      Audience Member Well, I have to say to me it had a surprise ending but man I like it yes itโ€™s very good James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas March 16, 2023 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Acting was good kept me watching Over all I thought it was good ๐Ÿ‘ Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review dave j Obviously, inspired by movies starting with "The Gunfighter" and "The Fastest Man Alive" in which a respectful gunfighter seeking out best gunfighter. Abrubt ending. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid if unspectacular western. Glenn Ford plays an aging gunfighter/ex-con who now lives a quiet life as a small town sheriff and as the boyfriend to local bar owner Angie Dickinson. This reformed life is upset when a young gunfighter looking to make a name for himself, Chad Everett, comes to town and wants to know who's the fastest gun in the west. It's a routine and archetypal story that's often been told, both well ("The Gunfighter" or "Unforgiven") and also not so well ("More Dead than Alive" or "Quick and the Dead") and this film falls somewhere in between. The strong cast, which also includes Jack Elam, Royal Dano, and Len "Uncle Leo" Lesser, carries the film a long way and the story is certainly serviceable, but the film plods and takes forever to get to it's ultimate face-off between Ford and Everett, with lots of unconnected or inconsequential plot points in-between.It's not a bad film and I actually did enjoy it, but given the cast and story set-up, this could have been a great film along the lines of "Ride the High Country," so in many ways it a pretty disappointing film. On a lesser note, the music for this film drove me crazy, seeming like cheesy music from 1960s television, though when I looked up the composer, most of his filmography was TV shows of the 60s and 70s. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Strictly by the numbers western without one bit of innovation. The actors seem bored. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member meh. i have watched a lot of westerns lately and most of the best seem to feature audie murphy and randolph scott. i don't know if this one is considered an adult western but it is dull.
