Set in the autumn and winter seasons of 1875 Montana, the tribe of Chief Winterhawk are ill. His friend, trapper Guthrie, suggests to ask the white men in a nearby settlement for help, but the white people, learning that Wintehawk's people are infected by smallpox, drive him away. Then two fur trappers/smugglers kill Winterhawk's companion. In retribution, Winterhawk abducts a young woman, named Clayanna, and her daughter from the settlement and takes her away. Clayanna's father organizes a posse of several trackers to follow Winterhawk and his band of warriors to get Clayanna back at any cost. However, the two evil trappers who killed Winterhawk's friend are also tagging along one step behind everyone. Written by

When Brian Shaw, the owner of the Edmonton Oil Kings moved his junior hockey team to Portland, Oregon, he named the team the "Winter Hawks" after this film. In order to save money, the team bought used jerseys from the Chicago Blackhawks, which is why the Portland Winter Hawks continue to have jerseys that are similar to the NHL Blackhawks. See more »
I never finished this picture so this may not be a completely fair evaluation. Seen on AMC it was introduced as a film made in the spirit of Tarentino and others like him where the film maker found his own extras and essentially financed it on a very limited budget. I watched only a half hour and kept dozing off. The actors mostly acted like they had never acted before. No emotion, no realism to what they did or said. And the score! I got so tired of hearing bass voices droning "Winterhawke" in the background that I had to mute it several times. Maybe it picks up further along and gets better. The lead lady was decent in her acting as was her little brother. Who knows, I don't expect to ever go back and find out. 1.5 stars out of 4
