The fundamental spectacle of the film can be found in its landscapes, color, images, and the camera's tricks. The story lacks courage, but it doesn't bore us. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

The combination of its elements touches the Australian heart, elevating the ethos of a big, wonderful land and its hard headed, big hearted people on the screen Full Review

The Man from Snowy River is worth a small "yippee!" It's a real honest-to-goodness western, the likes of which haven't been seen in these parts for a long spell. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Why not make the story more realistic, deal with the characters as people, and stop trying to get cute? Full Review

Product Description:

After his father's death, young Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson) leaves his home in the Snowy River valley to work for a wealthy landlord, who happens to be the estranged twin brother of Jim's mentor, a grizzled old prospector (both twins are played by Kirk Douglas). While fighting to earn his spurs by breaking a herd of wild horses, Jim falls in love with his employer's spunky daughter, Jessica (Sigrid Thornton). When one of the horses escapes and the blame falls on Jim, the boy must return to the Australian hills where he grew up, in order to find the horse and come back a man.
