The Mountain Men
23 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Great Movie with Two Excellent Actors and a Great Supporting Cast. The Scenes are all colorful and interesting. It is a Movie you will want to see over and over again. Bill Tyler and Henry Frap make you feel like your there watching them in person. Chief Iron Belly is another unforgettable character. The scenery is fantastic. I also was very impressed with the Native American Costumes. An American Adventure Movie with Two of Hollywoods Greatest Stars. Charlton Heston and Brien Keith should be remembered in the History Books for this Movie as one of their Best. Humor in this film along with Bitter reality. I wish that more movies like this one were being produced today.
