Bumbling Sinbad sets out to avenge the murder of his parents yearsearlier by villainous railroad boss James Coburn. Failing miserably thefirst time around, he learns to fight, shoot, and survive from mountainman Burt Reynolds and notorious bandit Ernie Hudson, before taking onCoburn a second time.
Winning performances by the endlessly glib Sinbad and scene-stealersReynolds and A. Martinez, along with some genuinely funny moments andsome good action, make for a truly entertaining movie that surprisinglyhas a lot to say about friendship and loyalty.
The great all-star cast also includes Gregory Hines and Hal Williams.There's great chemistry at work here. Also, look fast for old-timeblack cowboy star Herb Jeffries in a non-speaking background role.
I really wish HBO Films were still making good movies like this!

Decent but dull and recycled film about The Cherokee Kid (Sinbad) and hismany idiotic adventures. I don't remember much of this movie, but there isone thing I do remember: never, ever give SinBAD his own movie everagain.

" Cherokee Kid " is, with certainty, a good entertainment. It is a light,funny film and ideal for the children, Sinbad interprets Cherokee Kid withclaw and efficiency, it is really impossible to leave off sympathizing withhis character and with the simple and beautiful plot, that teaches importantvalues for all of us, as friendship, love, accuses and redemption, all thisdone for a public of all the ages in an accessible way! but, with certainty,the best performance of this film is due to Burt Reynolds. He had not stillmade the film that threw him again to the stardom, Boogie Nights, but evenso, he offers a pretty interpretation, worthy of applauses. Reynoldsinterprets Otter Bob, a simple and humble man, who knows the wild life, andwho becomes Cherokee Kid's best friend. In certain scenes, Burt Reynoldsshows us all his competence and love for the art of the interpretation, andit is literally impossible to leave off being moved in these parts, mainlyfor not being just another actor who is saying the sentences, but yes a dearand well-known movies' legend, a true part of the history ofHollywood!his character is a wild man, but with a good heart, of gold, thatdoesn't think twice in jumping in front of a bullet to save his only andbest friend...It is also incredible how it was needed a young director with intelligence,sensibility and vision, called Paul Thomas Anderson, to show to the worldthat the man who one day had been the largest star of the world was stillalive and that he still knew how to act. Congratulations, Burt Reynolds. Onceagain you showed us what it takes to become a real star...
