DreamWorks SKG really put a huge effort on making this movie possible, the wilderness of the U.S is well presented here, the story of it is thrilling and exciting, the music soundtrack matches the movie perfectly since Bryan Adams and Hans Zimmer were involved.
I watched this as a kid in DVD formats and I'm still watching it as a young man.
It was a huge part of my childhood, I recommend everyone to watch it.
One of the best movies I have ever watched. The soundtrack and animation are beautiful. The drawings come alive on the screen and the story is an emotional rollercoaster. A masterpiece of a movie. Must watch.
I don’t understand why some people are hating on this movie. Although there is little dialogue, you get a break from the annoyingly scripted, cheesy, movies and you get to watch for yourself this story and journey unfold. The simple narration is because it is in fact a children’s movie people. This movie is heart wrenching and for some reason people don’t like that. If you want to watch a dull movie with a predictable plot just go watch the Lego movie or something. This movie is a classic and not to mention the soundtrack is amazing. I think some people just don’t like Bryan Adams. Those who appreciate music can agree that regardless of Bryan, you can’t deny that Hans Zimmer did an amazing job with the musical choreography that makes this story come alive. Children also get a brief history lesson on the American Indian (Native American) War. While it is very stereotypical, they at least get a peak into what another culture might look like. This movie is emotional, intense, and heartfelt. I watched it many times as a kid and would still watch it now.
Had the film been a short/30-1 hour with no dialogue it could have been amazing but the pacing, like of character, and presentation issues hold it back from being spectacular. That being said some great animation and nice show don’t tell moments help bring you into the world of the film making it enjoyable to watch at least once. This isn’t one of my favorite 2-D animated films from Dreamworks but it is still entertaining enjoyable enough to watch at least once. It’s a rent. Some may like/love it while others may not. As for me its alright not a bad film but at the same time nothing spectacular.
En voyant Spirit, on se dit que l'ensemble aurait pu Ãªtre sublime, s'il n'avait pas ÃtÃ quelque peu bÃ¢clÃ sur certains points. A commencer par un scÃnario certes sympathique et moralisateur, mais les scÃ¨nes s'enchaÃnent trop vite, empÃªchant de s'attacher Ã la majoritÃ des personnages et Ã l'histoire elle-mÃªme. De plus, ce film abuse excessivement des dÃcors et effets numÃriques. C'est bien dommage car cela gÃ¢che des animations en dessin superbes que les nouveaux films Disney ne pourraient renier. Il n'y a qu'Ã voir les expressions de chaque animal, arrivant Ã parler avec le visage et non la voix (et oui, point d'animaux qui parlent!). Mais le meilleur que l'on peut retenir de ce Spirit, c'est bien l'ambiance musicale, tout simplement exceptionnelle : l'association des thÃ¨mes de Hans Zimmer et des chansons de Bryan Adams fait des ravages et ce durant l'intÃgralitÃ du film. En somme, Spirit reste un dessin animÃ de bonne facture, mais qui mÃritait bien plus.
impeccable production as is already the custom of DreamWorks. Unfortunately the script has several problems, such as conveniences and one-dimensional antangonist, it leaves something to be desired, but the message is good
