      Zach J Great movie and story, highly recommend it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review ashley h This made-for-TV film about Crazy Horse has good acting and beautiful visual images. However, key details have been left out of the story in its hurry to wrap up a complex issue and time in history. Additionally, though the story fortunately does stay focused on Crazy Horse and his people, the script makes a half-hearted attempt to tell the tale with a native american voice. For example, very little of the music sounds Native American. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
