Goofs

One of the characters refers to the ten of spades as the death card. Most card readers/ fortune tellers refer to the ace of spades as the death card. The ten of spades is most often interpreted as indicating a journey (though, to be fair, death could be seen as a journey). See more »

Quotes

Chick Lyman: Out here we don't pry into anybody's affairs. It just ain't healthy.
Bob Mulford: Well, if my health isn't threatened by anything more dangerous than you, I won't worry much.

To the last man a second time
31 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Apacheria Land of the Apaches is the setting for this remake of the Lost Patrol which was set in... Iraq! Here frontier characters duel the Apaches and each other for survival in a merciless landscape. Except for the setting and the Americanization of the characters it is a scene by scene retelling of John Ford's film. The cast members are all familiar faces film character actors with the emphasis on actor instead of Star. The film was probably a second feature tryout for its director and some cast members. Solid but not top drawer. A nice change would've been showing the warriors of Apache Jack's band of renegades reactions to their own losses. This film and it's predecessors the Ford film and the Soviet film that may have inspired them Ten would be seen in Zoltan Korda's Sahara with Humphrey Bogart, The Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Duel at Diablo,and Ulzana's Raid.
