Movie Info

This excessively-violent western centers on the brutal and inhuman acts performed upon the Cheyenne by the cavalry in retaliation for an attack the Cheyennes launched upon a regiment. Much of the story centers on a love story between the two survivors of the latter attack.

Tries to compare this atrocity in Indian history with the My Lai massacre occurring in modern times during the Vietnam War.

May 31, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

A clumsy, anachronistic Western which casts Candice Bergen as a shrill female lead who's a lot more 1970 than 1864. Unconvincing.

October 2, 2007 | Rating: 3/10

Bloody, overrated film that fails to stand the test of time

February 19, 2007 | Rating: 2/5

1970's message movie is one of first pro Native American.
