  • 1 star "Absolutely horrible movie! Politically correct on every count, fake history. The director had/has no idea of how a woman, indian or inhabitants of the old west would act; it's almost like a middle ages morality play put on by the church; in this case, the Church of Modern Political Correctness subsidized by the Nancy Pelosi and Pocahantas"
  • 5 stars "Well Done"
  • 5 stars "Representation of indigenous history"
