Audience Reviews for Hondo

  • Aug 25, 2012
    A different kind of John Wayne Western, one where the lines between good and evil aren't as simplistic or cartoony. Based on a Louis L'Amour novel and directed by John Farrow (Mia's dad), this is aided by the early 3-D filming process, making for gorgeous viewing, and Geraldine Page's film debut, who brings an earthy charm to the proceedings, and out of the Duke himself.

    Hondo was directed by John Farrow but certainly reminds one of John Ford's films and stars his usual A-list actor John Wayne in a Western film, albeit a little offbeat one. The tone is unique and one that differs and the story is unique and has a lot going for it however. John Wayne gives another solid performance and the film is brisk, running under an hour and a half and is well-paced and has enough action in the latter part of the film to make it entertaining enough. Not the best of Westerns, but one that is unique and solid overall.

    An excellent earlier Wayne western that embraces moral ambiguity, and does so within the context of a confined yet authentic and moving story. Wayne was a fantastic actor, and that is in full display here, where he owns every scene he's in, though that's typical of the Duke. Beautifully shot and well written, check it out.

    less than average western where not alot really happens, all the while with john wayne playing a plain/dull character. i'd advise on giving it a miss!
