News & Interviews for The Comancheros
Critic Reviews for The Comancheros
Charming and agreeable, it moves along at a good clip. Shot in widescreen saturated CinemaScope, ... it's entertaining in a predictable way.
Because he was largely a journeyman filmmaker who took whatever jobs the studio assigned him, most historians and critics regard Michael Curtiz merely as a capable gun-for-hire who was lucky enough to find himself attached to good projects.
A good old school western with solid acting, a great musical score, wonderful cinematography and beautiful desert scenery.
Audience Reviews for The Comancheros
This action-western picture of John Wayne is absolutely which has not one dull moment. It has lots of nice moments between the Texas Ranger (played by Wayne) and gambler (Stuart Whitman) as the unlikely partners to take on the villians of Comancheros.
actually a fun shoot-'em-up with all of the typical obligatory scenes all in the name of simply a good time. when movies were movies, yah?
More solid western action from John Wayne who strikes up a fun buddy partnership with fugitive Stuart Whitman. The heroine's willingness to sell out her father and friends so easily is a little lacking in credibility, but pretty good on the whole. There's also a memorable cameo from Lee Marvin.
