Critic Reviews for Firecreek
A mediocre Western, elevated by the star power of Henry Fonda (as the villain) and Jimmy Stewart
Audience Reviews for Firecreek
Henry Fonda broke from tradition and portrayed two villains in 1968. One was Once Upon A Time In The West; This was the other.
Anything with James Stewart/Henry Fonda should be a classic, but 'Firecreek' is one of the weakest westerns I've ever seen. It plays more like an episode of 'Little House on the Prairie,' than a big time western. If you watch closely, you'll even see where Michael Landon got a few of his ideas.
Gritty western with a melancholy tone. Stewart and Fonda do good work as adversaries although Henry is a conflicted villain. He has some good scenes with Inger Stevens that humanize his character. Inger imparts a real sense of muted sorrow to her part but also a core of strength, a very subtle actress.
