The Black Stallion Returns is not a magic monument - it's only a terrific film for kids. [26 Mar 1983] Read full review
It is funny, unpretentious and fast-paced. It has a kind of comicbook appreciation for direct action and no time whatsoever for mysticism or for scenery for its own sake, though most of it was shot in Morocco and is fun to look at. Read full review
