Critic Reviews for Buchanan Rides Alone

All Critics (3)

Dark comedy gem in which the hero cleans up one of the most corrupt towns in Western history.

Aug 10, 2011 | Full Review…

This is a lighter effort than usual, with more of a male bonding angle. It's also the most needlessly complicated of the series.

Nov 6, 2008 | Full Review…

Absurd but witty minor Western.

Audience Reviews for Buchanan Rides Alone

i haven't seen a bad boetticher/scott western. this one has a light hearted tone that put me off at first but found myself enjoying quite a bit. this plot description is a bit off: buchanan rides alone through california, en route to his home in texas, passing through a town run by the crooked agry brothers, which he has all kinds of trouble leaving

Fairly standard quality western. If you're a fan of the genre you'll enjoy this, if you're not, you won't.
