Walter Farley’s classic tale has been adapted with amazing facility by Carol Ballard and executive producer Francis Ford Coppola. Even though its essential features (shipwrecked child, desert island, magical stallion, ’40s New York) represented appalling production problems, the film jettisons most of the cuteness implicit in its theme and handles the material with dream-like clarity. A magnificently well-crafted movie. (Time Out London).
