great story however i thought thr movie suffered due to the miscasting of john malkovich as lucien laurin. lucien laurin was a former jockey (short) with a french canadian accent. malkovich couldn't even pronounce his characrers name in the movie.
Loved, loved, loved the movie! I was blessed to be able to watch the real Secretariat win the Triple Crown. I love me some Secretariat, then and now!
Great family movie. Very inspiring.
If I could I'd give it a ten. Awesome
The real life story was Amazing for sure! Reviews are over qualified for sure but defintely shows there is a lack of good movies out there... The movie is a good movie however in my opinion not worth 5 stars...
We went to this because we love Diane Lane ... usually. She was wasted in this one. The racing footage was exciting, even though we knew the outcomes, but otherwise this flick was pretty lukewarm and pedestrian.
Very well made movie, with great acting from the stars. Great emotion. My wife and I watched the triple crown that this is about and feel that this is a great tribute to the greatest horse ever to run in this event.
Amazing movie. I remember watching the actual race on TV when I was 9 years old. Brought back a lot of memories. Horses are my favorite animal and the movie was absolutely fabulous. The location, the storyline, the actors..amazing!
Great stuff A story with action emotion and very good acting !
The story is well done. In depth details and action is great. Really cool shots of the racing.
Not my favourite, but saved by being a true story. Pretty amazing when you think of it.
I just love this movie and it is the kind of Movie you can show when you have Granny and the kids in the room and not be embarrassed about language. We have seen it 4 times and will watch it again.
I really enjoyed this movie. The acting is very good and I especially like movies about horses including Seabiscuit
I really enjoyed this movie. The acting is very good and I especially like movies about horses.
I really enjoyed this movie because I like movies about animals.
Diane Lane is great in this. It's a great "period" picture too.
Very heartwarming and a great movie for families.
I loved this movie, I love horses. Sea Biscuit was about the horse, Secretariat was about the people around him believed in him. They raised him to be a champion like no other horse ever lived.
Best Movie Ever!
Great movie! I want to see it again.
Absolutely loved this movie!
An absolute 'must see' for horse-lovers everywhere. Stunning photography - you can almost taste the clods of dirt as they're tossed up from the track by the horses' hooves as they round the track! This movie was especially meaningful to me because 2 years ago I rescued a 7 year old Thoroughbred. He was being retired from the track - and headed for the slaughterhouse. It's taken 2 full years to bring him to good health and weight, but it has been a labour of love. His great, great grandfather was none other than Secretariat!
thoroughly enjoyed it, cried and laughted, good movie
Excelent movie, will watch it again.
I loved this movie - what an amazing horse! Will watch it again.
There is nothing more exciting & nail biting than a good horse race. Secretariat provides that excitement. Gives us a lesson in going the last mile to achieve our goals. Diane Lane gave an excellent performance.
Very touching movie, bringing back fond memories of watching the actual races on tv as a child.
What a beautiful story of horse racing legend Secretariat. Would give it more than 5 stars if I could.
EXcellent movie! Very emotional, will watch it again.
Oh my... what a hores!!! I was in the saddle and the race! Fabulous movie... my adrenaline was pumping!!
Great movie. What a feeling it must have been to be there to see this powerful animal run! The only thing that kind of turned me off was hearing John Malkovitch speak French... he sounds NOTHING like a French Canadian. Actually, he speaks Parisian French with a thick English accent...! I really wonder why they didn't consider hiring a good French Canadian actor??? After all, if a French Canadian was good enough to train the greatest horse ever, I don't see why another wouldn't be good enough to play him...!
One of the best movies I have seen in a long time.
Absolutely amazing movie in every way!
This movie is an oscar contender for sure. Diane Lane and John Malkovich were awesome. The story is an amazing story and the movie totally did the story justice.
I really enjoyed this movie. Good acting, was a winner in my book.
It was an awesome movie. I love watching movies about horses that have done well in their lifetime, and learning about them as well. Both my son and daughter also thought it was a great movie. More movies should be made about the great race horses of all the times.
I love all movies about animals and even better when it's a true story.
Great movie, and I love animal stories
Very good movie. Disney always finds a way to bring emotion to their movies. Would recommend this movie.
Almost as good as Seabiscuit. Well paced feel good story.
A great "feel good" movie. Can't wait for the DVD.
Fantastic movie - I was on the edge of my seat during the races, even though I knew the results - that is the sign of a good movie. I also learned alot about the horse's story, as well as the owner, which I did not know.
Secretariat has you on your feet till the very end just like any great horserace! It is wonderful to see a family movie that portrays a strong woman rolemodel. Diane Lane and John Malkovich are like icetea on a hot day...definitely wanted a second glass! This movie brought me to tears more than once...happy and sad ones! It was a triple crown winner with me!
Best movie ever!
Great story, great casting, great acting and great family film.
Great movie. Be sure to watch it.
Excellent movie. Well worth watching.
