    The era is post-Civil War, around 1892. Christian Bale plays (by all accounts a legendary) U.S. Cavalry officer. Wes Studi, is a Cherokee actor (I've seen him in other films), who here plays a Cheyenne war chief named Yellow Hawk. Fort Berringer is an isolated Calvary outpost located in New Mexico. The movie has scenes depicting an Apache Indian party, and scenes depicting a Comanche Indian war party. This information does not give away the story. This was a very good movie. I was attentive to it and not bored the entire movie. This movie does not take a side in terms of rights to land. This movie is not trying to make a political statement. This movie does an excellent job portraying honor. This movie does an excellent job portraying PTSD. Bale's character suffers from it and so does Rory Cochrane's, he plays First Sergeant Metz. Cochrane does an excellent job of struggling with PTSD, depression. This information should not give away the story but might aid in better understanding what is going on in different scenes. Christian Bale gave an excellent performance as a Calvary Officer. To some reviewers, this character might have been too different than what they are use to seeing Bale do. With an objective mind, I think he pulled off the role superbly. His character is able to manage his PTSD. The movie offers beautiful scenery. I enjoyed seeing the depictions of what life was like during those times: at an outpost, town life, railroad trains, horses as a mode of transportation, mountains, beautiful scenery, the costumes, and the reality that living or raising a family in the wilderness was a potentially dangerous choice. I recommend seeing this movie and making your own rating.

    Great script, acting was very good and cinematography was terrific. Had not enjoyed a Western as much since Unforgiven

    Very dry movie. I like all the actors in the movie but it went downhill for entertainment after the first five minutes. It is a movie that does provide insight on how mean people can be to one another but this could have been a 1hr movie to do so. By far the dryest movie of the year so far. Save your money and see something else.

    Not a very good movie. The casting was okay but plodding, dull, and revisionist.

    This is a poorly written movie. And although they had good actors they were not allowed to do their jobs evidently. And the firearms were not even close to looking like they belonged in that era. Very slow and drawn out.
