      Steve D Nothing special despite the cast. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review mark g Authentic, gritty, and mean. Solid film that seems way ahead of it's time. Entertaining and educational stuff. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review Lomer A Well done movie with Burt Lancaster at his best depicting the unfortunate reality of war against the First Nations and the consequences thereof. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I didn't like this movie at all. I thought parts of it were over acted. The writing was poorly done. The dialogue was overdone and didn't seem natural. The Native Americans were made out to be evil, the soldiers were the good guys who even when they did behave badly, it was written off as just retaliation for all the evil the Native Americans had done. It was written as if they had a right to behave badly. They were still the good guys. I was very disappointed. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review william k Relentlessly tough and violent Western shows no sympathy for any side of the conflict, which may seem dubious, but rather emanates a quite nihilistic viewpoint. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent movie. One of my all time favorites. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Quentin Tarantino The New Beverly Ulzana's Raid is hands down Aldrich's best film of the seventies, as well as being one of the greatest westerns of the seventies. Jun 22, 2020 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The film is particularly pointed in its measured look at how the myopia of people hailing from different cultures can only lead to fear and loathing, death and destruction. Rated: 3/4 Jan 25, 2020 Full Review Dick Lochte Los Angeles Free Press It is an exciting, suspenseful film made with thorough professionalism. Jan 3, 2020 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com One of Aldrich's finest films, this underestimated Western presents a bleak yet intelligent portrait of the racial warfare of the white men vs. Native Americans and also serves as effective and damning allegory of the American involvement in Vietnam. Rated: A- Apr 12, 2008 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A superior western though somewhat ponderous and its action sequences are formulaic. Rated: B Oct 31, 2006 Full Review Chuck O'Leary Fantastica Daily Rated: 3/5 Sep 21, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
