Despite having his eyes closed, Ned Dobb screams with agony nearly a second before the Huron even touches his poisoned foot with the heated arrow head, at a moment when it is still at least three inches away from it. See more »
This movie is the most authentic film I have ever seen on this subject. Its use of historical accuracy is unmatched. People, cities and harbors,were dirty,sooty and garbage ridden as depicted in this film. Its use of language is outstanding (Donald Sutherland's english, Al Pacino's fragmented, broken speech) etc,. Anyone interested in history clamors for more movies such as this one with real authenticity, instead of the usual hollywood blockbuster style films that ignore attention to detail.
