- Last of the Dogmen review by RP
I guess this could be described as a modern cowboys-and-Indians film. Outdoors type with loyal dog discovers lost native American tribe, saves them from baddie sheriff while girlfriend leads them to safety. Sounds very trite, but it's actually surprisingly enjoyable.
It does have its politically correct moments of course – good white man good, only bad white men bad, Indians good, white woman (who coincidentally just happens to speak Cheyenne) good with children and animals. The story is pretty slight and I guess the real star is the scenery which is truly spectacular. It's certainly worth 3/5 stars, perhaps more. In fact I'll give it 4/5. Recommended.
