Hidalgo is a long movie about a man (half-Native American, half-Anglo) at the end of the cowboys and Indians era who takes part in a race across 3,000 miles of the Middle East for a prize of $100,000. It is supposed to be based on a true story but if you search the Internet, you will find out it more like "flavored" by a true story.
I liked the film, even though it didn't blow me away. The hero, Norton (Viggo Mortenen) is rather ordinary but has a certain nobility about him. He has dignity and respects it in others.
If you have the time, sit back and enjoy.
