The Reviews for The Dark Horse (2014) 1080p


"You're not what they're making you think they are"Reviewed byRaven-1969Vote: 9/10

Many believe that if you do not control others, they will control you, and if you do not toughen up and beat others down, you will not succeed in life. Genesis Potini, a modern day Maori who struggles with poverty and severe bi-polar disorder, fights against this notion. His unlikely weapon of choice is a chess board. In this true story, Genesis – a former chess champion - attempts to find purpose in life by teaching his game to a group of at-risk youth, including his nephew. Faced with the choice of buying the kids game boards or sleeping with a roof over his head, Genesis opts for the former. He encourages the kids to think about their special powers and all the good things that they are. "You're not what they're making you think they are," he tells them. He struggles with this notion himself. People insist he is crazy, sick and should not be around kids. Genesis is not even sure of himself. His own brother, who once taught him chess, confronts him the most. "This is the real world," shouts his brother "not f-ing stories!" Genesis really resonates with me, for there are certainly those who think they must manipulate others in order to succeed. Despite some awkward moments, the true story of "the Dark Horse" is thrilling, beautiful and hopeful. Seen at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

StunningReviewed byErica-krogerVote: 9/10

Wow! A powerful story beautifully and sensitively portrayed by the entire cast. There are just no weak actors here. Sterling performances throughout. Cliff Curtis, of course, provides a textured, understated, touching and so believable performance of Genesis. James Rolleston is no less superb with a mature, complex and sensitive delivery of his character Mana. But every character is subtly differentiated, thanks to both great writing and acting, and makes for compelling and engaging viewing. The script is masterfully written and shares a biting truth without being overly emotionally driven. A hopeful story too, but so real and so thought provoking. I couldn't recommend it strongly enough. I will certainly be back for another viewing.

Cliff CurtisReviewed byAgnetha IcelandicaVote: 10/10

One of New Zealand's BEST actors, and one of the world's most talented. Cliff is totally convincing in any role, and I believe he is terribly under-appreciated. Hollywood needs to wake up and start looking around away from their little private club, and to realise that there are staggeringly talented actors out there who deserve top roles. Cliff Curtis has made me hate him and love him in his many guises, and is a true talent without the hype. What a superb portrayal of a character in this moving, yet heart-warming film. I knew nothing of this story and now I realise how much I missed, so Cliff has honoured the telling in a full and complete way. What a brilliant job.
