I recall seeing this as a review copy (I am a journalist) or in some other fashion when it first came out. Sturdy retelling of the legend, as best I can recall. I know I liked the cast quite a bit, and it was my first exposure to (or my first real impression of) Adam Beach, who has since gone on to bigger and better things.
