Audience Reviews for War Party

I finally found this online this morning and i tell ya... one of the hardest movies to find on the planet! If you ever get chance to have a look at this film i suggest to do so u wont regret it! Don't however look for over the top acting here but a very good st idea of oryline. The mayor and reservation leader decide in order to pull more tourists into the blackfeet reservation they come up with an idea to re-enact a battle between the U.s calvary and the Blackfeet indians starring any locals who want to participate. The tribal leader's son Sonny (Billy Wirth) and his best friend Skitty Harris ( Kevin Dillon) take part in the re-enactment and after one of the drunken men playing a u.s. cavalry uses live ammunition and kills one of the blackfeet youth sends Sonny and Skitty and their own formed War Party fleeing from the police, the army,and brings to surface hidden racial tensions that have been silently brewing through the years between the blackfeet people and the other townsfolks. A great little movie that shows the strong bonds of friendship and brotherhood yet showing how much racial tension unfortunatly still exists. If i ever find this on dvd or even vhs for that matter it will be a much welcome addition to the Kyle collection. A must see!
