Absolutely fantastic movie. If you like war movies you are sure to love this one! This is a 2011 film directed by the man himself Steven Spielberg. For those of you who do not know who Speilberg is, he is the director of ET: The Extraterrestrial, Jaws and Jurassic Park. This was an outstanding movie. Tom Hiddleston who plays Loki in Marvel’s The Avengers and Thor is also in this for a brief time along side with Benedict Cumberbatch who is Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
War Horse is a film featuring the very beginning right as World War 1 is starting. Albie (Jeremy Irving) is a farm boy from Devon, England who’s alcoholic father purchases a wild horse at auction who’s later named Joey. Albie forms an unbreakable bond with His horse up until Joey was taken to join the war. However, Albie will stop at nothing until he finds his horse.
This movie really surprised me. I really love how they show Joey’s story and what it’s like for a horse during a war. It was impressive seeing how many people came to care for Joey and how many owners he had throughout the movie. War is a magical and terrifying thing. It tears people apart but also brings them back together.
I am a fan of war movies such as, Fury, Dunkirk, The Darkest Hour and 1917. If you love movies like that or similar then this is an absolute film you should see! I would give this a 9/10. A must see! very impressive!
