The filmmaking may be a little ramshackle, but it's sensitive, and the performances are soulful.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
...proves that Elvis didn't just get lucky with his first performance; the boy could actually act.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Famed action director Don Siegel saw an element of raw danger in Elvis and gave him his very best role in this excellent quasi-Western.
Less an "Elvis film" than a western starring young Presley in a surprisingly well cast role, this lean frontier drama... offers one of his most impressive performances.
Elvis' best performance, in a solid Don Siegel Western
| Original Score: 4/5
An emotionally charged liberal themed Western that keeps things rocking.
| Original Score: B+
Among the best Presley features; directed by Don Siegel.
Although the sight of a shirtless Elvis wrestling a native warrior is fascinating enough, there are few surprises in the sequence of events.
| Original Score: 60/100
Pretty good Elvis vehicle; the young man could act.
| Original Score: 3/5
