Critic Reviews of "Black Beauty (1994)"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Although already filmed three times in the sound era, Black Beauty has never been put onscreen faithfully or well, a situation partially remedied by this affecting, rather grave rendition of the children's perennial.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Directing her first feature, screenwriter Caroline Thompson adopts a level-headed tone, avoiding the twin traps of sentimentality and sermonising.New York TimesMay 21, 2003
This level of equine empathy takes getting used to, but it's worth the trouble. Ms. Thompson's film may be precious, but it's also rapturously pretty and filled with surprising passion.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It plays like a cross between New Age mysticism and anthropomorphism run amok.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Stalwart, evocative and in every respect passable ...Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Assuming a good picture is one that transcends its own material -- pulls in a variety of people with no special interest in the subject -- then "Black Beauty" is a lumbering candidate for the glue factory.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
A harrowing and Beauty-ful version of the book.Spirituality and PracticeAugust 20, 2002
A wonderful film that is true to the letter and the spirit of this classic children's story.Deseret News, Salt Lake CityJanuary 01, 2000
Four (or more) movie versions precede this latest cinematic incarnation of "Black Beauty," but none have managed to capture the spirit of the book as well.Austin ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
This Black Beauty, unlike earlier versions of the book, wisely follows Sewell's lead and concentrates instead on this generous, trusting horse and the consequences of its encounters with humanity.Entertainment WeeklyJuly 29, 1994
Thompson, also making her directorial debut, is undaunted by would-be neigh-sayers.
