4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining., 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Geronimo - An American Legend [DVD] (DVD)
A well made film that gives a reasonably accurate portrayal of events. Of course there are variations from the true record, especially in respect of some of the individuals portrayed, but that is Hollywood and film making. There are many errors and omissions. For example, there was no mention of Tom Horn and Henry Lawton, two notable characters. But I accept that it would be impossible to include everybody who was involved. The details of Geronimo's final surrender are in reality somewhat obscure. For example, was Gatewood actually present? It is known that Lawton certainly was. Plus it is known that Davis was almost certainly not involved, having already left the army by then. Also Al Sieber died many years later in a road construction accident, not in a bar-room shoot out with some Texan vigilantes. But these are spoilers of a production which was by and large quite entertaining and captures the ethos of the period. The film was well acted and directed. The sound and video were superb.
