Disney was nice enough to supply me with a copy of this movie to review a few days ago. I missed watching it in the theaters and after seeing it at home I regret not going. It has been a long wait for it to make it’s wait to Bluray/DVD.
The Story of Big Red or the Secretariat is a very encouraging, and uplifting movie. Like most of my movie reviews I don’t like to give to much of the story away.Even though it is based on a true story your going to have to watch it to get full plot details.
The star of the movie hands down is The Secretariat or Big Red as many call him. Diane Lane and John Malkovich do a great job in their roles as well but it is clear who the star of the movie is.
Many people compared this movie to Blind Side and I can see why. It is a very heartfelt and touching story about overcoming adversity and doing the impossible.
This is a great family movie but little ones will probably get bored easily. I highly recommend this movie if you looking for a pick me up or a relaxing drama. The picture quality is fabulous and if you have surround sound it feels like your there racing with Big Red.
Disney did a great job remaking this true story and I am glad that is in my Disney Movie Collection.
This movie comes out on Jan 25th on Disney Bluray/DVD Combo.
