Josh G This is a mess a random story telling elements shoved together with random sing kids and adults alike, this is the worst Daniel Boone I've seen. Having nothing good to add. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I've never really been a fan of any movie or story featuring Daniel Boone. The stories all seem too far-fetched for an historical figure, and by the time they made Daniel Boone: Trailblazer, things were ridiculous. This was pretty boring and badly acted for the most part, except for when the war began with the Indians (btw, I'm calling them Indians because they called them Indians in the movie, so don't look at me funny for not being p.c.). That part of the movie started to get pretty funny, especially when Lon Chaney Jr. in red skin make-up was saying "White Man! Run!" I wish there had been more parts that funny because then I could recommend it as a funny bad movie, but mostly it's just boring, including the non-performance from Bruce Bennett who is best known as Tarzan. Not a lot of acting talent is required to play that kind of a role, and it's clear with this one that he didn't have any. It's also bizarre seeing Daniel Boone with blonde hair and without his trademark coonskin hat, which is how he's always been previously portrayed. This is easily another skippable movie in the long list of skippable movies that make you sit there and wonder why they were even made.
