    Standard JW fayre. Slow to start but with some good action moments and very good horse stunts. Average but not bad.

    This movie falls flat, is very boring and has a weak, lame, uninteresting plot (what was it?). Wayne made better "B" Westerns in his youth!

    63/100. John Wayne's other movie from 1969. Often incorrectly labeled as one of Duke's weakest Westerns, I found this to be a clever and fun albeit unspectacular western. I liked how the film bordered on the friendly hostility edge between Wayne's Union troops and Hudson's Confederates. The conflict was always in flux, never turning too animistic or friendly which all comes together in the entertaining fourth of July brawl scene which was undoubtedly the film's best moment. First Rock Hudson film I ever saw, I was extremely impressed by his acting ability. Seeing one of the most famous openly homosexual actors work alongside the conservative Duke is entertaining for nostalgia's sake. The ending was too anti-climatic for me and the film was uneven at times, but it was a good watch with some good historical background.

    An enjoyable Western with a unique premise. If you're seeing it for The Duke, you won't be disappointed, and prepare to be surprised by Rock Hudson.

    Enjoyed the theme of post-war reconciliation but thought it drew out a fairly thin plot.

    It's a tad over-plotted but this is a solid late Western with John Wayne. It's surprisingly violent at times. Rock Hudson is quite good in it as well.
