This film is fantastic. It tells a great story and it has something for everyone. It is about redemption,honor and pride.It has riveting action sequences and intellegent dialogue. It is a story about clashing cultures that has a parallel to our historical conflict with Native Americans.Tom Cruise gives an Oscar worthy performance in this powerhouse of a film.
