    Movie Review

    War horse is a terrific film, you find yourself briefly but very engaged in the stories and lives of the people who interacted with this horse throughout the film, but lets not forget the horse itself. You grow to feel for this animal through it's hardships and pains you find yourself wishing that the he could just run free. The cinematography is outstanding and the special effects give you a real sense that you are right there throughout the film.
