Flicka 2 - DVD Review & Giveaway


Movie Synopsis:

The wild mustangs of Wyoming return when Flicka 2 makes its exclusive premiere on DVD and DVD Combo Pack May 4th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The uplifting film, directed by Michael Damian (Moondance Alexander), a continuation of the popular 2006 Flicka that starred Tim McGraw, features Patrick Warburton (“Family Guy,” “Seinfeld”), newcomer Tammin Sursok (“The Young And The Restless”) and country legend Clint Black in a thrilling story of the special bond between one girl and the mustang no one could tame. Carrie (Sursok) is a big-city teenager whose life is turned upside down when she moves to a horse ranch in Wyoming to live with her father (Warburton). But everything changes when Carrie meets Flicka, a wild, jet-black mustang who’s just as free-spirited and strong-willed as Carrie. The two form a special bond and Carrie opens her heart to her father and a handsome, local boy, but when a jealous rival puts Flicka’s life in jeopardy, Carrie must do whatever it takes to save her best friend.


My Review:
I like animals okay, but I don't usually seek out movies that have animals as a main character. Even though Flicka 2 centered around a horse, there was a storyline that focused on relationships and friendships between people. Tension, heroism, determination, and young love take part in a movie that has you feeling like you've watched something worthwhile.

I felt real emotions throughout this movie and it was appropriate for the whole family to watch. My oldest son and youngest girl have watched it a few times now because they like it so well. I don't recall seeing the first movie, Flicka, but I did not feel lost or get the vibe that I needed to watch the first one to get the gist of this one. It is the second of the Flicka movies, and although this one stands alone, I'd like to see the first one just because I got a good impression with Flicka 2.

Win It!
Two people will win Flicka 2 on DVD.

I've really been wanting to see this so I'd love to win it for my family and I! Flick1 is one of my favorite movies, so I'm very excited! However, my brother did watch it and sad the first one is much better - but that could just be him, he's picky!

I'm having a hard time deciding whether my 9-year-old niece or 5-year-old nephew would like this movie more. My niece is taking riding lessons right now, and my nephew just flat-out loves horses. ...I guess I'll decide if I win? (I hope this counts...I really can't decide!)

Thank you for the giveaway. :-)
