Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's nothing thrilling or new about the work here, but accomplished it is."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"An exciting and exquisitely rendered film in which the horse goes through as many adventures and perils as Indiana Jones on a good day."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Many kids will like this mustang tale."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Gorgeous and plenty exciting, but overcooked with corny narration and an endless barrage of Bryan Adams songs telling us how to feel at every moment."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"...[a] genuinely thrilling movie that's appropriate for all ages."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Spirit is smarter than your average cartoon because it doesn't try to joke around with a host of annoying talking animals."
‑ Michael Booth, Denver Post
"A welcome family film that extols noble values and offers first-class animation."
‑ Loren King, Chicago Tribune
"When the movie wants to look majestic, the colors truly emanate, but when it wants to look grim, it can look very grim and moody; I was breath taken."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"There are genuine moments of beauty in Spirit -- visually and emotionally speaking -- but ultimately they aren't worth the price of suffering through the extraneous material that too often sullies the picture."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"It dares to do things a bit differently, and it does them generally quite well."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"There's not much of a story, the whole thing's a bit superficial, and there's little to laugh at, but it's still a refreshing change from the norm."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Rather exciting, rendered in a bright sunset palette and a mixture of expressive, boldly drawn traditional animation and fluid computer-generated imagery."
‑ Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A. Weekly
"Spirit: Stallion Of the Cimmaron, which and is technically Dreamworks' first animated film since the monster CGI hit Shrek, as a hand-drawn film has quite a bit to live up to, but succeeds admirably at finding the heart that is often missing from technica"
‑ Todd Gilchrist, IGN Movies
"A welcome, entertaining, and fun ride."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, FilmStew.com
"A worthy, if dull addition to the studio's animated works."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
