A very cool movie....well written....good acting and VERY well directed! Every movie has a little \"Hollywood\" spice thrown in to make it interesting....this one is spiced just right for my taste.

The much too long, primitively plotted family action adventure Hidalgo, directed by Joe Johnston, has a handful of well-handled sequences but, given the young audience the film is intended for, the picture may be like having to finish an entire pot of broccoli to get a couple of jelly beans for dessert.

There is some lovely cinematography by Shelly Johnson in the classic David Lean style and plenty of excitement. Taken just for that, Hidalgo delivers. Full Review

If it weren't for Sharif's extraordinary presence, there wouldn't be a cherishable moment in the movie. Full Review

A family film (albeit a mediocre one). Full Review

Wall Street Journal
This movie needs a star performance at its center, and the director, Joe Johnston, doesn't seem to know it. His closeups dote on Mr. Mortensen's striking face, and on the actor's interesting inwardness, but he doesn't ask for, or find, the sort of zest that could turn laconic into romantic. Full Review
