No a "B Western", but a "Z Western"!
29 October 2006 | by The_ColonelSee all my reviews

I saw this when it first came out and liked it. Probably because I love westerns and westerns about the cavalry. So when I saw it available on DVD under the title of "The Buffalo Soldiers", I had to have it. When I watched it I couldn't believe that I liked such schlock! Terrible! Saw that it was filmed at the actual Fort Davis in Texas, but that didn't help the lousy script, acting, directing, filming, editing and whatever else there is to rate. The actual Buffalo Soldiers must be rolling in their graves at this one. What an embarrassment. Save your money and bypass this piece of garbage! If you want to see a better movie about these heroes called Buffalo Soldiers, get yourself a copy of Danny Glover's film. Yeah, yeah it ends on a lame note, but it is sure better than this waste of film!
