      Jose Maria Santos Cine-Mundial A moving reflection on the bloody conflict between the North and the South United States. [Full review in Spanish] Apr 9, 2021 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy The wheels were starting to come off the Curtiz and Flynn collaboration by this point, but there's just enough going on here and there to make it a worthwhile curio, at the very least. Rated: 6/10 Jul 10, 2016 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A film Bogart would like to forget, as he's saddled with a bad Mexican accent portraying a bandit.

      Steve D I am embarrassed for Hopkins. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/24 Full Review Audience Member Good movie here recommend it. James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, September 11, 2023 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review James Virginia City is a very good film. I would say that Dodge City (1939) is better. However, the chemistry between Errol Flynn, Alan Hale and Guinn Williams is great, I think that Hale and Williams bring a lot of comic relief. I think that the cast of this film is very good. I like the ending where Flynn was willing to lose his life then to tell them where the gold was. To me that's a genuine hero. There are some parts where it's kinda slow, but I really like it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review deke p 1940! CLASIC! Civil War Epic. Starring ERROL FLYNN!, RANDOLPH SCOTT! Tho it downplayed the Slavery motivation of Rebel partisans, the take-away theme, coming near the beginning of USA IN WW2, was reunifying the country, not demonizing Southerners. Ranges from Virginia City,Nevada to Richmond Virginia! From Jefferson Davis to Lincoln BTW, it premiered, with the stars, in VIRGINIA CITY, NEV., in 1940 Saw on the TV screen, Jan 2022. Also Alan Hale SENIOR., & WARD BOND (minor part) Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review john m Thank God John Ford eventually took these kind of movies to a more interesting place. Don't get me wrong, like a lot of Curtiz's films, this is gorgeously shot with a great admiration for the genre, but never wants to address any of the inevitable themes that come with that territory, like John Ford and Clint Eastwood would do. Humphrey Bogart is a Mexican in this. So yeah. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Tom M Good western with a great cast. Flynn is dashing as always. Rare to see Hopkins in a western riding a horse and dancing in a saloon in a chorus line. And Bogart's moustache and Mexican accent are priceless. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/13/20 Full Review Read all reviews
