Goofs

When Little Creek is escaping the army camp, he steals a rifle from one of the soldiers, but drops it after shooting the lock off the stable. A modern repeating rifle would have been invaluable to a Lakota warrior, and he would have certainly kept it when returning to camp rather than reverting to an ax and shield.

In this time frame, Army issue was a single shot carbine, not a modern repeating rifle. See more »

Quotes

The Colonel: There are those in Washington who believe the West will never be settled, the Northern Pacific Railroad will never breach Nebraska, a hostile Lakota will never submit to providence. And it is that kind of small-minded thinking that say this horse will never be tamed. Discipline, time, and patience are the three great levelers.

It was stuck of considered involving in 2002. See more »

Full of Heart, a great story.
22 December 2002 | by NickSDVSee all my reviews

If only ALL animation was this great. This film is classic because it is strong is two simple aspects: Story and Character. The characters in this film are beautifully personified. I felt for all of the characters, and human-animal relationship in the movie works perfectly. The beautiful animation and 3-D computer animation hasn't worked better in any other film. This is a great movie for kids, and for adults who want a classic hero's journey. 8 of 10.
