Did You Know?


The spear-launching tool used In the movie is called an "Atlatl". Spear-throwers appear very early in human history in several parts of the world, and have survived in use in traditional societies until the present day, as well as being revived in recent years for sporting purposes. In the United States the Nahuatl word atlatl is often used for revived uses of spear-throwers. Australian aborigines called their spear throwing tool a Woomera. It is still used by traditional owners in rural areas of Australia, and was in common use by first people throughout the country only 230 years ago. See more »

User Reviews

Original and there is nothing wrong with that.
13 December 2020 | by jaimecaveSee all my reviews

First of all comparing this to Wind River is not a useful critique. Wind River addresses the high rate at which Indigenous Women in North America/Canada go missing around exploratory mining sites.

This movie was a look at individuals who are flawed and who eek out their own idea of justice, to exact revenge or protect others. It's not a box office hit but it is underrated.

After 20 mins I forgot all about Jamie Lannister and Grace Shelby.

I recommend watching, if you enjoy story telling and can put away preconceptions.
