Audience Reviews for The Far Country

    A great go of some above average character acting, a surprisingly great crusty anti-hero portrayal from James Stewart, and a sizzling plot which unfolds at a nice place- and that's all The Far Country is. I'm surprised this film has received so much praise; there are better westerns that have garnered far less praise than The Far Country, in my opinion, like the often overlooked Bend of the River.

    Jimmy Stewart and the rest of the cast are absolutely fantastic in this "northern" rather than a "western". It is a great Sunday afternoon popcorn movie full of larger than life characters and Hollywood legends at their finest.

    Almost a mirror film to Winchester '73, with the same writer, director, star, and style, this one involves the same old same old about the smoothy crook dishonestly making a land grab off of the honest hardworking pioneer types. Stewart decides to even the deal out in this predictable, but fun, fable.

    always enjoy james stewart & mostly "the far country" is kept alive by his prescence. slow & predictable is how it starts off but by mid-way through it partially flourishes & becomes a bit more intense
