of the film. War Horse was released in Dec 2011 by Walt Disney Pictures.It has achieved high revenues estimated by 167.80 million US dollars according to Wikipedia.

Although the story of the film is not real, it gives a brief introduction to how the Europeans were living, clothing, farming and dealing with each other before and during the First World War. In contrast, the main content of the film has nothing new to add to the attendants. The movie was lacking integrity in some scenes especially when the transitions between them are not related to each other. The visual clearance and the picture quality are amazing, but the usage of many sound effects became annoying in some parts of the movie. Thus some people did not like it. However, the young people who loves guns and bombs sounds are enjoying it. According to the New York Times, the film was nominated for more than five different rewards. One of the rewards includes picture quality.

In summary, the film was interesting for me because I like war movies in general despite the fact that it has nothing new to be viewed. Thus, I don’t recommend it for those who are looking for something new. In addition, it is not recommended for children’s due to the violence scenes which shows corpses.
