I found this movie to be quite slow. I managed to watch all of it but I had a hard time keeping my attention on it

I really enjoyed this movie. No fancy CGI or pumped up special effects. Bruce Dern for his age was pretty good in it too. Nice to know the American Mustang has not been forgotten and that people incarcerated are helping them in their training. It's a win, win situation for both involved.

When I was young I trained horses and the techniques they used were not typical of real horse training. One summer when I was 19 I drove down to Madras Oregon and bought two wild horses off the indian reservation. They had not been handled by anyone yet and I kept them in a stall and worked them in a small corral. Took only 6 weeks to have them ready to sell as nice gentle horses. Took lots of contact with them but they came around fairly easy. Most movies I see that have anything to do with wild mustangs show them to be be a lot nicer looking than they really are. This movie displayed behavior not displayed by horses nor were a lot of the sound effects realistic. I felt like the Doctor who was watching a medical show on television and saying to my self that behavior does not go on at any hospital I have been in. However the central theme that men working with horses can change their behavior is a good one and very possible. Horses are a nice animal to be around and most people who work with them are good people.

Matthias Schoenaerts is so good in this. Please seek this out if you haven’t seen it. Such a great character study.

Not an action film but nicely done... Relationship Between him, horse and world slowly grew. Simple but elegant film.

A pretty slow movie, to be honest. The information about people, the dialogue was just too sparse. This felt like a half done movie to me.

I had high hopes for this movie, sadly these were soon shattered. The movie lacked any passion and emotion, was super slow and almost unrealistic. I will be in your face when saying I am against incarcerated people with no experience in horse training taking care, taming and training wild horses. This should not be done. Many incarcerated people have mental issues, anger management issue and are not fit to be around such graceful animals, who were robbed of their freedom without committing any crime. Then you can see some incarcerated men physically hurting horses. Horses should be tamed by experienced trainers not by unstable people.
The main character was lacking any depth, his negative energy, constantly filled with anger transferred on his horse (no way to calm a horse down if your mind is not stable) and spreading thru the movie, it just did not feel "right". Could not be sympathetic with the main character.
Was hoping for some powerful and meaningful drama loosely based on reality, yet found a very slow, uninteresting movie and could not wait to finish it (was watching it with somebody else). You will not miss anything if not watching this one.
Please do yourself a favor: watch an emotional and powerful movie based on real events with real-life characters (not even actors) called The Rider (2017) instead. That was an outstanding masterpiece!!

A mellow watching type of show but it did have a decent story. To me it was entertaining to watch. I would not watch it again as it is not really a movie you re-watch.

I loved that this is based on real life events and in the end left me rooting for both horse and convict. Applauding his decision whole heartedly!!!
