Critic Reviews for The American West Season 1

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

The cinematography is admirable, and the accounts from historians and academics are sound. But the sight of Burt Reynolds in rose-tinted glasses explaining that George Armstrong Custer "was a hell of a soldier" does little to inform the project.

What's fresh in this retelling... is the degree to which it has gone in for re-creation as opposed to documentation, and the fact that it has drafted movie cowboys... as talking-head commentators alongside the customary scholars.
