DVD/Blu-ray Release: War Horse

April 3, 2012

Today, Walt Disney Home Entertainment is releasing legendary director Steven Spielberg’s War Horse on DVD & Blu-ray, courtesy of DreamWorks Pictures.  Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, the WWI film is worth seeing for the impressive production design and a few touching scenes on the battlefield.  We reviewed the film when it opened in theatres this past Christmas, our overall consensus was:

“Steven Spielberg’s World War I saga War Horse is a film that older kids and adults can enjoy, as it generally overcomes the overlong 146-minute running time and thin character development with beautiful cinematography and several touching scenes involving the title animal.  *** (Out of 4)”

The Blu-ray includes extensive featurettes on the journey the story took before coming to the screen, a look at the production and cinematography, and another from the point of view of an extra on the set.

War Horse is 146 minutes and rated PG.
