Burt Reynolds once again showed us the art of interpretation...
2 March 1999 | by (Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil) – See all my reviews

" Cherokee Kid " is, with certainty, a good entertainment. It is a light, funny film and ideal for the children, Sinbad interprets Cherokee Kid with claw and efficiency, it is really impossible to leave off sympathizing with his character and with the simple and beautiful plot, that teaches important values for all of us, as friendship, love, accuses and redemption, all this done for a public of all the ages in an accessible way! but, with certainty, the best performance of this film is due to Burt Reynolds. He had not still made the film that threw him again to the stardom, Boogie Nights, but even so, he offers a pretty interpretation, worthy of applauses. Reynolds interprets Otter Bob, a simple and humble man, who knows the wild life, and who becomes Cherokee Kid's best friend. In certain scenes, Burt Reynolds shows us all his competence and love for the art of the interpretation, and it is literally impossible to leave off being moved in these parts, mainly for not being just another actor who is saying the sentences, but yes a dear and well-known movies' legend, a true part of the history of Hollywood!his character is a wild man, but with a good heart, of gold, that doesn't think twice in jumping in front of a bullet to save his only and best friend... It is also incredible how it was needed a young director with intelligence, sensibility and vision, called Paul Thomas Anderson, to show to the world that the man who one day had been the largest star of the world was still alive and that he still knew how to act. Congratulations, Burt Reynolds. Once again you showed us what it takes to become a real star...
