Storyline

An ex-cavalry sergeant, being escorted to prison after being convicted of a crime he didn't commit, finds himself leading the remnants of a unit that has been under Indian attack at a fort. The commanding officer has been killed, the Indians vastly outnumber them, and the only bargaining chip they have is the fact that they have captured the Indian chief's son.

The ending like the acting
4 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The male leads were basically fine but the women and the Indians, such poor acting! I own 250 Westerns and this is likely the worst one. Enjoy Cavalry vs Indians and not filmed this way anymore. A weakness to buy this one. If viewed, make it a midnighter.

The ending comes up sudden and most unsatisfactory and silly.

Anyways, always good to see more Westerns released. Guess never a Western not worthy for a watch, even if need be a midnighter.

Rated it a 4. Struggled to say a 5 but that ending and poor acting! Worse if not a Western.

A recent release "White Feather" was much better and very acceptable.
