A delightful story about good & evil and love triumphant. Yes, it's far-fetched, but so what? Clearly "A Winter's Tale" demonstrates the overcoming power of true love. Colin Farrell is excellent as is Russell Crowe. Go and be delighted...

Not a home run, but a good matinee for a cold day. The same story could have been told without some of the overt fantasy. It lost some realism which would have added a hint of mystery. But worth seeing and well acted.

Winter's Tale is a delightfully magical fantasy that you can easily get lost in for 2 hours. A story of love and good vs. evil. An age old theme with some unexpected twists. There are inconsistencies, but if you go without expections and watch it with an uncritical eye it's enjoyable. It did what I want a movie to do, it entertained me.

My Wife & I enjoyed this romantic drama on Valentine's Day,.she maybe more than I. The acting was impressive & award winning. The cinematography took you into the film like another character. Scenes of the snow & ice glistened, at times making you feel cold & warm at different times as to the difference in the scenes. The director did a great job with the cast of Winter's Tale. The only thing we thought that would have made the movie better was if the First part (older scenes) had come together with the second part(present day ) with more of a flow. The white horse was beautiful, even more so in flight. Several times was said of a dog or horse, but in the movie we only saw the horse. Hats off to the horse's trainer & animators or computer generators that made him fly. This film is for adults only. We don't usually pay much attention to the movie critics we like to make up our own minds if its a movie we want to see.

Terrible, and I'm easy on movies. The only thing good about this movie was I was surprised to see Will Smith. It's always good to see him, even in a bad movie. Everything was so under-developed. I didn't care that Beverly was going to die, didn't care about Collin's character at all. Didn't explain the horse well enough. Was expecting a love story and it "could" have been so good. There was so much they could have done with this movie, but didn't. The people in it were star quality, but not the movie. I felt nothing!! It was too quiet, too unfeeling, too boring, just didn't connect at all. Sorry, I was so looking forward to seeing this. I have never in my life paid $11.00 for a movie ticket and won't make that mistake again, because of this movie!
