Audience Reviews for Once upon a Texas Train


Pleasant TV fare with a great cast of character actors. In one of his last films Richard Widmark is a crusty pleasure.

Super Reviewer

A made-for-TV movie, with all the production values that entails. Two groups (one outlaws, one lawmen) who have been out of commission for about 20 years, get back together for one last skirmish. Tries too hard to be funny and cutesy, not hard enough on the action and gun play. The main fight scene is unbelievably lame. For a western to have no deaths or serious injuries is just too far from reality.
