Movie Reviews

A Hollywierd production on Buffalo Soldiers
Art T. Burton | Chicago, IL | 05/28/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is very sad. Seminole Negro Indian Scouts only served in Texas, not New Mexico. There are no officers present but Colonel Grierson, only the sergeant major. Grierson is presented as a wimp when he was in reality a hero of both the Civil War and western frontier. No american soldiers would have been able to sneak up on the Apache. No black soldiers ever had to dismount to pass through a western town, this is purely Hollywood. The song that is sung by the black troopers as they are carrying one of there deceased to the cemetary was written in the 1930s. This is one sad movie."
Ignored chapter of American History...
Gregor von Kallahann | 05/05/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This commendable film addresses a shamefully ignored chapter of U.S. history. Freed slaves were enlisted in the military to patrol Western territories. Many served with distinction, as the narrative here takes pains to point out. Thankfully, the film is not unduly preachy, and it is very well acted. But it remains a bit sketchy and is dramatically a bit on the limp side. Well worth watching, but it could have been better developed and edited."
Great Action and still tells what it was like then!
Andrew Mowatt | 02/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie really showed me how hard it was being a black back then. The movie which is based on real Buffalo Soldiers is filled with Action and Drama."
The Buffalo Soldiers Danny Glover
Andrew Mowatt | SCOTLAND | 01/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a superb film, giving the viewer a great story of a little known period of American history. The battle/skirmish scenes with the Apache were well done and very realistic. I did not let the automobile approaching in the distance in one of the scenes at Fort Craig put me off either.Glad I bought this DVD."
