David Bax Battleship Pretension Clay's descent into dubious enforcement of the law starts fun, with a lively montage of him learning to draw and shoot his pistols with speed. But it soon devolves into one miniature Ox-Bow Incident after another. Jan 17, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Really good western here highly recommend it, James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, July 15, 2023 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/17/23 Full Review ashley h El Paso is an excellent film. It is about a lawyer and ex-Confederate captain Clay Fletcher who forms a vigilante group to bring law and order to the town of El Paso. John Payne and Sterling Hayden give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Lewis R. Foster did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the adventure. El Paso is a must see if you like westerns. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
