Another unforgettable Billy Wirth performance
3 June 2003 | by (Seminole, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a "not to miss" movie and is one of Billy Wirth's finest performances. His portrayal of Sonny Crowkiller is incomparable and though the story ending is disturbing, "War Party" has become one of our family's favorite movies. Other actors who deserve recognition are Dennis Banks, Kevin Dillon & the unforgettable Tantoo Cardinal.
