Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
An American legend comes to breathtaking life in this explosive epic Western starring Jason Patric, Robert Duvall, Gene Hackman and Wes Studi as Geronimo. Studi (The Last Of The Mohicans) gives a stunning performance as the fearless warrior who was the last Indian leader to surrender to the white man. Betrayed by the Army's legendary Indian fighter, General George Crook (Hackman), Geronimo leads a small band of warriors in escape. Pursued by a principled officer (Patric), a grizzled Army scout (Duvall), and a gung-ho West Point graduate (Matt Damon, Good Will Hunting), Geronimo evades capture through brilliant military strategy and cut-throat courage. His true story is both an action adventure and a spiritual journey through the heart of a warrior.

Haunting Historical Movie
By nature, I'm not necessarily a fan of of the western genra movie. However, this masterpiece has become one of the staples in my movie collection. It is a very sobering view of the TRUE way in which the Native American Tribes were systematically subjugated through government western expansion. It is also an amazing illustrative study at the tenacity of this great people and their ability to survive off (basically) dirt. Wes Studi as Geronuimo is wholly beleivable as Geronimo, proud and stoic. The vertern actors (Gene Hackman and Robert Duvall) are masterfully played. And, what many movies are not, this is historically accurate. Definitly 2 thumbs up!
