      Steve D I found it completely ridiculous. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review david f A folk-tale-like film about a child and his bull. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Watching this film today is quite moving, because it has a feeling nowodays films don't have anymore, maybe it's that naive vision on things or maybe hope that everything can always be better! Incredibly well shot & directed, this film is telling the story of a little farm boy in a Mexican Ranch befriending with a fighting bull & trying to save him from the Corida & death! The little boy is very attaching, the sets are beautiful & i'm pretty sure some people will find similarities with War Horse, Spielberg's Epic War film. Wish they could make movies like this again, the pleasure they provide to the viewers are much greater than any films i have seen in the last decade..... everything must go fast, explode or be dark, back then hope, values & hard work were always rewarded.... something has been lost along the way...... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member good family fare not really my cup-o-tea Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Everything fell a little too nicely into place for me, but Jodi Foster is THE vigilante de woman. Watchable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent movie with a slow beginning and a nice ending. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
