The great thing about war movies is they are centred around epic battles or personal heroes. War Horse is recognized across the globe as an amazing story about a boy and his horse. At almost two and half hours long this film drags across what seems to be every battle of the Great War, which can wear down your interest in the actual story. Most people would be surprised with all the stars in minor roles, as so many people try to be a part of one of the greatest stories about personal sacrifice as the world tears itself apart.
