    I agree that the fight sequences are something to be marvelled at but what deeply disturbed me was the scenes in which horses were thrown about in life defying somersalts. At first I thought it was some good special effects at work until I slowed the picture down to frame by frame and there you could see a definate cut line at the top of the legs showing a horse with beautiful muscle tone and unmarked coat shining clean but below are the legs of a mud stained coarse haired legs of an old hack!!! SHAME SHAME SHAME on you makers of this film obviously the RSPCA has no jurisdictioin where this film was made. I wonder how many poor old farm hacks were killed or maimed then killed in the fight sequence takes. Looking at the stunts it is obvious trip wires were used to halt the horses at full gallop.
