Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (3):

This familiar tale is far better than it might have been because of solid performances, capable direction, and lovely visuals of rural Germany, not to mention the magnificent horse. The filmmakers ask that viewers abandon any knowledge they may have about professional horseracing with its rigid rules and simply get carried away by the characters and their touching stories. It's unfortunate that the filmmakers saw the need to include swearing, including one subtitled "f--k," in a movie that otherwise would be appropriate for younger tweens. Another curious but not unsatisfactory choice is the inclusion of American songs as source music. Better than many live-action horse stories streaming and available on DVD, Rock My Heart is enjoyable and heartfelt.
