Synopsis:
Wes Studi gives a stunning performance as the fearless warrior who was the last Indian leader to surrender to the white man. Betrayed by the Army's legendary "Indian fighter", General George Crook (Gene Hackman), Geronimo leads a small band of warriors in their escape. Pursued by a principled officer (Jason Patric), a grizzled Army scout (Robert Duvall), and a gung-ho West Point graduate (Matt Damon), Geronimo evades capture through brilliant military strategy and cutthroat courage. His true story is both an action adventure and a spiritual journey through the heart of a warrior.

A surprisingly good and thought-provoking western. - Geronimo review by CP Customer

Based on a true story, Geronimo revolves around the character of Lieutenant Britton Davis, a young rookie officer who is sent along with another officer and an old army scout to track down the Indian warrior Geronimo and bring him and his people to live on a government approved reservation. After Geronimo and others become restless and leave the reservation to claim back their land Davis is again sent off to bring back the warrior, though what should be a simple task soon develops into bloodshed in which Davis questions the morality of his own governments actions. The acting is great, the story holds your attention throughout and Geronimo's tale is told in a a sympathetic and thought provoking way. If you enjoy this you should also check out the excellent 'Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee' and ‘Broken Trail’.
