Low-budget but entertaining.
14 November 2014 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Yes, as already said, it's a low-budget film and certainly not the best western made, but I still found it entertaining. Like many westerns, there are a lot of inaccuracies and things that were inconsistent with historical facts. It did motivate me, as did some of the comments made by other reviewers to do a little research and I found that historically, there were Seminole Indians that were originally from Florida that went to Texas. They were originally led by the Seminole Chief "Wild Cat" (Coacoochee)- not "Black Cat". Just do a search on him to learn more about it. I believe the story and the acting are adequate enough to give this movie a watch.
