I'd give it about a "3" on a scale from 0 to 5, it had a Disney movie feel to it. There was a scene where the horse gets caught up in barbed wire, hard to take and I had to hide my eyes for a while, but this scene brought one of the best of the entire movie, where a German soldier and an English soldier work together to free the horse. The Englishman was played by a familiar face to those of us who love Guy Richie movies - Toby Kebbell. The interaction between these two soldiers as they worked to free the horse was both funny and touching.
It was a good movie, not the movie of the year, but worth the time (long movie -- about 2 and 1/2 hours long) in the theater. Do take your tissues - you'll need them toward the end.
