More Info:
  • Michael Wilmington

    A grand ride. Sleek, beautiful and packed with emotion, not too flashy but full of heart, this is a movie worthy of its unlikely yet glorious subject: Depression-era America's best-loved racehorse and the two races that made him a legend.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A thrilling, beautifully crafted, fact-based horse story that's not merely the summer's finest movie, but may well be the one to catch come Academy Awards time.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Seabiscuit revives the sweeping pleasures of movies that address and respect the mass audience, raising the common denominator instead of pandering to it. This crowd-pleaser rouses honest and engulfing cheers.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    This is grand, inspiring entertainment of a sort that Hollywood aspires to and rarely achieves.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • William Arnold

    It's not the most viscerally exhilarating racing saga or squishy animal movie ever made, but it's a terrific period piece. It's also a well-acted, engrossing and satisfying character drama that stands out like a diamond in this summer of sequels and comic-book violence.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Yes, it's that cheesy, but it's also surprisingly appealing. After all, the horse Seabiscuit really WAS that phenomenal.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Unabashedly hokey, but would you want it any other way? In an era of cynical junk (did anyone say “Bad Boys II”?), Ross restores the good name of crowd-pleasing.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The movie's races are thrilling because they must be thrilling; there's no way for the movie to miss on those, but writer-director Gary Ross and his cinematographer, John Schwartzman, get amazingly close to the action.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Actors dominate with finely nuanced performances where every scene feels dramatically right.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Angie Errigo

    William H. Macy is a scream as the composite radio announcer whose hyperbolic racetrack reports are not only hilarious, but illustrate the impact of radio in creating a mass culture and how it was instrumental in making sporting events a nationwide obsession.

    Empire Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    It is not as exceptional a film as the reality deserves, but with a story this strong and races this expertly re-created, it squeezes out a victory by being as good a movie as it needs to be. On some days, that is enough.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Seabiscuit may be too airbrushed for its own good, but in the end nothing can stop this story from putting a lump in your throat.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Richard Schickel

    Ross is a filmmaker with a taste for inherently sentimental tales…but the discipline not to play mawkishly to our sentiments. You will be moved by Seabiscuit--but not to tears.

    Time Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    Although nowhere near the class of its equine hero, is quite a satisfying ride.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stanley Kauffmann

    Aesop endowed animals with human traits to teach us lessons. Seabiscuit almost does the reverse. By means of Ross's adroit shooting and editing, we ourselves pound bravely along the track.

    The New Republic Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    This crowd-pleaser is a genuinely inspirational film, gorgeously filmed and wonderfully acted, echoing an uplifting sentiment that bears repeating: ''You don't throw a whole life away just because it's banged up a little.''

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    This rousing story of the comeback colt comes close to a modern-day Frank Capra film without the pandering or mawkishness. Yes, it's a bit hokey, but if you fight the movie's gait you'll miss the excitement of the race.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The three (human) leads are perfection. Bridges' Howard is as breezily garrulous and glad-handing as Cooper's Smith is laconic and withdrawn. Maguire's Pollard has haunted eyes and orangey hair that makes him look like a human jack-o'-lantern, and establishes his own unique rhythm and less-is-more style.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Ross surrendered himself to the tale, lavishing time on the characters, getting the period details right and making the races look authentic. The result is a faithful, loving piece of work, and the love shows.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    Fortunately, a movie that needs some levity gets a comic boost from William H. Macy as a fictional racing handicapper from the golden days of radio. As if training a horse, Macy cues us to laugh every time he's on screen.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    In the end, Seabiscuit gets right the things that matter.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Eventually, Seabiscuit settles into a nice rhythm, and, as it enters the stretch run, it exhibits all the necessary elements of a good sports movie. Like the horse it's named after, Seabiscuit has a lot of heart, and, in the end, that's what won me over.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Seabiscuit is a good enough movie, in the sense that it's a well-crafted assemblage of pathos and rousing moments, solidly acted and handsomely shot -- but it's far from champion material.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    On first acquaintance, Seabiscuit seems to be about anything but horse racing: the disappearance of the American frontier after 1910, our love affair with automotive speed, the passing of a rural way of life, homelessness during the Depression.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    Sublimely directed, scored, shot and performed, the picture misses greatness by a nose as a result of shortcomings in its script.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Don R. Lewis

    More than "Rocky" on a horse track. It's a moving story about people and how their lives intersect at just the right time. It's also a simple story about second chances.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Watching this movie, you get the feeling that the Depression existed so that Seabiscuit could be memorialized.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Though the results are a matter of record, the uplift is nevertheless intoxicating, even enough to compensate for a film that routinely substitutes corny iconography for real imagination and vision.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    More mystical than mysterious, Seabiscuit is a proudly cornball sentimental epic -- a reverential paean to a vanished America that's steeped in inspirational uplift and played for world-historical pathos.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jean Oppenheimer

    That the film is good rather than great proves a disappointment, but just finding a good film these days is rare, especially a big studio picture.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Somehow we are never quite swept into the boisterous, democratic world of which Seabiscuit, in Ms. Hillenbrand's account, was the plucky, galloping embodiment.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The best thing about Seabiscuit is that it will make a lot of people hungry to read the book. They've seen the pretty pictures; now they'll want to enter the world.

    Slate Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Respectable when it should be thrilling, honorable when it should be rough and ready.

    Variety Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Taking a cue from the horse in question, Ross’ film takes its time getting into the race, but once it gets going, the going gets good.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Trembles with respect for Hillenbrand's book. It's hobbled by good intentions, grand plans for telling many stories at once, and a fear of the very audience whose intelligence and sophistication it claims to court.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    For such a pedestrian exercise in Spielbergian sentiment, the somewhat stale Seabiscuit dunks into some gravy moments; the always dependable William H. Macy is three honks and six rattles of comic relief as the sound effects–happy, kooky radio reporter Tick Tock McGlaughlin, and the racing scenes themselves are spectacular.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    The movie's secret weapons are its stellar cast, whose performances go a long way to ameliorating Ross's ham-fisted use of foreshadowing and symbols, and its brilliantly shot racing sequences -- they're heart-stoppingly suspenseful even when the outcome is a matter of record.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Two-thirds of the way through, Seabiscuit awakes to its duties as a perfectly presentable race movie, rising to a crescendo of satisfying --- if somewhat gaga -- inspiration.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Charles Taylor

    It's deluxe and handsome and has no soul. Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Maybe the magic will work for those who loved the book, but I found this film stultifyingly self-important and, despite the regularity with which it cuts to the chase, weirdly static.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    I found much of it as emotionally rigged as a crooked horse race.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • David Denby

    If Ross had merely told his story and re-created the media folk culture of the thirties, the movie might have been a classic. [4 August 2003, p. 84]
