Mountaineers battle tomahawk-wielding Injuns in a 1980 Western cookie-cut from a doughy old mold. Charlton Heston gives his standard stolid performance, backed up by a jovial Brian Keith. The Indian chief, hilariously named Heavy Eagle, has a hankering for Keith's scalp. He would have been better off getting director Richard Lang's.
