Viggo Mortensen & HidalgoAn old-fashioned tale of adventure and courage, this film pits a down-on-his-luck cowboy (Viggo Mortensen as Frank Hopkins) and his un-pedigreed mustang, Hidalgo, against a hostile desert environment, the purest-blooded Arabian racehorses, and their riders, some of whom are determined to win at any cost.

Film Review

Though the story is implausible in many scenes, the movie’s earthy, wholesome values, gorgeous horses, beautiful cinematography, and solid performances by Viggo, Omar Sharif and the rest of the cast make for good family entertainment.
