User Reviews

Is this supposed to be good?

Wow. I haven't seen a film this bad in a really long time. Based on Tecumseh and his last days, uniting Indian groups to fight against William Harrison, this film does nothing to justify the historical points, and make it interesting. It seems as if they just decided to make a film with the same characters as events in the past, take the places and make a movie. The problem...we don't care about the characters. They are not fully developed enough to feel about what they're doing, or what they're working towards. It also doesn't help that it gets confusing trying to keep track of who is who. The actors are just plain bad as well, and the dialogue that they're given is just laughable and comes off as cheesy.

THE MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THIS FILM IS: NO BLOOD! I thought that these wars were supposed to be bloody? If you're trying to make a movie with wars historically accurate, blood is a must to fully draw the viewer into the film. It makes you feel as if you are actually present, watching the events unfold before your eyes. These types of movies, should not even be allowed to be TV-Movie-ized, or suffer from non-gore, family-friendly G, PG, or PG-13 ratings. Shame on Hallmark for this. That is probably the highest factor in this film's bad rating. Let this be a note in the future to all companies making war movies.

Rating: Unrated, but Made-for-TV (Contains-Nothing objectionable except the bad acting, dialogue and unrealistic war sequences).

Final Grade: 1/10
