To those whose bedroom walls were never adorned with photographs of wild, galloping herds, Black Beauty reads as pretty, but emotionally vacant.

December 4, 2020 | Rating: 2/5

If you can edge thoughts of sacrilege from your head, this Black Beauty works well enough as a bank holiday entertainment in the style of mid-20th century Disney television.

It's ultimately too inert, even with the changes, to make this familiar story leap off the page. Black Beauty isn't bad, exactly, but rather the kind of flavorless fare that underscores how hard really good family viewing is to corral.

Anna Sewell's children's classic is given a radical Disney overhaul with mostly pleasing results.

This might just be the wish of a former horse rider, but I'd much rather spend more time with Black Beauty than with Jo or any of the other human characters in her path.

November 27, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A sonorously well-meaning film that bathes everything in the bland, buttery sunlight that Disney always produces and in which the human performances are as opaque as the ones given by the horses.
