Dee and Mace Bishop are brothers that have recently been reunited after Mace pretends to be a hangman during his brother's trial. A shootout ensues and they escape. Along their way they encounter a woman out for revenge and money...sounds exactly like their type. As they try to find a way to go right and avoid the law, their natural ways get in the way.
"It appears to me I misjudged you."
Andrew McLaglen, director of Have Gun Will Travel, Gunsmoke, McLintock, The Wild Geese, Sahara (1983), The Sea Wolves, and Shenandoah, delivers Bandolero! The storyline for this picture is pretty good and fun to watch unfold. The characters are fascinating and eccentric and the cast delivers solid performances. The cast includes James Stewart, Dean Martin, Raquel Welch, George Kennedy, and Will Geer.
"He robbed a bank."
I came across this on Netflix and had to add it to the wish list since it starred the legend James Stewart. This was far from his best work and this was a pretty average, straightforward western. There wasn't too much original here. I wouldn't go too out of my way to see this unless you're a fan of the genre.
"I was a whore at thirteen and my family never went hungry."
And well, I found this movie to be somewhat disappointing. It starts off well, but gets a bit boring after a while. Stewart has done several better parts than this, and Martin seems to lack some of his natural charisma in this one. The story also seems to lose focus, and everything gets a bit repetive as time goes by. Raquel Welch is pretty, and looks like she just got out of the beauty parlour though she has been on the run in desert country for weeks. So, to sum it up: It is a rather mediocre western, with lovely photography, a star-filled casting and a rather disengaging story. No classic, in my opinion, but watchable on a rainy day, if you have nothing better to do.
