mediocre but still fun

A good movie, but definitely not what the original Black Stallion was.The whole thing falls just a little flat, but it's not bad, just mediocre. The only real point of concern in the movie is the violence (there are innumerable gunfights throughout the whole thing), but there is no blood shown whatsoever. There are some parts which could be scary for younger children (several kidnappings, nighttime scenes with "bad guys" prowling around Alec's yard up to no good, and of course the ever-present gunfights.) And Alec is definitely not the greatest role model, as he stows away on a plane headed overseas, disregarding his mother's concern for him and placing his horse over his family. Other than that, this is a very clean family movie and pretty fun at that.
