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.

Critic Reviews for Soldier Blue

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The film is too mixed up to qualify as a serious allegory about anything.

Oct 23, 2004 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 2, 2007 | Rating: 3/10

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

Feb 19, 2007 | Rating: 2/5

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