OK, let me give some props regarding this film. The main character actor and the cow did a great job. The main character's sidekick must have been a time traveler? He was far to cocky and modern for a Asian back then. Bruce Lee does the middle 1800's. Same for the first nation actors. Indians, Blacks, and Asians were mostly second class and often abused.
Makes me wonder if the producers who appeared to be Asian companies for the most part required this?
If you enjoyed it that is all that matters. I thought it was just a OK film based on a interesting story.
a labor-type guy, i.e. a stereotypical railway worker. In other words, he was an individual. "Cocky and modern:" I doubt all Chinese fit the stereotype of Hollywood: acquiescent, quiet, docile--- cow-like? He was a man, just like any other.
I don't buy it.
Western, and to me the depiction of the West was terrifically accurate--- "Silverado" or "McCabe and Mrs. Miller" were surpassed, in that regard--- and that's saying something.
Remind me what film did Wayne kill all those Indians?
by Wayne; his hatred takes him to a place where he would kill his own niece. Yeah, he's the hero. It's John Wayne, after all. "Stagecoach:" "Like most Westerns of the era, its depiction of Native Americans as simplistic savages has been criticized." wikipedia
I'm not going to search through all Wayne's westerns and do a body count. I think we can agree many died from his rifle and he survived against great odds in every film.
