What the fuck was I thinking? A cheesy Spielberg film, about a horse that goes to war? Why did I even bother? Oh yeah… Benedict Cumberbatch. After watching two seasons (aka six episodes) of the BBC’s Sherlock, how could I resist a film starring the wonderful and sarcastic and funny Sherlock Holmes… er, Benedict Cumberbatch.
This film goes to prove that no matter how good your actors are, you need a good script, and the script for War Horse is fucking terrible. I can’t remember the last time I disliked a film so much that I had to turn it off. War Horse, you won that prize.
