User Reviews

counterculture era western which is PRO NATIVE AMERICAN

In this film by Michael Winner the native american factions are portrayed as heros while the westward drunk cowboys are the villians which is a far cry from the JOHN WAYNE/ ROY ROGERS tradition. A gritty western I suppose one could say DEATH WISH gone sagebrush, the film features bronson as a native american survival expert who gets revenge on drunken cowboys who destroy his family. Set in the civil war/aftermath era the film is a good production which does not get overblown with effects and daring do like past esterns have. Not HOW THE WEST WAS WON, the film derives it's own identity off it's original story and production values. If you liked HOMBRE, DEATH WISH, and SOUTHERN COMFORT this will be up your alley.
