Black Beauty (2015/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: C Sound: B- Extras: C Film: C

A young girl after rescuing an abused horse takes care him to the countryside on her grandfather's farm. There as she begins to heal Beauty's body and mind, hoping to rebuild and regain his trust and love in humans. A girl who love animals more than people meets the horse of her dreams and begs for a chance to save Black Beauty instead of being put down. On her grandfather's farm she begins rehabilitating Beauty and even enter him in a horse contest, but on the way will she learn to make friend and meet a boy as well?

Daniel Zirilli's Black Beauty (2015) is far reach compared to the original Black Beauty feature films people still talk about. It was more about a girl and her love of horses than the wild spirit of an untamed station. Black Beauty is about the respect for nature and helping horse become free and in turn the horse loves and respects the ones who help them. Luke Perry and Bruce Davidson are the lead human stars.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is softer than it should be but the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is decent. Extras includes behind the scenes and interviews on the Making of Black Beauty.
