Best portrayal of Geronimo so far.
4 November 2001 | by (North Yorkshire,England.) – See all my reviews

This version of the "Geronimo Legend" is the best so far,considering some of the other attempts to portray the Apache war leader,and tries to adhere to historical facts concerning his life.The result is a pretty fair movie,utilizing some pretty heavyweight Native American acting talent such as Joseph Running Fox,Nick Ramus,Michael Greyeyes,Jimmy Herman,August Schellenburg,Michelle St.John and Lusheia Lenaburg. The movie is well done,with plenty of action sequences as Geronimo and his band battle Mexican forces,later fighting the white Americans,when they in turn,encroached upon Apache land.Most of the Apache leaders of the time are also featured-Cochise,Mangus Coloradas,Nana and Juh,all relevant figures at the time and an influence in the struggle against overwhelming forces. The movie also portrays the sensitive side of the Native American character.The sorrow and despair of finding your family slaughtered,the sheer frustration of San Carlos,the hopelessness of resistance against a foe you know you can't beat. If anybody out there is interested in Native American history,this movie is well worth a watch.You won't be disappointed.
