I remember seeing the movie Phar Lap in a theatre when I was 16... The movie was beyond amazing... I don't think there was one dry eye (guys too) at the end of the movie. I've seen tons of horse movies, and I've never experienced so many emotions in any movie than this one. It's funny, sad, happy, invigorating and maddening all in one movie. Even if you're not a big fan of horses, this movie is full of action and describes an amazing story of an AMAZING PHAR LAP! I'd like to thank the guy who wrote the long review on how PHAR LAP actually died, because until then, I too thought the Americans killed Phar Lap because of greed and jealousy... Till this day the thought of it sickened me. I guess when something tragic like this happens, people want someone to take responsibility for the tragedy now... Unfortunately in some cases the wrong person/s are accused... That is until the actual facts are know. Anyway... If you get a chance to view this movie, you will NOT be dissapointed!!!
