  1. Plenty of visuals but little of the rhythm, flow or characterizations that made the earlier film an instant children's classic.
  2. Reviewed by: Scott Brown

    The hoofbeats are seismic, the music is like hot cheese, and the sandy vistas thrill appropriately: It's a perfectly rousing Ben-Her of a centerpiece.
  3. Stallion" has gorgeous cinematography with spectacular landscapes - plus a lazy script, forgettable performances and regrettably uninspired direction.
  4. Does not measure up to its predecessor, but it's child-friendly and lasts only 45 minutes.
  5. 50
    A visual treat diminished by lifeless dialogue and self-conscious acting.
  6. Designed to maximize the visual opportunities for Imax's cameras even as it minimizes the dramatic conflicts that make for a satisfying moviegoing experience.
  7. Yet another 'Stallion'? Talk about beating a dead horse.
