Matt Damon seems terribly miscast in this movie. It moves from plot point to plot point without letting any of the scenes breathe. Crucial bits from the book like the aunt's motivation to protect her daughter are missing and the sheer brutality of the prison are downplayed in this adaptation. Really beautiful scenery and decent direction though.

I have watched worse movies than this but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone at all. It's a western for people who love drama but the drama itself is a bore. Matt Damon is his usual self but no one else really shows up. Not that it matters because no two pairing of characters have any chemistry anyway.

All the Pretty Horses shows the ups and downs of one man's life and how he deals with the situations as they come. In true western fashion, there a good guys and bad guys. The honesty of each man shows which alignment he drifts towards and each man has some of the other side inside him. The relationship between Damon's character and Henry Thomas' character is strong and their acting is just as strong. Lucas Black does a fine job in this movie (because he accent doesn't get in the way).

Some parts I really liked, other parts not so much. One of those film where I expected something completely different and the surprise of something else just didn't do it for me this time... *Okay

A disappointing adaption of a great book. It loses the book's essence, an essential part of "All the Pretty Horses."

I think this is a fantastic example of a film completely neutered by studio intervention. It's a good thing McCarthy's story is as brilliant as it is, because even through the wonky cinematography, editing, and pacing, it still shines through.

Frustrating film starts off well, but squanders its many great, powerful moments (and wonderful wide-screen cinematography) on a narrative that fires off in all directions, and can't decide if it is a drama, romance, thriller, prison-movie, Butch Cassidy clone etc. Presumenably this narrative worked better on McCarthy's page, but the film still has something going for it; Thomas and Black are both excellent, and Damon is extraordinary.

Miramax fucked this movie up by trying to turn it into Titanic. There's a great movie buried somewhere in here but you have to squint to see it through the translucent coating of forced formula and choppy editing.

Surprisingly tedious drama that launched my personal Penelope Cruz hate parade (ended with Volver). Weird little bits of potential shine through here and there, but I found myself wishing I could watch "Horses Are Pretty" by IFC's 6-year-old "Christie" instead.

I am a big fan of the book but this movie seemed poorly paced, sloppily edited, and incomplete. I've heard that the studio forced Thorton to edit it down to its current state, so it might be that the real version of the film, the version that does the book justice, is out there somewhere. Penelope Cruz is, as usual, a black hole in an otherwise nicely cast movie.

Good ending. Marriage to a woman made impossible by an oathe.

The whole thing seemed sort of paint by numbers, illustrating all of the descriptions from the book, but carrying none of the subtext or depth. Not a bad movie, but a lot of high expectations based on the source material.

This is okay. The sharp moral character & characters are pretty interesting, the sweeping vistas are stunning yet the loose construction does little to propel the story. The romance is fair, i suppose it's really Matt's not really breathing any life into his character that makes it seem flat. An art western.
