Critic Reviews for The Gunfighter
It's expertly assembled classic western fodder, and the template for every elegiac "retired killer" movie to come - from Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven to Hugh Jackman in Logan.
A seminal Western superbly directed with restraint by Henry King.
Gregory Peck is in top form as Johnny Ringo in Henry Koster's brooding psychological Western about a doomed gunslinger who wants to lay the guns down.
Audience Reviews for The Gunfighter
Good western. Gregory Peck plays notorious gunfighter Jimmy Ringo, who gets challenged by every wannabe at every turn. The Gunfighter has a similar story to High Noon, but without any gunfights and a tense finale, it's a lot less memorable. Overall well worth your consideration if your a fan of Peck or this genre.
Terrific western drama of the deadiest shot in the Old West who returns to his old hometown and resumes his family together.
