Impressive British western making justice to the indians!!!
29 March 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Do you know that DVD which l'd bought like a bargain, having Martin Sheen in lead role??? Yeah, l put it in my western's section and every time that l make a choice l've been avoided it, thinking Sheen and Waterston making a western, hum ....I don't know, but at last l took it, l'd stayed appalled in so unaccustomed approach of those usual westerns, firstly indian's role is always best suitable by mexican's actors, this we have Waterston, to American's characters they call some specific actors already with previous relation on western, they casting Sheen, the plot describing on humanized native Indians as a thief than bloody warriors, providential accuracy. both leading actors have a duel for a white stallion, taking it as personal proud, just few lines spoke by Sheen, Waterston didn't say a thing, the final part on thrilling chase across the desert was so fabulous, a flawless action, a British production try demystify the old western by a dared new aspect provides by Rank Organization on unusual way, highly underrated by overall pattern, it deserves a second look for those who really enjoy lost gem on dust of past time!!!!
