    What this movie seemed to tell me:

    Native Americans are only two things: noble or feral savages. They speak a miracle language, that only the white protagonist can decifer, because he "knows" them. He studied the enemy. Something they never did.

It's a fantasy movie with sci-fi aesthetics. Sure it has superheroes in the sense of Marvel comic book characters, but none of them resembled what that term would imply anymore. And that's not necessarily a bad thing either. I just realized how weird that transition is.
