"This controversial, savage Western
is based on the US Cavalry's extermination of the Cheyenne
at Sand Creek and the struggle of two survivors to reach safety.
Probably nearer to the truth of how the West was really won
than most Hollywood versions, the final massacre sequence
is still almost unbearably harrowing. "

Soldier Blue turned out to be a pretty
good western flick, but not among the very best. The problem
for me was the female lead. I wasn't too happy with her acting,
in the sense she didn't make me believe she was the '"strong
woman" she was supposed to be. And the opening song really
got on my nerves!! Other then that, I enjoyed it very much.
It has very nice photography, score and the ending was very
brutal and realistic. I really think Soldier Blue succeeded
in getting it's message across.
Highly recommended for all fans of western movies.
