4.0 out of 5 stars A historically accurate film of the last Apache, 28 Jan 2008
This review is from: Geronimo - An American Legend [DVD] (DVD)
I have discovered this film very lately. The cast is very powerful and the Apache legend Geronimo is played by Wes Studi who acts brilliantly. The life of the Apaches is pictured in a realistic way. The US Government's Indian policy towards the real landowners is shocking. The Apache can not understand why he has to move elsewhere leaving his territory to the White men. Then he takes up arms against Government. Of course the historical development of capitalism stops at no barrier getting away with local cultures, destroying their livelihood, committing incredible crimes aganist humanity. Gene Hackman portrays a general caught between his feelings and the duties placed upon him by the Army.A sad end awaits Geronimo and his friends as they lay their arms after years of fighting. The most devatated ones are the Apaches who betrayed their own people to help the US Army. The Army no longer needs them and they are forced to join their Apache people in the open air prisons.We need to mention the local civilian cowboys who massacre the helpless Indian women and children for the killing's sake. Robert Duvall portrays a famous Apache hunter whose name has to be forgotten.All in all a good film worth watching.
