Critic Reviews of "War Horse"
Time OutJanuary 10, 2012
Spielberg still manages to surprise and impress.
Globe and MailJanuary 06, 2012
The trouble here is not so much that Spielberg's film staunchly insists on finding a happy ending even in the calamity of the First World War, but that he slathers it on so thick and leaves so soft an impression.
NewsdayJanuary 05, 2012
The material sometimes feels oversugared, though it's also guaranteed to raise a lump in your throat.
SlateDecember 31, 2011
Tthe images have what I can only describe as a wonderful texture. They also have intense color: deep gemlike greens and reds, with black shadows out of an old master painting.
New York Magazine/VultureDecember 30, 2011
Amid the incomprehensible slaughter, it's a horse that reminds these warriors of their humanity.
Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
Etched in the simple, bold strokes of a passed-down fable. Resistance is futile.
FoxNews.comSeptember 25, 2013
Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" is an imperfect film, but certainly is a beautiful one.
TrespassSeptember 08, 2013
They will keep trying and trying until only the blackest of hearts are left un-moved. I guess I should hand in my organ donation card because I clearly don't have a heart judging from the dismissive reaction I had to this patently artificial film.
The Patriot LedgerMay 25, 2013
For sublime equine you'd be hard pressed to find a better mount than 'War Horse.'
ScreenRantOctober 02, 2012
War Horse offers a number of memorable moments both tragic and profound.
TheShiznit.co.ukSeptember 24, 2012
It's about as manipulative a film has Steven Spielberg has ever made - a movie that's been custom-designed from the ground up to play a sad harp solo on the heartstrings; a story cynically told to invoke as many tears as possible.
