don't be to harsh its not that bad
3 December 2011 | by (Luton UK) – See all my reviews

I found this to be a good film, not the best, but not bad by a long shot. For all the people complaining about supposed animal cruelty, in a film set in the 1800s with buffalo in the title what exactly did you expect? and guess what animals do bad things to other animals. Heres a newsflash to people, America did decimate the buffalo population and you need to face up to that fact and stop ignoring it. anyway about the film, its not a bad film, takes a while to get going but its OK. if you want to learn something in the style of a western this is the film for you. this film is hard to find in shops but if you look online you will find a way to watch it, and i would recommend doing so. hope this helped
