Movie Reviews

America Was Theirs First
J. Miller | Berkeley, CA USA | 03/04/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This series isn't the most entertaining that you'll watch, but it makes up for this in the important story that it tells. I grew up with limited knowledge of the indiginous inhabitants of our Great Land. I knew of a few tales and legends, but didn't realize that a few times, the tribes came close to ousting the invaders from their lands. The problem for them was that their cultures, though some were quite warlike, weren't as greedy and expansionist as the European's culture.

This series attempts to tell some of the "military" history of many of the Native Tribes. I only wish it had been done more cinematically, rather than with still photographs. If you can tolerate the pace and style, it's well worth the time spent."
Very informative
J. Keeton | Douglasville, GA USA | 01/03/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This three DVD series is very well done but it is more like an instructional film you used to see in school. Here and there, they attempt the Ken Burns type style with a guest narrator but that is too scattered. It is very systematic in filling in the background of the many Indian tribes and I learned a lot."
U.S. robbery, genocide, and terrorism, TRUTH be told!
Edward Velazquez | BRONX, N.Y. | 10/31/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was a great DVD, it was very informative and will enhance any OPEN-MINDED persons knowledge on American History. This is a must see for everyone and should be part of all high school curriculum whether public or private. TRUTH be told!"
