Windwalker
31 December 2004 | by (Simi Valley, California) – See all my reviews

If you like the old west & tales of Indian spirits, then you'll love "Windwalker". It is truly a classic film & is superbly done in the fashion of Hollywood movie making. The story is also typical of Indian legend. The movie tells of the "Great Spirit" & the power that can beheld from believing & having faith. The performance of all members of the cast is truly an adventure you won't want to miss. This movie is a western adventure that is hard to duplicate in todays times as far as movie making & story telling goes. "Pull your hat down tight, take a deep seat & let Er buck" cause this is one picture you're gonna love, come hell or high water! David Garber
