I really wanted to like this movie - great casting, great acting, great scenery - no, fantastic scenery! Despite all that, it's a forgettable movie that's best rented, not owned. The basic story could have been much more interesting, but instead it's just a 2 hour apology tour, and a not too convincing one at that. After years of fighting the Indians and seeing their friends killed, it's hard to imagine the sudden conversion to friendliness and respect by the soldiers (or the Indians). The script/dialogue seems to have come straight from a college course. While there may be some valid points, it's not believable to think the movie characters would have thought that way in the situations they were in. The final insult was that although God was discussed frequently (in a mostly negative way), and the main character is shown frequently reading, in the end it's Caesar, not the Bible. Again, just not believable that someone in that situation would spend their spare time reading Caesar - just don't show him reading at all.
