Audience Reviews for Big Jake

  • Aug 12, 2012
    Altho ostensibly about the Duke chasing greedy, unscrupulous kidnappers (with Richard Boone the leering leader of despicable baddies), this tale mainly involves an errant father's careful rebonding with his distrustful offspring ... and the Duke's folksy charm does just that, after a few butt-kicking fistfights and a coupla shootouts, naturally.
