      Jack O Okay, who thinks they've got the marbles? The Return of a Man Called Horse. I guess this is the film that I could ever think of while think about all stories that are look like this. Like Pocahontas and Dances with Wolves. Both stories look alike when a man came to visit the native people. I haven't seen the first movie, A Man Called Horse, is the only reputation that could be good than the sequel. When I first watched it I literally remember nothing about this movie except the Native American initiation ceremony scene where John Morgan and the indian's were hung on pin in their chests. Watching it again I knew some scenes in this. Maybe I feel empty inside it? I don't know. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A man will always belong to more than one tribe in his existence Directed by the late Irvin Kerschner the late Richard Harris returns as Lord John Morgan, the man who was captured in 1825 and enslaved yet over time he bonded and grew with the Sioux Indian tribe He went through a rite of passage becoming chief abandoning his aristocratic societal ways 3 years later Morgan returns to England but is shocked to learn that the Sioux have been overrun by another warring tribe as well as other English traders that have set up a stronghold He comes back to his 'true family' and wants to set things right liberating the tribe from the clutches of these traders Even shows the natives new tools and weapons from his original home, sadly the tribe rejects him saying there's no place for him Morgan wants to belong again But first he must cleanse himself proving his soul is worthy by purifying his body and suffer in order to be reborn Plus the tribe awaits supernatural punishment against their enemies To give up hope is to die It's not really until the hour and 45 min mark the attack on the stronghold takes place That really does seem like a long time to get things moving Still the journey of Morgan making his way back is fascinating, he remained a member of the Yellow Hand Tribe until his passing in 1854 But his legend remains forever a part of the Sioux's rich history Yes this movie rehashes a lot of the original but Harris is still a delight to watch The landscape photography is beautiful and the score as well The first movie was way more impacting though Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review jack o Okay, who thinks they've got the marbles?

      Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times If this seems a little thin for a two-hour movie, believe me, it is, even with all that portentous music trying to make it seem momentous. Rated: 2/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Harris struts with fanatic devotion in the middle of this mausoleum, erected with the most transparent and perishable of vanities: the vanity of celluloid. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 11, 2023 Full Review Richard Corliss New Times (magazine) The movie code board has rated Return PG -- which means it’s fine to take your kid along, especially if he enjoys torturing hamsters for scientific purposes. Jun 22, 2022 Full Review Jacoba Atlas Los Angeles Free Press It's restrained, clever and unique enough, quite heroic without being pedantic. Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Jesús Fernández Santos El Pais (Spain) Because the story is short, the action that's missing is replaced with initiation ceremonies, ritual dances, folklore, and pseudo spiritual digressions that diminish the already minimal interest in the adventure.
