The Apache Indians have reluctantly agreed to settle on a US Government approved reservation. Not all the Apaches are able to adapt to the life of corn farmers. One in particular, Geronimo, is restless. Pushed over the edge by broken promises and necessary actions by the government, Geronimo and thirty or so other warriors form an attack team which humiliates the government by evading capture, while reclaiming what is rightfully theirs.

Agreeable movie about the famous Indian leader and set on spectacular landscapes
The film talks upon Geronimo(Wes Studi), chief of Apaches Chiricaguas. The continuous humiliation in reservoir of San Carlos caused the bursting of riots commanded by Geronimo and his Indians group. They will confront against American cavalry in charge of General Crook (Gene Hackman), but later he'll be substituted by other hardest commander. Two officials (Jason Patrick and Matt Damon) will go out looking for Geronimo to make a peace treatise.
In the film there are wonderful outdoors shot on location of Utah territory, and displays action,shoot outs,violence and though is slow-moving, isn't tiring neither dreary. The picture is based on historical characters: Geronimo, Cohise and general Crook. At the main and supporting cast are the actors who usually play Indians roles : Wes Study,Rodney A. Gant,Steve Reeves because they are native origin. Director Walter Hill gets too much experience on western genre ,thus: ¨The long riders¨, ¨Will Bill¨.Besides has modern western: ¨Streets of fire¨and ¨extreme prejudice¨. The Long riders is deemed an excellent movie but Will Bill is considered boring and awful. Geronimo is similar height to long riders. The motion picture didn't obtain success and was a real flop in box office ,in spite of the extraordinary sets, glimmer cinematography and atmospheric Ry Cooder musical score . The movie will like to Indian western fans. Rating: good . Well catching.
