Goofs

A scene at the fort fixes on the Stars and Stripes, shown with eight rows and five columns of stars or a total of 40 stars. There never has been a 40-star US flag. The flag star count jumped from 38 to 43 on July 4, 1890 four years after Geronimo's surrender. Nor could the flag have been an unofficial US flag because the 40th and 41st states, North and South Dakota, respectively, did not join the union until November 2, 1889. See more »

Best Film Portrayal of Geronimo Ever
31 March 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie on TNT when it originally aired and really enjoyed it. This is one of TNT's best original movies ever. Sadly, TNT never airs this movie, and I think they have buried it, since it doesn't appear on their website as one of their original movies either.

This movie really properly portrayed the plight of the Apache during the 19th and even into the 20th century. Something that it's all-star cinema counterpart failed to do. Native Americans really got screwed over by the US government. None of the actors are very well known, but Joseph Runningfox (who I assume is an actual native american) did a great job as the Apache hero.

This movie manages to stay interesting, yet remain historically accurate and not portray the Apaches as unprovoked savages as in most movies about the legend. I wish TNT would play this movie again, or at least put the movie on video.

Rating: 8/10
