Beginning in the 1840s, the Cheyenne and Comanche tribes were allies. The Comanche would not have tried to kill Cheyennes escorted by the Army, but perhaps tried to release them. It’s a moot point, however as by 1892 both tribes had finished with warfare, both inter-tribal and against the whites. See more »

The Western Revenant

7 January 2018 | by nikhilrampalSee all my reviews

Now whether you enjoy ‘award bait’ films like no country for old men or The revenant will impact what you make of this movie. But 2 things are objective facts. The acting is phenomenal and the use of sound and cinematography are exceptional.

Despite the slow 2nd and 3rd act, the film is likely to win most viewers over with the final showdown and closing scenes which lead the viewer too look at the film from a more symbolic perspective.

This is not an action film, nor is it a revenge film. It is a film about the pointlessness of racial tension, grieving and PTSD. But boy is it well done.
