News & Interviews for Custer of the West
Critic Reviews for Custer of the West
Capable, audience-involving adventure on the visual level which doesn't rise to the epic stature but is content to resume the 'facts' about the Seventh Cavalry without taking a coherent attitude to them.
It's an ambitious and occasionally stylish work, expertly crafted but let down by a script which doesn't quite decide what angle to take on its controversial protagonist.
So much strange cutting and botching went into the job that it is nearly impossible to follow the story and that the moment of Custer's great crisis of some sort is completely impossible to understand.
This film hints at being a successful epic but is ultimately just a modest biography of Civil War general George Custer.
A lumbering biopic on the misunderstood courageous Civil War and Indian fighter General George Armstrong Custer.
Audience Reviews for Custer of the West
Sprawling, impressively shot but extremely over long, by about an hour, history revision. Shaw is good in the lead.
