as trite as could be, even when it was made
I recall that even when the movie was made, it was a hodge podge of
every contrived and stereotypical movie scene acceptable, taking
absolutely no chances. It is supposed to be an action think piece, but
fails on all counts. The action is slow, which isn't as bad as the plot
being predictable to every detail. It would be nice if the movie just
took one bit of risk, but this is about as risk free as you can get. A
movie that takes no chances. It just puts together every mundane
acceptable situation in films. One gets the feeling that the team
making this film just threw in some dialog and said "Lets make a
movie". Total lack of originality and total lack of inspiration. Total

A sure 10 - Opens eyes to a tragic reality in the USA
This is not a film that attempts to portray events entirely realistically;
instead it creates caricatures out of characters in order to present a very
real and indeed true-to-life issue. There is some fantasy depicted in the
film, which might throw some viewers off guard, though again this is because
realism is not the issue the film addresses. Action scenes are shot in a
dramatic manner very much like that in the typical Hollywood action film,
but the overall excitement of the film is created with the purpose of
catching the attention of a mass audience, and then leaving this large
audience with something to think about. In this the film succeeds
splendidly. The action, however, is not the central point of the picture,
it is a philosophical movie rather than an action flick. Films like Little
Big Man, and Dances With Wolves were both excellent, but they concerned
events that occurred in the past, hence were not especially relevant to what
is going on right now. Many people who watch films like Little Big Man do
not fully realize that the situation for Indians has not changed all that
much, some even choose to believe that there are no problems at all any
longer. Those films, especially Dances With Wolves, were also highly
sentimental, and therefore almost impossible to watch due to the fake sense
of creating emotional appeal. Thunderheart does not bother with
sentimentality; one can watch the entire film absorbing even the scenes of
death and sadness without having to shed a tear. The drama is not
undermined, but it isn't put into the focus of the film as if attempting to
make the entire audience cry, instead it focuses on the important issues.
Thunderheart is set in the 20th century, and it comments on the state of
life for Native American Indians today. The United States is one of the
richest countries in the world, yet life on Indian reservations is far more
like that in third world countries. It is a life almost without any hope,
and the only way out seems to be an abandonment of their traditions and
their own language. A people should never be forced to forsake their own
religion and beliefs in order to live decently, just imagine if someone
suggested that all Christians abandon their belief in Christ or otherwise be
subjected to living in third world conditions. I have been involved with
the Indian community since I was twelve years old, and I have spent months
at a time living on reservations. I have seen the inhumane conditions that
the people at Viejas Reservation lived under ten years ago, and I witnessed
the change as the casino was opened. Most reservations, however, are not
allowed to have casinos, and life for them has not improved at all.
Thunderheart is an excellent film because it opens the eyes of people in
regard to an issue that deserves to be experienced by a mass audience; and
the film achieves its objective flawlessly..
