    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie is so unbelievably predictable. I kid you not, before the movie I guessed the ENTIRE plot when i heard it was about a girl and a race horse. It is so cliche that I guessed each sunset scene, the part where the bad guy tries to buy the horse, the horse being announced last in the choosing of horses to race, and the hopeless race that they suddenly won. I do not believe this is a true story. It's a load of crap. It is an abomination of cinema and pathetic. Expand

    I enjoyed watching this movie, but I wish there were more progression with the horse and the characters before going into the very best race (such as the true steel movie, where there were many challenges, where they start losing and win later).

  1. Recycles just about every sentimental ploy and cliche from a raft of horse racing movies.

    Modestly engaging but mostly unexceptional.

    There are no surprises in Dreamer--except that for all its visible and unselfconscious schmaltz, it's actually pretty enjoyable.
