    Life lessons abound in Buck, most of them tied to endlessly reiterated comparisons between man and horse.

    A truly inspiring emotional movie about a fascinating individual. Pulls at the heartstrings without pandering and is a nice little piece of Americana as well. Full Review »

    Buck is someone we all should learn from, and a remarkable man. This movie doesn't quite do him justice. Unfortunately, this movie could have been culled down into an hour tv documentary and probably have been just as good. The producers may have borrowed from Buck a little too much and failed to plum the depths of the man, instead merely letting us hear a whisper of him. Full Review »

    I thought the movie was very real. Because it was real, it said a lot about the frailties of humans, even the frailties of Buck.
