Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that a few exciting scenes and eye-catching location photography keep this sequel afloat, but it's nothing compared to the original. Those who haven't seen the original shouldn't risk this one, as it's involved plot may not hold their interest. A barn fire and Alec's struggle to survive when he and his friend are lost in the desert are mildly frightening, but shouldn't bother most children. Children under 8 will have problems sitting still through the involved plot. Some grade-school children may be disappointed that the black stallion is absent from much of the film. This is mainly for fans of the original.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


There are sword fights and other battles of the type common to classic adventure movies. There is also an incident of arson as the villains try to capture the black stallion.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Many of the Arab characters are too stereotypical. (However, there are some benign, even heroic Arabs.) Alec's decision to stowaway on a plane headed overseas is hardly appropriate behavior, and the film makes a mild joke of his mother's concern for him.
