This review is from: Chato's Land [DVD] (1972) (DVD)
Watching this movie, it is hard to believe that Charles Bronson was not actually an Apache of the nineteenth century. He is splendid in the part of an American Indian unjustly treated. An exaggerated tale of racial prejudice, the story does at least give one the satisfaction of seeing some really nasty characters get what they deserve. The trouble I have with the film is that the baddies are over-blown, it is hard to credit the mindless cruelty, the murderous brutality of the whites, even given the insight into American values revealed by the Iraq War: and the depiction of one or two whites with a sense of justice does not counter-balance these portrayals. A good movie for those with a taste for violence but perhaps distasteful for the more discerning. Not one of Michael Winner's best.
