What the Critics say

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconMost people will enjoy it, as I did.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconWar Horse is a crowd-pleaser, and better than many that bear that name, but it is not representative of the filmmaker in peak form. It's a solid, respectable effort but not a great one.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconWar Horse gets to you. It's one from the heart.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconA completely engaging throwback to the grand epics of yesteryear and the various cinematic tricks and tactics used back then to pull them off in glorious style.

Tomatometer quote iconTechnically superb, proudly sentimental, and unabashedly old-fashioned, War Horse is an emotional drama that tugs the heartstrings with Spielberg's customary flair.
