Product description

Product Description

A sandstorm of epic proportions. A swarm of locusts so massive it obliterates the relentless sun. Deadly traps that defy imagination. These are just a few of the astonishing obstacles Frank T. Hopkins, the greatest long-distance racer ever, faces in the rousing action-adventure HIDALGO. Based on a true story and starring Viggo Mortensen (THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy), Hopkins (Mortensen) and his mustang Hidalgo enter the ultimate extreme sport of its time -- the Ocean Of Fire. Underdogs challenging the finest Arabian horses and riders, they must not only survive the grueling race across 3,000 miles of the Arabian Desert's punishing terrain, but they must thwart the evil plots of competitors who vow victory at all costs! A great story of personal triumph, amazing special effects, and memorable characters make HIDALGO one of the most thrilling adventures ever.

Si le réalisateur américain Joe Johnston est un habitué du spectacle à gros déploiement (il a, entre autres, réalisé Le parc Jurassique 3 et Jumanji), c’est avec Hidalgo qu’il renoue avec une certaine idée du divertissement hollywoodien à l’ancienne.

En 1890, Frank T. Hopkins, d’origine indienne, est considéré comme un des meilleurs cavaliers de l’Ouest américain. Son mustang Hidalgo y est pour beaucoup. Invité par le cheikh des cheikh à participer à l’Océan de Feu, une course de près de 5000 km dans le désert arabe, il devra affronter bien plus que les tempêtes de sable ou les nuages de sauterelles.

Inspiré par des événements réels, Hidalgo mêle habilement film d’aventures et western dans une production souvent spectaculaire et efficace, malgré la présence de quelques effets spéciaux peu convaincants. Bien que les questions morales (la loyauté, la pureté, le courage) qui y soient posées ne relèvent pas de la plus grande originalité, que les clichés narratifs, (comme les caractérisations des peuples arabes et américains) y soient légion, le film tout de même assez palpitant peut compter sur les interprétations des charismatiques Omar Sharif (Laurence d’Arabie) et de Viggo Mortensen (Le Seigneur des anneaux) ainsi que sur la présence d’un cheval particulièrement expressif et charmant. Un making-of et un court-métrage sur l’histoire des mustangs complètent la présentation sur DVD. – Helen Faradji --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.
