Hidalgo

4/5 stars

This movie was based on the life of Frank Hopkins, a Pony Express courier and long distance horse race legend. he and his horse, Hidalgo, travel to Saudi Arabia to participate in a race across the desert. Most participants laugh at his horse, a wild Mustang, from their purebred Arabian mounts. Hopkins finds himself not just fighting to win the race (and survive the race) but caught up in Arabian politics.

I quite enjoyed the movie. While I knew that Hopkins had to survive. I was still caught up in the action.

Funny comment from couple behind us: “They really used a lot of horses in this movie.” Duh. Really?
