Roman (Matthias Schoenaerts), a convict in a rural Nevada prison who struggles to escape his violent past, is required to participate in an "outdoor maintenance" program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Spotted by a no-nonsense veteran trainer (Bruce Dern) and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider (Jason Mitchell), Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program, where he finds his own humanity in gentling an especially unbreakable mustang.

  • 2 stars "Totally unrealistic depiction of life in prison. As if (violent) prisoners are chitchatting all the time through!!, and being that kind of nice to each other. The story is not based on real life in prison. The script is pretty boring, also not realistic. Some turning points in the movie / script are poorly written and overacted. Boring! I gave it two stars because I like to watch beautiful horses. But better not to waste time on that small town movie."
  • 2 stars "Muddled, bad photography, contrived ending, missing parts of a story that leads no where, no resolution at end, nothing. Waste of time, but could have been a good movie, IF they fired the director, the writer and the idiot filming it."
  • 4 stars "I really enjoyed Mustang!"
