Overall Good

Overall this is a safe movie. The only negatives are, in typical Hollywood fashion , the foundation is one parent (mother) died and the father was emotionally unable to care for their baby. As a result, the main character is sent to live with the grandparents. Years later, the grandfather sends the main character back to her father for the summer. It has a happy ending. One other item was the historical premise of capturing wild horses in the 1800s is illegal. It was not illegal to capture unowned/ wild horses until 1971.

2000s was the year of cartoons with slapstick, pop references and talking animals, 2010s was the year of superheroes as 2020s so far is about southern European themed, dragon and horse themed Western movies and shows. Spirit is back and this time Spirit and his friends must save his family. Some fans might not like the missing of Bryan Adams, Rain and Spirits inner voice. But you get some nice CGI animated wallpaper backgrounds. In consuerism a lot, Lots of peril and a horse face sitting a man.

Feel good movie with adventure

I was unsure about this since my 6 1/2 is sensitive. There are certain parts that make you wince (when the bad guys are trying to ‘break’ the horse and at the end when Lucky gets shoved out of the way). Lucky isn’t exactly the best role model but over the course of the movie you see her character develop into a brave human being. Overall the movie is an emotional adventure with a fun silly twist that leaves you feeling good at the end. It shows the importance of family and friends.

Movie looks good but not recommended for under 10

Story is underwhelming and typical. The main character doesn't listen to her dad. Puts herself into dangerous situations with no adults in sight. Sneaks out of the house and stays out all night while her dad worries. There was a message about treating animals with respect but that's it.
