The excitement begins when famed horseman Frank T. Hopkins (Mortensen) enters a grueling competition - "The Ocean Of Fire" - with his mustang Hidalgo. Together, they must not only survive a 3,000-mile race across blistering desert terrain; they must also thwart evil competitors who vow victory at any cost. Witness a sandstorm of epic proportions; a swarm of locusts so massive it obliterates the relentless sun, deadly traps that defy imagination. Based on a true story, this astounding tale of personal triumph will take your breath away.

Formulaic, overly simple, too violent for tweens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has a lot of violence, including swords, knives, and guns. We see the result of the massacre of Native Americans at Wounded Knee, with dead bodies everywhere. Characters and horses are shot, impaled, stabbed, and beheaded and one is threatened with castration. There are many tense scenes of peril, including quicksand. Characters drink, and Hopkins develops a drinking problem. A character smokes a hookah. There is some strong language and some crude humor. A woman offers Hopkins money and sex to get him to throw the race. The problem of prejudice against women and against those of other races, particularly mixed races, is a theme of the movie.
