I know the play is very popular and there are some spectacular aspects with the portrayal of the horses. Personally I enjoyed the movie more for its story development and character development.

Description

War Horse centers on the relationship between Albert, a teenager growing up on a farm in Devon, England, just before World War I, and his beloved half-thoroughbred horse, Joey. Albert’s family is poor, and his father raises cash by selling Joey to the cavalry as the war begins in 1914. Too young to enlist, Albert craves news of his horse, which was shipped to the battlefield in France. Three years later, Albert runs away to join the army, determined to find Joey and bring him home. Meanwhile, this smart and brave horse is pulled into service on both sides of the conflict before being left on his own in no-man’s-land, surrounded by trenches and barbed wire. It’s a universal story about hope in the face of adversity, and the production is an anthem for peace.

Running Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes (with a 15-minute intermission)

Parental Guidance: War Horse has very broad appeal to theatergoers of any age. The production contains themes of military action and is therefore recommended for ages 10 and older.
