A star-crossed Native American couple fleeing their tribal leader’s disapproval must hide from a manhunt in 1909. Directed by Christian Camargo, The Last Manhunt is a stylish and tense Western that is all the more powerful for its gripping true story.

The film tells the story of Chemehuevi desert runner Willie Boy (Martin Sensmeier) and his forbidden love, Carlota (Mainei Kinimaka). When she shoots her father, Willie sets off on a 26-day run that became one of the longest and most notorious chases in Western history.

Starring Jason Momoa

Jason Momoa is an actor with a wide range of roles in films and television. He is best known for playing Khal Drogo, the leader of the Dothraki people, on HBO’s blockbuster Game of Thrones.

He is also the co-writer and star of The Last Manhunt, an upcoming Western that’s inspired by a real story. This film is the latest collaboration between Momoa and Saban Films, who also previously worked with him on Braven.

The movie is based on the true-life Chemehuevi Desert Runner Willie Boy, and follows his life from 1909 when a reputed murder sparks a tragedy reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet. Willie shoots his love interest’s father after a confrontation and goes on the run.

Producers are bringing the Chemehuevi people’s story to life in an authentic manner with their local tribal members. They were also able to bring in a Salt Song Singer, Leivas Silversmith, who led a group of the tribe’s Salt Singers during a recording session done on set.

Directed by Christian Camargo

Christian Camargo is a talented actor who has worked on numerous movies including Dexter and House of Cards. He has also starred on Broadway in Skylight, All My Sons and the Romeo & Juliet revival.

His latest movie is The Last Manhunt, based on a true story. He directs from a script written by Thomas Pa’a Sibbett and Jason Momoa.

The story of Willie Boy, a Chemehuevi Indian, is an iconic American tale, one that has been retold on film several times over the years. In 1969, Robert Redford directed Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here.

The story is a fascinating look at the racial tension that existed between the Chemehuevi and the white bounty hunters. The film also focuses on the tragic romance of Willie Boy and Carlota. It is a heartbreaking story of love, death and desert heat.

Based on a true story

The Last Manhunt is a tale of love, betrayal, and the old west rolled into one. Star-crossed lovers Willie Boy (Martin Sensmeier) and Carlota (Mainei Kinimaka) have one of the most epic romances in the history of man and womankind. Their long distance romance is marred by a series of unfortunate events. The film also boasts a strong cast and some of the best production design you’ll see on the big screen this year.

The aforementioned film was directed by Christian Camargo from a screenplay written by Thomas Pa’a Sibbett. A plethora of actors in the Chemehuevi community were recruited to take part in what is billed as the most accurate depiction of tribal life since before the days of white mans taming. The cast features a host of stars including Jason Momoa, Martin Sensmeier, and Mainei Kinimaka. You can watch The Last Manhunt on select screens beginning November 18 or purchase it on Digital and VOD platforms from the likes of Lionsgate, HBO, Amazon, Netflix, and more.

Rating: R

Jason Momoa is back as a badass outdoorsman in The Last Manhunt, which Saban Films is releasing this Friday. The Aquaman and Dune star is co-writer, executive producer and among the cast.

Based on a true story, The Last Manhunt follows Willie Boy and his love interest Carlota who go on the run after accidentally shooting her father in a confrontation gone wrong. President Taft arrives to the area, and a local sheriff leads two Native American trackers on a mission seeking justice for their fallen tribal leader.

Directed by Christian Camargo (Days and Nights), The Last Manhunt is a visually stunning western that takes advantage of the beautiful desert landscapes that make up much of southeastern California. But the movie is surprisingly uninvolving, relying on an inert script and all-too-leisurely direction to keep things moving.
