  • An adventure that never met a cliche it couldn't saddle, mount and ride for a butt-numbing two hours and sixteen minutes. show more

  • 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.

  • Hidalgo is the first Middle East western. show more
