The Reviews for The Dark Horse (2014) 1080p


Gripping, brilliant..engagingReviewed byzusueVote: 10/10

This is one of the best movies I have seen EVER. I know the area it was set in, so I was immediately in the zone...the acting is superb and the characters well written and well represented. The story takes you along on the journey and there were times when I was watching through my hands, anxious that things would not go well. The movie has stayed with me, popping into my mind and I have been transported back over and over...It is a rare thing for a movie to live on outside the 90-120 minutes spent inside the theatre..but this movie had such a profound impact. Full credit to the cast and crew for a compelling drama. This is a movie that is destined to become a classic. An amazing amazing story. Thanks !

A troubling realityReviewed byimadatabankVote: 10/10

I'm not certain that this movie will have international appeal simply because it's setting is in New Zealand.

That, on the face of it, shouldn't make any difference you may think, but the imagery, language, and social discord is so localised that I fear that it's message will not ring bells for viewers who can't identify with the players in the drama.

Don't get me wrong. I have every confidence that societies across the world experience the same issues - youth without aspirations fall into the clutches of the gangs because they provide substance in the void.

If, somehow, you do get a chance to see this movie, then grab that opportunity with both hands because something like this does not come along very often, and when it does, we frequently forgo the chance to wallow in the spectacle.

A stunning, beautiful triumph of New Zealand filmReviewed byLindsay ThompsonVote: 9/10

I had the chance to see this film on the opening night of the 2014 New Zealand International Film Festival. The advance reviews from critics had been so unanimously high that I went in with pretty strong expectations, which can easily backfire when a film is unable to live up to the hype. I really thought that might be the case with this.

But, literally, from the first frame of this incredible film (which silenced everyone around me, it's such a stunning opening shot), I forgot all of that, and became completely utterly wonderfully immersed in the story and performances and everything that unraveled before my eyes over the next two hours.

The way that this film deals with chess, Maori mythology, mental illness, gangs, kids... and weaves them all together, is just so compelling. The way that it moves from tragedy to comedy, without it ever feeling forced... the performances from people that apparently have never acted before in their lives... It's really hard to believe and so impressive.

The reaction around me was also hard to believe. Throughout the film, people all over the theatre (myself included) were literally laughing, crying, applauding, gasping, cheering, weeping... And then at the end after the ENTIRE credits had rolled without anyone moving, there was a standing ovation from the ENTIRE audience - almost 2,500 people! Incredible. I haven't been part of something quite like that before.

The emotion of this film is so powerful, the craft on display is so strong, the directing, writing, acting, music, cinematography. Just sublime. I really was floored.

The person I attended with told me after wards they thought this could be the greatest NZ film they've ever seen. I recently heard the National Radio Review say a similar thing when they were reviewing it.

I would have to agree.

Simply stunning.
