Audience Reviews for I Will Fight No More Forever


Huge fan of Native American culture, and we get a lot of it in this one. The Nez Pearce tribes must outsmart the military or wind up on the Reservation. Not the best of performances, but very interesting topic which does a good job of treating the subject matter with respect.

130628: When I saw this was another made for TV movie, my heart dropped. I stuck with it however and it turned out to be a pretty good movie. Sad but interesting little piece of history. Features James Whitmore and a young Sam Elliott, both whom I found very enjoyable.

This government infuriates me every time I watch this, yet they give the Mexicans everything , illegal or not.
