Audience Reviews for Eagle's Wing

A Look at Stars in there Early Days. Martin Sheen has very young and trapper who comes across a great Native American's White Horse at his burial site, he takes the horse that was left to die along with the great chief and his squaw. Mean while another Chief played by no other then Sam Waterston has his eyes on the horse, Sheen will stop at nothing for this horse, he even passes up a beautiful women. Its not Spaghetti, but just a western. Made for a eye opening look at early Sheen. The only bad thing about the movie was the ending, and off into the sunset he rode. I'd watch it again in the future, distant future, But I will give it 3 stars,
