Rented it last night. I liked it. I thought it showed the savagery of man, both Red & White, during that era. And showed that with all of their differences, they're a lot more alike than they thought.

The one thing I would have like to see was Bales character smack the Harpers Ferry reporter in the face and leave him with a mouthful of bloody chicklets. I guess reporters were no different back then, lol
Be nice, until it's time to not be nice!

Finally watched this last night. I thought it was outstanding. Bale, Pike, Studi (one of my favorites), Cochrane all gave great performances. I really enjoyed the multiple story lines combined with action scenes that actually enhanced the story. Costumes, camera work, scenery were all fantastic. The movie definitely went in an unexpected direction, but in a way that I enjoyed. I give it 9/10.

I'm a huge Wes Studi fan; this one came up short for me. I'm glad I only paid the RB tax. Started out like gangbusters, had a long fizzling fuze for the next 2hrs, and then some hooyah at the end.

Amazon Prime had a rental special on this for $1.99 so I watched it. Great movie.
I liked how it touched on both the brutality of Indians and the white man towards each other, and also the brutal losses they both had to deal with. Strong writing, acting and directing in this one.

Imagine Studi in his outfit in Nam? He is an Oklahoma son.
