Before superhero movies, filmmakers who wanted to employ action-hero tropes in the service of "noble" messages turned to the Western.The movie follows a bigoted cavalry officer (Christian Bale) who reluctantly obeys orders to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to his tribal grasslands in Montana in 1892 .Some critics point out that the film's white actors get all the best lines and complex characterization. In a story about fractious white-native relations in the American West, it is English actors Bale and Pike who're attracting the early Oscar buzz.
