    Well made, but a cliched script and direction makes for a film that could have been great. The cinematography was beautiful, it's a shame the rest didn't match.

    Charming and agreeable, it moves along at a good clip. Shot in widescreen saturated CinemaScope, ... it's entertaining in a predictable way.

    ***Due to the recent RT changes that have basically ruined my past reviews, I am mostly only giving a rating rather than a full review.***

    'Yah, Here Come The Rangers, The Best in Texas'... Enduring Western-Just like your first rattler. One look and you'll know--Larger than life, fun, action packed, with memorable characters... Falling Horses and repeater rifles!!

    This is a really engaging western. Nothing too deep here, but it's well-paced, light and enjoyble. Wayne and Whitman work well together. Lee Marvin apperas briefly and totally steals the film with a wild, crazed performance. One doesn't think of Curtiz as a director of westerns, but he handles the genre with the smooth professionalism he brought to all his films. This was his last film. He was dying of cancer while directing it and apparently Wayne tepped in and directed quite a bit of it.

    ---One of Wayne's better westerns, with a good storyline, interesting characters and excellent cast. Cinematography is exceptional, the musical score is rousing, and Wayne's portrayal of a dedicated Texas Ranger, still grieving for the wife he lost years earlier, is at times quite poignant. ---The "buddy" chemistry between Wayne and co-star Whitman is very good, and, as usual, with a James Edward Grant script (partnered with feminine dialogue powerhouse Clair Huffaker), the dialogue always "feels right" for the character. Very entertaining and fast-paced, The Comancheros rates a solid A-.
