In the 1890's Frank T. Hopkins, a former U.S. Cavalry dispatch rider who is haunted by memories of what he saw at the battle of Wounded Knee, and his mustang Hidalgo, are performing in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, billed as the greatest horse and rider the West has ever known. This leads them to be invited to run in the 3,000 mile endurance race across the Middle Eastern desert, the Ocean of Fire, by one of the leading Arabian Sheiks. The race soon becomes not only a matter of pride and honor for Frank, but a race for his very survival as he and his horse attempt the impossible.

Viggo Mortensen totally nailed this role. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time, laughing and hardly breathing. I expect to rewatch it several times in the future!

Didn't realize this was a Disney production. Very American and predictable, but not bad.

This is one of the best movies that most people have never seen. I have watched it dozens of times and enjoy it everytime. Well written and constructed, the plot takes a new turn just when you think things are going to slow down. It gets off to a bit of a slow start, but stay with it; it's well worth it.

Very lovable story! I enjoyed this movie very much. One of the few non cheesy, horribly made horse movies out there. Would definitely watch it again somtime.

I hadn't watched this for many years. I thoroughly enjoyed this re-watch. Not a great reflective movie but definitely a lovely few hours of entertainment.

Excellent movie and acting. Inspiration to save the wild horses and burros of the south west from being shipped to Canada and Mexico for slaughter.

Violence: Hidalgo contains wild west violence, involving guns, spears, and swords. Not gory or disgusting though
