      Steve D I didn't find it convincing. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/24 Full Review david j A very good movie, well done and an unusual plot but truly excellent. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a western but an entertaining if improbable drama set in an isolated area in the west. Jean Simmons is full of guarded, wounded vunerability, a very fine actress. She and Rory Calhoun make a surprisingly simpatico pairing. Stephen McNally's character is rather one note, a more distinctive actor could have perhaps fleshed it out but it doesn't hurt the film. Makes some observations about a man's true nature even if he has committed a criminal act. Not a classic but a solid film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member great story n cast in this western/adventure. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Maybe if A Bullet Is Waiting was more of a serious movie then it would've been something I could get into.With all the corny music & other things, It just felt too lighthearted to be good after what the description was about.It should've been a more dark or serious movie Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
