Pleasant movie but not for young children who'd get bored and also a tad too simplistic for adults. I would have liked a lot more actual horse racing, and the ones that are included could have been better done. It brought up subplots about the female owner's struggles against sexism in the industry and issues about her leaving her family behind for months at a time but then didn't resolve them in a meaningful way. Basically a cookie-cutter, candy-coated movie that is a little too long.

Diane Lane gets her strong indepedent woman on in this great 'based on a true story' flick. Even though it's supposed to be about the horse, it's more about Penny Chenery Tweedy (Lane) and her determination to save her father's farm and business reputation. John Malkovich is always fabulous and surprisingly as the movie progresses his Lucien Laurin (trainer extraordinaire) just gets better and better. Make sure you take a few minutes to watch the 'Special Features' on the disc and the story about the real life Secretariat. What a phenomenal animal!

If you think you've seen enough thoroughbred horse racing movies before (eg, Seabiscuit) and don't need to see another, think again. This is an incredible and in the end, absolutely unbelievable, true story that will leave you thrilled. Seabiscuit et al are about 30 lengths behind this movie. A must see for the whole family.

Enjoyed it but it's hardly original. Still, a pleasant enough way to spend some time.

The movie was a bid slow and some of the acting sub-standard. The cinematography was a bit disappointing. Apart from that, not a terribly bad film.

this movie provided some very good entertainment for all members of my family from grandchildren to adults, it had everything drama tears and comedy. diane lane as always delieved a very convincing portrail of her character along with john malkovich this combination was a winner. triumph of the heart and soul, a good lesson about going with what you feel is fate sometimes needs a lot of courage.

This is a very uplifting movie. As all the other reviewers have said: No horses died as part of the story line. :)) The epilogue referring it as the greatest horse to ever live might be strongly challenged by Phar Lap supporters, or the more fans experiencing Black Cavier fever.

Lovely story. Heartwarming tale of the great Secretariat. Rachael Mc Adams does herself well as the wife who inherits the horse stud farm, and is there for the birth of this wonderhorse. Recommend it to any person, horeslover or not.

A feel good movie for the whole family and definately worth watching. Based on a true story about the great American racehorse, Secretariat, the storyline is predictable but engrossing.

My wife loves horses and horse movies, I hate horses and horse movies, however we both loved this film. This film is far more than just a horse film, it is about having a go and running your race. A MUST SEE.

If you liked Sea Biscuit, you'll like this. I'm not big into movies like these much myself, but Disney has a beautiful way of making a good wholesome way to waste 90 minutes. Worth a look

A wonderfully heart-warming and thrilling story. The Secretariat is truly inspirational and just proves how persistence, dedication and being totally passionate about what one believes in, wins in the end.

Absolutely loved this movie. The horse racing scenes were thrilling and the horse is gorgous. Lovely scenery, good acting and a movie that the whole family will enjoy. I went straight out and bought myself a copy so I can watch it again and again at home. If you loved the movie "Seabiscuit", it's as good if not better.!.

A horse that loved to race. A very nice movie set in the early 1970s where a housewife inherits a racefarm and a chance to truly believe in herself again. The story flows nicely, John Malkovich's role is brilliant and quirky, adds some humour. An amazing story well told.
