The Three Warriors
18 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. It was the best movie I have ever seen. The cast were all wonderful actors. The movie was about three generations of Native American men. The movie showed the love the three have for each other and how the generations follow the traditions and spiritual beliefs. It is about love and respect that the generations have for one another. I have always enjoyed movies and Native American lives and beliefs. I think that they had a rough live but their culture is full of love and respect for one another. I would like to have sat down with my grandfather and learn more about my culture and beliefs. I think it is a beautiful thing to see the generations see eye to eye. I have been looking for this movie for many years and I have not found anyone that can order it for me. If anyone knows where I can purchase this wonderful movie, please let me know. Your help is appreciated. Thank You, Corine Romero
