The Mystic Warrior
31 October 2006 | by spade-13See all my reviews

I used to have this series on tape a long time ago. It was a great story!! If you like a good mini-series and appreciate Native American culture, this movie would be a must buy in my opinion.

It takes you through the life and death of Ahbleza, from his issues from childhood and his determination as a man who just wanted to live in peace! It also contains the power of having visions to see events happening in the future and the trials he goes through learning the ways of the land. It also shows the brutality of war between rival tribes and the coming of the white man to their lands.

I just want to know why hasn't this movie been put on DVD yet, so I can buy it! It needs to be on DVD!
