Cliched characters and plot. There are better Mitchum movies. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member good western and later career work for mitchum Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review dave j Tuesday, April 29, 2014 (1959) The Wonderful Country WESTERN Adapted from the novel starring Robert Mitchum who was also credited as executive producer as well. He plays Martin Brady delivering a truck wagon full of guns, until he cross paths with a couple of Mexican outlaws. Upon crossing through a town nearby, he ends up breaking his leg as a result of his horse throwing him off, frightened from being hit by a tumbleweed. While Brady is recuperating, he later finds out that the truck wagon full of guns ends up getting stolen without finding out the culprit who had done it. And begins to be accustomed to fall in love with the major cavalry's wife, Helen(Julie London). In this movie, somebody always want Brady for something since he has connections with some high regarded Mexicans. Viewers are oblivious how Brady became a citizen to Mexico in the first place and it is soon revealed that he's really a person of interest regarding a murder of a person who was said to have killed Brady's dad. Despite it's high production values, it still feels very limited on the amount of action it has, replacing it with implications, which can be very boring. Also, the ending felt rushed, but that can be the result of running going over it's budget. 2 out of 4 stars Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Slightly subdued western that never gets going as it gets bogged down with a light smattering of 19th century US-Mexican politics. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
