      Michael W. Phillips, Jr. Goatdog's Movies Not a worthless film, although it's impossible to take seriously. Rated: 2/5 Dec 30, 2011 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Overlong, dull and labored follow-up to Harold Robbins' The Carpetbaggers. Rated: C+ Mar 24, 2010 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Gritty revenge western with McQueen in top form. Rated: 5/5 Mar 24, 2006 Full Review Chuck O'Leary Fantastica Daily Rated: 3/5 Oct 21, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Jun 5, 2005 Full Review Wesley Lovell Apollo Guide The best thing that can be said about Nevada Smith is that it goes in, does what it needs to do, and gets out before it's too late.

      Axel r I thought it was really good Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/19/22 Full Review delysid d havent seen the carpetbaggers but i loved this one Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/17/20 Full Review Audience Member Solid, interesting, and unusual Western. The biggest problem is the casting. McQueen hands in an excellent performance, but he is supposed to be much younger than he is, and it doesn't quite work. Acting, directing, soundtrack, etc., are all top flight. If you like Westerns you'll probably enjoy this. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Good, but nothing great. Uses Joe Campbell's Hero's Journey for its simple plot. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm a huge McQueen fan, but have always found this movie to be flat and slow moving despite a good cast. McQueen is supposed to be a young man but clearly is not. Half Indian, but doesn't seem to have a drop of Native American blood. The best thing about the movie? The fantastic theme music by Alfred Newman. World class. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review andy f If you can get over the fact that 35 year old McQueen is supposed to be a young man (circa 21 I guess) who is also half Indian (McQueen is fair skinned and blond/fair haired), this isn't a bad Western adventure at all. The cast are fantastic and the plot although predictable is engaging. I guess this is McQueen's Cool Hand Luke moment. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
