SPIRIT: STALLION OF THE CIMARRON (2002 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Stars ììì

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron—contains beautiful animated artwork and relies on a basic, good storyline. It’s a superior story and ideal for younger audiences who love horses. The music has strong enough appeal that it can stand alone without a movie to support it.

Storyline

The wild mustang, Spirit (voice of Matt Damon), due to a strongly curious nature, experiences two entirely different civilizations—white, military culture and Native American culture. His long journey crisscrosses between the two cultures and finally climaxes in freedom.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Directors Kelly Asbury and Lorna Cook for their directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Max Howard for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: The Colonel (voice of James Cromwell), Little Creek (voice of Daniel Studi), Sergeant Adams (voice of Chopper Bernet), Murphy/Railroad Foreman (voice of Jeff LeBeau), Soldier (voice of John Rubano), Bill (voice of Richard McGonagle), Joe (voice of Matt Levin), Pete (voice of Adam Paul), and Jake (voice of Robert Cait).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This is a good film with a predictable storyline; but there are films like Disney’s ‘Tarzan,’ ‘Brother Bear,’ or Antz that may be better picks for the adult/child share.
