My Favorite "Classic" American Western

My favorite classic American western by one of the great classic Hollywood directors - and also a great buddy movie. The constant bickering between the main characters makes this one so much fun, but it also has a special kind of atmosphere that classic westerns of that era usually lack; the central piece of music (the hauntingly beautiful Mexican ballad 'El Deguello' which plays an important role in the film) probably adds a lot to that. 10 stars out of 10.

A sparkling Western and one of Wayne's greatest.

"Rio Bravo" is a Western that's typical of John Wayne. He plays a squeaky-clean, upstanding law enforcer, someone who is quite easy-going until provoked and always believes in doing the right thing. That was the image John Wayne stuck with for most of his career and it works in "Rio Bravo." There is plenty of fun in this film, thanks to some good dialogue, being quite lighthearted in places, the story being pretty good and also for featuring some great action near the end. Dean Martin gives a better than average performance as the former sheriff who deals with his own demons via the bottle. He eventually finds his courage and regains some of his former glory. Old hands like Walter Brennan and Ward Bond give their usual sterling support, they were veterans of the Western genre. The running time is a bit long at 130 minutes but I personally don't find that a problem. In a town not far from the Mexican border, an outlaw is being held in the town jail. For John Wayne, that means the entire gang of which the outlaw is a member, shall be riding into town with the intention of springing their comrade. Wayne only has a drunken former sheriff, a deputy with a crippled leg and a young and inexperienced gunfighter for support. The direction from Howard Hawks keeps the film ticking along at a good pace. Wayne's movies with Hawks are equally as good as the ones he made with John Ford.

Rio Bravo ~ NOT an '8'!

This western was SO disappointing! John Wayne was rather tame in this one, and seemed bored by it all; Brennan was OK; Dean Martin was NOT good; Ricky Nelson was forgettable. Dickinson was the best of the lot, and that ain't saying much. It just seemed it was filmed on a poor set ~ lifeless all the way around. I think it may have been a 6 or so in its day, but this oater doesn't hold up to some of the good western that came out in the late 50's/early 60's. The '4' I give it now is GENEROUS!
