Critic Reviews for Joe Kidd
It's lesser Eastwood (and Leonard and Sturges), but it's impossible to squash the spirit of the work, which carries the film far enough to satisfy basic needs from the genre, making it a lark, but a convincing one.
Audience Reviews for Joe Kidd
Ordinary western has good actors and nice scenery but nothing you have seen many times before. Still if you like Clint and westerns this will work fine for you.More
No, it's not one of the best westerns ever made, but it's really fun. Clint Eastwood gives a great performance and really plays a different western hero than usual. It's also sort've odd to see Robert Duvall as such a scumbag. It's got a really great style that makes up for the uneven plot.More
Bizarrely sloppy by-the-numbers Clint Eastwood western, particularly considering the talent involved. There seems to be little logic involved in any of it; only Clints charisma and the loosely associated bouts of screen violence demand attention; the "plot" is inconsequential.More
