      Critics Consensus

      The scenery looks great, but this overstuffed horse story contains too much cheese.

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader This big-budget western bears a striking resemblance to the recent Tom Cruise vehicle The Last Samurai, though it's more fun and less pretentious. Jun 29, 2022 Full Review Antonia Quirke London Evening Standard Sharif grounds the silliness a little. When he looks across the desert with those eyes that have always hinted that hard weather is coming, everybody else rushing around the set looks overdressed for a costume party. Dec 18, 2017 Full Review Nell Minow Common Sense Media Formulaic, overly simple, too violent for tweens. Rated: 3/5 Dec 24, 2010 Full Review Cory Woodroof For the Win (USA Today) While the film might be more fiction than fact, it’s still a great experience for those who love a good, adventurous horse-racing movie. May 19, 2023 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List Although some of the colonial stylization is impressive, this Mortensen post-"Rings" vehicle is pure horse neck and camel meat. Rated: 2/5 Apr 18, 2019 Full Review Mark Steyn The Spectator The film itself can't seem to decide whether it's a Saturday morning serial for the kids, a new Indiana Jones, or something with a bit more dramatic heft Feb 1, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Carter C From beautiful settings, to cinematography, to plot, to actors, this movie is an emotional and inspiring adventure, even if it’s not completely accurate or if it has incredibly slow pacing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review Christina A I love the cinematography and the interpretation is decent even though it's not quite what really happened. But I like Viggo and Omar in this and as a movie it's entertaining despite whatever drawbacks it has. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Adrian B The film was good fun to watch in spite of all imperfections. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Edgar M Siempre me ha gustado mucho esta película. Me parece muy emotiva y con buena acción. La he visto muchas veces. Y muy buenas las actuaciones.
