Storyline

An Englishman, John Morgan, lives 30 years as a Sioux named Man Called Horse. In 1874, gold is discovered in the Black Hills, on tribal land guaranteed to the Sioux in the Laramie Treaty of 1868. Settlers pour in and White provocateurs try to prompt the Sioux to break the treaty (so that all-out war with the US forces will result in the land no longer being under Sioux control). They murder and make it look like Indians were responsible. Man Called Horse helps maintain calm among the tribe, but when tragedy befalls him, it's left to his son Koda and Koda's lover, a Crow named Red Wing, to devise a strategy to keep the argonauts at bay and the Black Hills sacred.

More Slosh

The third, and let's hope, final installment of the "A Man Called Horse" series, this time around Harris is too old and sick to actually ride a horse in the title sequence so the director opts to give the new reign to Michael Beck of "The Warriors" fame who is his son in the film. This time around the enemy is a calvary troop of US marauders who are coming from the Civil War. This is truly an empty film devoid of any new inspirations or themes.
