The Black Stallion Returns is a 1983 movie directed by Robert Dalva, starring Kelly Reno, Vincent Spano, and Allen Garfield. The movie is a sequel to the 1979 hit film, The Black Stallion, and like its predecessor, it is based on the children's novel by Walter Farley. The movie begins with Alec Ramsey (Kelly Reno), who had developed a strong bond with the wild stallion on a deserted island in the first movie, now living in New York City with his mother. One day, he receives a letter from Abu Ben Ishak (Ferdy Mayne), an Arab sheikh, who owned the stallion before Alec found him. In the letter, Abu informs Alec that the Black has been stolen, and he needs Alec's help in finding him.

Despite his mother's initial reluctance to let Alec go, he convinces her and travels to Africa to help Abu find the Black. Once in Africa, Alec meets Raj (Vincent Spano), a streetwise orphan who helps him navigate through the unforgiving terrain. Along the way, they come across various obstacles, including dangerous sandstorms, hostile tribes, and rival horse owners.

As they track down the Black, they learn that he has been taken to a remote desert oasis owned by the evil Kurr (Allen Garfield), who forces his captured horses to race against each other, with the winner claiming a valuable prize. Alec and Raj devise a plan to rescue the Black, but they face numerous challenges, including Kurr's well-trained guards and his own treacherous nature.

As the adventure unfolds, Alec and Raj must rely on their courage, quick-thinking, and the strength of their friendship to save the Black and overcome the obstacles they face.

The Black Stallion Returns is a visually stunning movie, with breathtaking shots of the African landscape and the majestic stallion in action. The performances of the actors are noteworthy, especially Kelly Reno, who portrays Alec with the same intensity and passion that he did in the first movie. Vincent Spano as Raj provides a new dimension to the movie with his street-smart character.

The movie's score by Georges Delerue is memorable, and it perfectly captures the excitement and intensity of the story. The racing scenes are thrilling, and the pacing of the movie is perfect, keeping the audience engaged throughout.

Overall, The Black Stallion Returns is a worthy successor to the original movie, filled with adventure, suspense, and heart. The movie is more than just a sequel; it stands on its own, offering a new story and new insights into the relationship between humans and horses. For fans of the original movie and newcomers alike, The Black Stallion Returns is a must-watch film.
