Truly exceptional from a cinematic point of view
20 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A Civil War veteran treats his family like they are in the military--with drills and him firmly in command. However, his oldest son has had enough and stomps off in disgust. The father, in turn, disowns the boy. However, soon after this there is an Indian attack on the homestead and the boy springs into action. It's absolutely filled with gunfire, smoke and action from here on in the movie.

When I watched "Fighting Blood", I was less interested in the story and much more captivated by the amazing cinematography. While the film was made in the early days of movies, some of the camera-work was truly on the cutting edge. Moving cameras, a breathtaking view of the besieged home from well above (either by using a crane or filming from a hillside) and a nice delicate touch directing make this one of D.W. Griffith's best films--at least technically speaking. Very impressive.
