    It's on my list!

    I am sure there will be too much love story...but still I like movies set in colonial era. Last of Mohikans is a fav of mine.

      Wes Studi being one of my favourite actors - this one might well get a view eventually.

      This pic is done by the same person that did the Guadalcanal movie - Thin Red Line - so it (from what I have read - might have a similar style -if you are familiar with that one).

        Uh Oh -- While there were some decent parts to Thin Red Line I rememeber it being strange!

        Will still probably roll the dice on this one and go see it.

          Ever since Mohicans, Studi has been a fav of mine , as well.

          I think this will be worth plunkin down some jack to see on the big screen, too.

          Now if I can just sell the woman on the "Love Story" angle... henh henh henh.


          And then I suppose there might better be at least a thread of it in the movie or be prepared for the consequences... dOOH!

            I'm going to go see it, even though it does play up the "love" story between Pocahontas and John Smith, which there is no historical evidence to suggest even happened. I'm not a fan of Colin Farrel, but the other actors look solid, especially Wes Studi. The historical accuracy of the material culture portrayed in the film looks pretty good too. They actully use wheelock and matchlock guns! In going to see some smoking match and sparking pyrite! Using the right firearms is almost unheard of in hollywood, I still remember the blatant close up of a continental soldier firing a percussion musket in "Revolution." And I know I'm going to catch a lot of flak for this, but I actually really liked "The Thin Red Line," it was a great artisitic film, much better than a lot of the trash out there that just tries to draw in the biggest crowd without any regard to the visual art of filmmaking.

              Hey! This does look good. Wes Studi and Jonathan Pryce are both great, and so is Dave Thewlis. I may have to go see this one when it comes around.

                Here's a pic of one of the wheelock pistols used in the film. I can't think of any film I've seen with a wheelock in it.
