Greatest Film From the Navajo Nation
9 February 2015 | by jrs_mfhs_07See all my reviews

Firstly, This Film Gave The Navajo People a Truly More Accurate Portrayal of Their Language, Given That Other Films Have Tried to Succeed in This Venture Have Truly Failed; Windtalkers (Was an Abomination to the Story Of Our Heroes the Navajo Code Talkers)and Other Films Have Used Other Native Americans Try to Speak Our Language, but They Do NOT Come Close.

The Story is a great metaphor for a story I have heard from one of my elders and I was truly amazed at how this film portrayed that story and kept details and the respect it gave to the story that must revolve around not just the Navajo folklore but others as well; you see all Native tribes have a story about space and time and I felt this film simply gave a representation of that story.

As for the cast, they have done an amazing job; be that this is an Independent film the acting is suitable for most to understand. The plot is one many will be on the edge of their seats as the film progresses to its climatic ending.

Travis Holt Hamilton has done a great job with this being his first Sci-Fi Film tying in with a Native American Story. This Film is a MUST WATCH and is a Rare Gem...Many of Hollywood's films revolving around our Navajo lifestyle have simply been stereotypical.
