The Derby Stallion Reviews:

I am usually tolerant of horse movies. I don't expect the actors to be the greatest riders or horse handlers. I expect mistakes to be made and things to be wrong. I test to sit back and just play the story. This is what I expected to do recently when I picked up a fresh horse film named The Derby Stallion. Well it was simply awful. The lead should not ride at all. I feel they should have found an actor with riding skills. Even worse was when they switched to the legs of a dark bay horse jumping when the lead horse was a bright chestnut. They could have taken the time to do the research and search the right people.Overall I was not impressed with the method this film was shot and place together. Some of the close-ups seemed too close and out of focus and now made me dizzy. I feel a lot more should have been done to create this film better starting with an actor who had true life horse experience.


I will start by telling that the only reason I watched this film is because I like Zac Efron and was curious to see his another work. Considering the movie hasn't received much attention outside of the Zac Efron fanbase, I had my reservations about how the movie might turn out. Unfortunately, I wasn't mistaken.'The Derby Stallion' has a very straightforward, some might even tell cliché, storyline: a man befriends an older-mentor archytype (think an old, black Yoda) and needs to learn how to ride steeplechase in order to compete vs his rival and victory the large derby at the climax of the film.The movie begins out with 15 year old Patrick in conflict with his dad who wants him to become a star baseball player. Instead, Patrick spends his time hanging out with the local city drunk, Bill Cobbs' Houston Jones, who regales him with tales of being a steeple chase rider. Naturally his parents disaprove of their friendship but this changes when Patrick takes an interest in riding and wants to compete in the large derby. Everything is going nice until Houston passes away and Patrick, consumed by grief and lacking in confidence, decides to quit riding. At the last minute, he changes his mind and everything is set right. The movie ends with a shot of Patrick leaving his trophy at Houston's grave, his family at his side.The movie is typically corny, rife with a very predictable story and the usual conflicts/resolutions that one might search in most family films. However, the ending of the movie is so hasty and anti-climactic that I couldn't but support feel like it was done in a very half-assed way. Also, as many others have pointed out, the fact that the Patrick hero becomes so skilled in such a short period of time defies logic and the so-called 'relationship' between horse and jockey is seems shaky at best.The one bright spot is Bill Cobbs who does a fairly decent job portraying the relationship of Houston's 'Yoda' to Patrick's 'Luke' (yes, there's even a line in the movie that is essentially paraphrases "Do, or do not. There is no try."). Another than that the movie is forgettable. I'm sure there will be enough interest generated by Zac Efron's celebrity to receive the movie seen, but any serious rider, as others have previously posted, will search the premise and execution weak.Edited for typo.


I really enjoyed this film. The acting was nice and Zac Efron did some really great work.I was drawn to this movie because I ride horses and like racing. I didn't know much about Steeplechase before this movie. It is cool...looks cute difficult and a tiny risky but fun. I also enjoyed Houston Jones hero and his relationship with Zac's character, "Patrick". It reminded me of my relationship with my granddad.The parents were nice too, and the woman that plays Jill, is hot! My mother liked the movie too, and told she would suggest it to her mates to purchase for their children because its a family film that she enjoyed watching with me. There are some surprises in it that I won't say you. Randy's hero is a nice terrible guy. I think you will like it as much as I did!
