What can I say? I LOVE THIS MOVIE! It's a 5 star for any horse lover! I think Richard Ian Cox does a fantastic job in acting for this one, and I've always loved Mickey Rooney films. If you love horses, and especially the Black Stallion, I highly suggest this film!

The synopsis for this film is accurate, while the editorial review describes the first film with the same title. This film should be called The Black Stallion II or a sequel. While it does not have the cinematographic magic of the original, it is a fine story of the bonding of a boy and his horse. The story line allows one to enjoy it as an entity unto itself. Basically, it is family fare and as with most stories involving animals there is drama. I would encourage parents to watch with their children.

Adventures of the Black Stallion
felina-san | Easton, PA United States | 02/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is not the orignal Black Stallion movie, but the series called the Adventures of the Black Stallion that aired back on the Family Channel back in the early 90's. The show was unfortunatly cancelled when the Family Channel was purchased by another TV company. It stars Mickey Rooney reprising his role from the movie and Richard Cox playing Alec Ramsay. It's 90 minutes long and in it, The Black is entered in the French race Prix de Chantilly, and Alec's friend Nicole (Marianne Filali) returns home to see her sick mother, while Alec and Henry deal with crooked gamblers and bad businessmen who try to fix the race. If you loved the Adventures of the Black Stallion, this DVD is for you!"
Not the movie

(2 out of 5 stars)

"I originally bought this DVD thinking that this was the movie starting with Alec Ramsay being saved by the Black. As I watched it I realized that it was a TV show and a poorly done one as well. The script is poorly written at best and it's almost a shame that Mickey Rooney accepted a contract. There are a total of about 4 episodes plus a bonus that seemed to be a bonus only because I couldn't determine where it fell in the timeline. Having read all of Walter Farley's books, I couldn't even tell which books the show was based off of. The Black was played by a Friesan Stallion, not even an Arabian, and was referred to as a Thoroughbred. Having been involved with horses almost all of my life, this was probably the most disturbing. The cinemetography was poor and I probably will not ever watch it again."
This Black Stallion is not the 1979 Frances Ford Coppola ver
Ronald W. Salters | Ocean Springs, MS | 03/01/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I mistakenly purchased this DVD thinking it was the 1979 version by Frances Ford Coppola. I was very disappointed in this series of shorts of The Black Stallion produced for the Family Channel. This may good for children but for someone who was looking for the mystical and beautiful film that moved me in my childhood, it was an extremely poor imitation. What really irks me is the fact that nowhere does the product information explain that it is not the film of the same name done so well in 1979. I shoulda looked closer and I will next time. Just because its name is The Black Stallion based on the book by Walter Farley, starring Mickey Rooney does not make it the classic from 1979 produced by Frances Ford Coppola."
