From Amazon.co.uk

Despite an irritating, tacked-on voice-over narration that somebody must have thought necessary to make sense of the story (it isn't), Last of the Dogmen is actually a very moving and magical film. Tom Berenger plays a Montana bounty hunter who helps an anthropologist (Barbara Hershey) search for the descendants of a Cheyenne tribe who disappeared in the 1870s. What the two find in a remote mountain stretch is an entire community of Cheyenne who have kept themselves cut off from the modern world. A Dances with Wolves parallel emerges as the white outsiders gradually fit in, but Last of the Dogmen stands up just fine without comparison to any other films. As in Kevin Costner's Oscar-winning movie, however, there are ways in which this film captures a similar sense of yearning, mystery and loss--not least being David Arnold's fine John Barry-esque score. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Tom Berenger stars as a bounty hunter hired to track down three escaped convicts in the Rockies. He comes to the conclusion that the fugitives have been murdered by an ancient tribe of Cheyenne Indians; aided by anthropologist Lillian Sloan (Barbara Hershey), he follows the Indians' trail, putting himself in great danger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 23 Dec 2003
Format:DVD
As a person who has always had a deep interest in Native American history and a person who enjoys nature, I truly loved this film. I was a year trying to find it, it was worth all the trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Film 19 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If you love Native Americans/their culture and a bit of modern day fantasy, you'll love this film. A great 'what if?' senario. Very authentic portrayal of the Sioux Indians.

5.0 out of 5 stars One you can watch over again 21 Oct 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A modern day fantasy that you'd wish would be true.

Follows in the same vein as Dances with Wolves and whilst this is a Native American theme it could apply to any 'lost' culture.

Slightly sentimental but doesn't detract from the storyline.

Watch and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my most favorite westerns ever! 25 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
This is a very sweet movie that is interesting, gripping, has some mystery, romance, and is fine for the whole family. Highly recommended.

It has a lot of beautiful mountain scenery (I always love beautiful scenery) and two wonderful main characters. Tom Berenger is a grumpy, reclusive and rather shy tracker who get sucked into a very unusual quest -- to find a lost Native American Tribe. He is wonderful in his roll -- he does "grumpy but lovable" better than most other actors that come to mind.

Barbara Hershey is fantastic too. Beautiful, brainy, capable, dedicated and a perfect compliment to Berenger's character. I really admired her in this film.

Remember, you must suspend your sense of disbelief with some of the plot elements. We're not talking reality here, but delightful escape and fantasy. There's a little bit of "Lost Horizon" going on. (Which is a plus!) Lovely film, great ending. A big thumbs up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dogmen Summary 4 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
Enchanting and exciting story of a rediscovered lost Indian tribe. Similar in style and content to the Jurassic Park films I thought - especially in the use of the stunning natural scenery.
If you like family action films/westerns or are even remotely interested in the history of native americans, then this film is well worth viewing. Acting was first class and the depiction of the Cheyenne custumes, weaponary & lifestyle was superb to witness.
A beautiful haunting score added to my personal enjoyment of this picture.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dam good film! 30 Jun 2009
Format:DVD
This is a wonderful film which share the same level as Last of the Mohicans, Green Mile and Dances With Wolves etc. Why this never hit the box is beyond me. The plot was very strong right through to the end, the scenery was breathtakingly refreshing. The acting was top notch and the magical aura was mesmerising. Such a beautiful film , My partner is an extremely fussy film watcher but this captured him and now I bought it for him. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable adventure 16 Sep 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because of existing reviews. It starts well, a few surprises, tense and taught. The story holds up. The leads play well off each other. It kept my attention for about the first 75 minutes...but then the ending feels rushed and chaotic which was shame because up until then it was very good. I have given it four stars but really i would give it 3.5.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best movie I have ever seen. 31 Jan 2007
By Iann
Format:DVD
I just love this wonderful movie. I have watched it over and over again since I bought it two weeks ago. Tom Berenger is outstandig as Lewis Gates and he and Barbara Hershey is lovely together. They seem to have really enjoyed working together in this movie. And Zip, the dog, is great.

This is a movie that makes you feel good after you have seen it. It is my all time favorite movie. You must see it!!!!!
