Squanto: A Warrior's Tale Reviews

  • Oct 28, 2019

    Adam Beach of 'Law & Order: SVU' fame stars in one of his earliest roles as one of the most famous Native Americans despite the movie's events being historically inaccurate yet Beach plays the character with great amount of strength, heart, depth, and bravery Sir George is also played by a young Michael Gambon (pre-Harry Potter fame) Squanto lives in his village and is married to his love, Nakooma things change however when the English during the Mayflower voyage sail into their land in the late 1600's what seems like a friendly invitation aboard to the new world turns into an unexpected betrayal as the English capture and enslave the natives for Sir King George to profit off of them, Squanto is then separated from his homeland and beloved it's a strange land Squanto finds himself in as he's sold, put on for a circus display with a bear, and finds refuge in a monastery the monks take him in and teach their values and customs yet all Squanto wants is to go home Sir George is only interested in exploiting Squanto seeing him and his people as nothing but blood thirsty savages feeling far superior he believes a natural order only exists; god, then angels then kings, then human beings in Squanto's case Sir George only sees him as livestock it doesn't matter if you're from the new world or the one you were born into, we are all human beings, it's much better to learn about another culture than to make enemies, hatred only leads to more hatred, some people in this world use bullying or force to get what they want, if war is the last resort do we just keep killing one another until we're nothing but bones and ashes, we may speak different tongues, have different customs but there is only 1 moon as well as 1 sun that everyone can share together a watchable Disney film almost along the lines of Pocahontas but of course it's understandable to nitpick it for its lack of actual detail from the history books but take it for what it's worth

    It was a great, very exciting and very entertaining Disney live-action family adventure. It had great cinematography, really great cast, really great music, action adventure, drama, great characters, really great costumes, makeup and a great storyline. I haven't seen this movie in a very long time. I thought Adam Beach did a great job for playing the role of Squanto and he's very hot. I would recommend this movie to kids and adults.
