      Josephine O'Neill Daily Telegraph (Australia) There is no reason why anyone should remember this bad programme Western. Mar 26, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Though the visuals in this 3-D film have depth, the story itself remains shallow and clichéd. Rated: C+ May 22, 2007 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid The plot is a little convoluted, but Scott is an engaging hero, even when he's playing a bastard.

      Steve D Not one new idea in the entire film. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review deke p 1953! 3D! in odd hat RANDOLPH SCOTT❤️. Movie not great, but RS! & the Mexican villain, played by the same guy who sd 'WE DON GOT TO SHOW YOU NO STINKIN BADGES' was kind of silly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A routine Randolph Scott western. The highlight is an early outing by Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid enough western, albeit fairly ordinary, however the fine supporting cast make it a worthwhile watch. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Pedestrian western was originally released in 3-D but that is lost on the small screen. What's left is a customarily good performance by Claire Trevor and a decent supporting cast including Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Fairly unremarkable De Toth/ Scott Western. Might be fun in its original 3D though.
