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.

The steam locomotive used to transport the Apache band at the end is an oil burning locomotive. A phony load of wood sits atop the tender's fuel-oil bunker. The engine is making thick black smoke, an indication of an oil fired locomotive. Such thick smoke is an indication of poor fuel burning, something movie directors request, but hardly real-world practice. Properly operated steam locomotives make much less smoke, regardless of whether fuel is wood, coal, or oil. See more »

'Let's start with this: All written history is revisionist. The actual events are revisited and revised in the perspective of the "re-visitor." That said, this remarkably well written, well acted, and generally well executed movie is likely the best account of the "Geronimo Campaign" out there. Head and shoulders above much of the other junk out there about this important American figure. It is, to boot, beautifully filmed and deftly directed. And the narrative approach worked perfectly with this subject. Well worth a couple of viewing hours by anyone who sincerely wants to know what was up with all that.'
