Audience Reviews for Windwalker

Now, here's a movie from childhood, and one that I can never get tired of watching. An intriguing Native American film. This is a story about one man's life journey in finding true love, having a family, and striving to live after that family is destroyed. Great cast- James Remar, Nick Ramus, and Trevor Howard. Worth seeing!

Heh heh... nothing but non-native actors portraying the native americans in this film. Blue eyed grandfather Trevor Howard famous from Superman portrays Windwalker, the spiritual grandfather back to finish his mission. The only thing I enjoyed was the music which was beautiful and added a touch to this somewhat good movie. A nice story, but not all 100% native american.
