    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.
  2. Plenty of visuals but little of the rhythm, flow or characterizations that made the earlier film an instant children's classic.

    There are two good things to say about The Young Black Stallion" It's beautifully shot, and it's short.
  4. 60
    Joins the small pool of films that have dared to use Imax to tell a story.
  5. Designed to maximize the visual opportunities for Imax's cameras even as it minimizes the dramatic conflicts that make for a satisfying moviegoing experience.
  6. 50
    A visual treat diminished by lifeless dialogue and self-conscious acting.
  7. Yet another 'Stallion'? Talk about beating a dead horse.
