      Derpboi42 There were some weird parts and it was kind of slow, but overall it was an enjoyable movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review r 9 Simply boring. 'Westward Ho, The Wagons!' is a slow watch, despite a relatively low run time of 90 minutes. Fess Parker, who I enjoyed in fellow 1956 release 'The Great Locomotive Chase', and Jeff York, co-star in the latter, fail to entertain. Some of the music is catchy, namely the opening/closing theme, but that's about it. The plot is as problematic as you'd expect. It basically splits itself in two in terms of its portrayal of Native Americans, one is exactly what you would unfortunately predict from a '56 release but the other part is actually, surprisingly, well intentioned. Even taking all the aforementioned out, it feels pretty disjointed and majorly uninteresting throughout. I just found it all underwhelming, sure Disney have done much worse but that doesn't stop it leaving negative thoughts. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Great memories from my youth. Still is a fun family movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
