User Reviews: i just loved the movie….. I’m keen on western movies and this one is just amazing. Indians are so proud and sentimental..wish there are some of them still living like that….the greatest thing of all is the look of the winter hawk…….they could not chose better actor for this movie…but something is not clear to me…if the Indians s good people…how come that winter hawk has left the guy, who killed other Indians, to froze himself to death…. I think it is not logical but anyway the ending has disturbed viewers attention from that point… but that is nothing in compare with the Honor that Indians have in this movie….this is one of the greatest stories about Indians…and one of the ones which are telling how white men are trash….
