Obobo:Amen!
Jimmy J. 'Little J' Teeters:Well if I may approach the bench your Honor, first, I ain't ever personally enslaved nobody so, Time, you can kiss my White ass. Second of all, if there was a train coming through right now, I'd be on it and you'd be on it,except the only difference would be, I'd be gambling on it and you'd be fetching my chips like a little houseboy becuase you can't even cheat right. Now, can I get a witness?

Great History made into a pointless cartoon, 19 June 2011
Author: Turtle Heart from Pantelleria, Italy

The best and greatest thing about this film, the only thing, is an opening narrative by the great Woody Strode, who was a unique and ground breaking African American actor, who was also 75 per cent Native American. He sets us up with the premise that there are many great stories of the African Americans who moved west, built towns, became cowboys, and whose stories are never told. From this magical and promising beginning we enter a cartoon, clichéd, pointless parody of parody and what could have been a great and serious tale is just another really bad movie. Casting, one note comic actors like Mario Van Peebles as the lead is the first sign that no one here wanted to make a serious film. He is the type of actor that makes one praise the on and off switch on the video player. As many other commentators have noted, this was such a great idea for a film, yet the actors and the director failed, and failed absolutely.
