War Horse (Four Disc Combo: Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy) Review



Synopsis: From legendary director Steven Spielberg comes the epic adventure War Horse, a tale of incredible loyalty, hope, and tenacity. Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play, and set against the sweeping canvas of World War I, this deeply heartfelt story begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and his young trainer Albert. When they’re forced apart by war, we follow Joey’s extraordinary journey as he changes and inspires the lives of everyone he meets. Filled with spectacularly rich visuals — and complete with never-before-seen bonus features — War Horse is a “Genuine movie masterpiece,” (Rex Reed, The New York Observer) and one of the most powerful and moving stories of friendship ever told.

Review: War Horse is an epic film from legendary director Steven Spielberg.  The movie follows the story of Joey the horse as he is passed from person to person in varying levels of panic or calm throughout World Wor 1 and beyond.  The film is spectacular, and although it wasn't advertised well in our opinion, it never once bored or let us down.  Spielberg is, of course, a master at his craft and he can even make the journey of a horse spellbinding.
