Hidalgo

Print the legend.

This is a throwback to the old days of moviemaking, with spectacle prized above a slavish devotion to the facts, especially when those facts are long disputed.

Following long-distance rider Frank Hopkins and his exploits around the world, it gives Viggo Mortensen a chance to emerge from the slog of the Lord of the Rings films, and have some fun again.

The centerpiece of the movie is a race between Hopkins, astride a mustang, facing off with Bedouins on pure-blood Arabian horses.

Don’t know who’s going to win? Man, you must be new around these here parts.
