Poor hair extensions
3 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In a fantastic adaptation of this period classic the only major disappointment was the poor use of hair extensions when Yaichachi grew old. A fellow enthusiast, Jessica Maltby, wept on several occasions during the film, and i myself must confess that i shed a tear in a particularly moving part of the screenplay where a young Nick is told off by his mother. The finest performance in my opinion was that of Pocatello's horse, who was inspirational in the part as Pocatello's horse. Some of the action scenes are also well worth a look, especially the fight scene with another Indian tribe, where realistic punches are thrown with breathtaking accuracy.
