Compare to the 1968 film The Charge of the Light Brigade an infinitely better film.

if animals do not show bravery and courage why do they award the Dicken medal ? and if you state horses dont show courage you should have been back at the yard when Sefton returned from the carnage in the Park.

It'll be showing on Sky Movies Box Office from Monday. Not sure how it'll translate to the smaller screen but glad I saw it at the cinema. As I don't have Sky, it'll be a while before I find out.

I could point out that the porn industry employs a lot of people. Merely employing people doesn't male War Horse a "good" film. It's a Spielberg film and you get what you expect. Well made, certainly, but lacking any soul or heart and covered with the usual Speilberg layer upon layer of saccharine. If you like it, fine, but it's a heartless, cynical exploitation movie.
What should also be remembered is that this film was responsible for creating a fair number of jobs here in the UK. It was shot entirely on location and in studios here, and the post-production was done here, all utilising a fair amount of British actors, technicians, crew and talent. Surely this is a good thing. I didn't work on the film myself, but would have loved to have done so !

As a result of War Horse, I have noticed that my friends, neighbours and family,who previously had never really understood my keen interest in the Great War, are now asking questions not only about the animals but of the War itself. Now thats not a bad thing.
