Received in great condition-

I received the dvd in a good amount of time and there was absolutely no issues with the quality of dvd received from the seller.
The dvd story itself was very disappointing. In my opinion it was just a poor horse racing movie. Any kind of story was lost by the flicking back and forth in the storylines. In the attempt to make this film stand out, the producers added so much swearing, using God's name in vain, inappropriate brothel scene, kicking a goat...etc Seriously unhappy as I tried to watch this movie with the family and some of which were young. If your looking for a good family horse movie try Secretariat instead with fantastic.

a true, uplifting and inspiring film

This is a wonderful film, based on the true story of the race horse Seabiscuit. I am not ashamed to say that I have watched this film at least 3 times and every time it has brought tears to my eyes - tears of joy for the determination of people, and horses, to overcome adversity and to recover from terrible sedbacks, and to go on to achieve the remarkable.

Set around the period of the depression in the 1920's the movie relates the story of how 3 people- Seabiscuit's owner, trainer and jockey, overcame their personal losses and tragedies in pursuit of their dreams.

Superbly recreated scenes which almost exactly match the original newsreel footage, and totally convincing acting from all the main players make this an entirely convincing and satisfying movie - one of my favourite films ever. You don't need to know anything much about horse racing to enjoy this film - try it - you'll love it!

Wonderful Story

A brilliant movie about a homeless boy, millionaire and a cowboy brought together by a horse that became famous, very moving and great to watch with their combination they succeed in the race circuit. The actors are fabulous so I rated this an A grade plus for the full on entertainment that goes with the story, the problems of training and the up and downs in their journey to glory. Highly recommended as this is a great movie and worth having and watching. Now time to relax with feet up and munchies by your side. Enjoy!

dts 5.1 is great,the encode needs no enhancing..just play it through your home theatre kit on 'standard' to benefit from it.,just wonderful.Is over 2 hours,,not that it drags a bit,because it doesn't,but make sure you have a butty with you coz the movies sentiment will be too exhausting otherwise.Pause if the kettle beckons because this too will be a requirement-very exhausting,,BUT it is worth it.The transfer is remarkable on this '03 release-was on mine anyway.,looked & sounded like a bluray.(modern equipment is great)Strongly recommend watching through a 5.1 home theatre kit,dvd's are fantastic-and I think people forget that with the onset of high def.
I recommend this dvd,the quality of the audio and video transfers are so that its not worth the extra for the bluray...unless you HAVE to own it.

Extremely entertaining docudrama. Some deviation from true fact regarding a famous racehorse but that's not uncommon in film making. Excellent cast and acting. Highly recommended, especially for horse racing fans.

This is the most well told and fascinating film in my 1000 film collection. It is the classic story about the unlikely hero and a piece of american history.

Gary Roos is a moviemaking god. Too bad that he does not do this very often, (witch led my to see all his movies), but I guess when you do them this well, it takes a huge effort.

People outside the US - SEE THIS FILM! There have not been much distribution/marketing outside USA, and that is really a pity, because this movie is among the absolute best I have seen, and the style of storytelling is simply through the roof.

Thumps up to Gary Roos and the fantastic actors that took this movie though the roof. Thank you.

Lovely film great for family viewing

I loved this film. Its full of warmth and tells a story of achievement and success against all the odds. Like any good film it has its tragedy and tensions but overall its a real feel good film. it moves at a reasonable pace and is about a race horse that comes from nowhere and does better than expected. Also the relationship with the jockely and the horse. I am not a 'horsey' person but still loved the film, the kids and my mum did too. Great family viewing
