Eddie Spears is SO HOT!
22 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie itself is great! A lot of great performances.. and great inspirational story line, proves if you work hard enough you can attain anything!..

also..

It's nice to see Native Americans playing other roles besides whaling warriors on the great plains.. not only is it stereotypical, but unrealistic.. Hollywood needs to realize that we as Native Americans have a bigger story to tell, we can surpass any crisis in life just as those who battle life's struggles.. I'm proud to put my comment on here not only as a avid movie lover, collector and critic, but as a Proud Member of the First Nations People!

Stay Strong, Stay Proud!!

Love Ya Eddie, Keep up The Great Work; you make us all proud!!
