      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The Jimmy Stewart hero usually isn't very happy with his job. He doesn't go around sticking his neck out. He's no John Wayne type. But finally he gets pushed beyond the breaking point and Wayne hath no fury like a Stewart scorned. Rated: 3/4 Jul 29, 2006 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com A mediocre Western, elevated by the star power of Henry Fonda (as the villain) and Jimmy Stewart Rated: C+ May 4, 2011 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It's a B-western passed off as an A-western. Rated: C Apr 12, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D With these stars it is hard not to have fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/24 Full Review Audience Member Well worth the watch was a great cast. I recommend that James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, July 14, 2023 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/15/23 Full Review CodyZamboni For a 1968 movie, this one has a low key, old school feel and look. It pushes all the right buttons, anchored by good performances by veterans James Stewart and Henry Fonda. Both characters contrasted as they re-examine their lives, whether Fonda can go back to his old flame, and can Stewart find the guts to stand up for true frontier justice? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/31/23 Full Review deke p All star cast. Heavy duty serious plot. Small westerrn village scared by bad guys. 3 stars, but RT is only letting me give it 5 stars so far, computer glitch. Never heard of before saw on late nite GRIT NETWORK, Ch 30.3 SoCal Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review delysid d along with welcome to hard times, this is an old school western with henry fonda that made me pine for the old days Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/17/20 Full Review Audience Member An odd film that leaves the viewer more sympathetic to the putative villain Henry Fonda than to the hero Jimmy Stewart.
