Joe Kidd Reviews

  • May 17, 2020

    Joe Kidd is a brilliant western/action movie, the movies got a good plot and all the characters do pretty well for what they're given especially the man himself Clint Eastwood. Also, this movie has got some very clever fight scenes which work quite well and even makes them very enjoyable. Overall, Joe Kidd is an amazing westen/action movie and it's a very clever one, it's honestly worth the watch.

    I can not sleep through too many of Eastwood's films, but this is one of them. It has him in this 70's anti bad system Western, which has little story, and event less direction. This film has no tension, or acting; everyone took the money and ran with this film, John Saxon has to be one of the most forgettable b actors every. One can remember the face, but never the name. John does it again with this film. If Joe Kidd got killed early in this film it would have saved me the time of watching it. Pretty standard western fare features the usual combination of land disputes, posses, limited dialogue and lots of shooting, with little original in it to commend it to the viewer. Clint's character is ridiculous at the beginning and the jail scene does not really do anything to set up the rest of the movie. He's a drunk that hit the sheriff but he turns down $500 to hunt down Chama? So he's a drunk with honor?(Boring western from early 70s).

    This is a good, solid Client Eastwood western with plenty of strong points, but despite the many good people involved it doesn't rise to the top. In terms of look and tone it's halfway between a heavily stylized spaghetti western and a classic Hollywood one.

    By no means the best Clint Eastwood Western this is still an entertaining and well acted film albeit one without much depth and some predictability. The action however is great, I like the score, the landscapes look fantastic and Eastwood plays the typical cowboy badass brilliantly as per usual.

    Joe Kidd, the premise of the script is great but the narrative is pretty weak. The only thing respectable is the photographic work of Bruce Surtees.

    Dirigida por John Sturges, "Joe Kidd" es una muy buena película de vaqueros en la que un rufián llamado Joe Kidd (Clint Eastwood) ayuda a un terrateniente (Robert Duvall) a buscar y cazar a un mexicano defensor de las tierras de sus paisanos (Joe Saxon). Escrita por Elmore Leonard, este Western lo tiene todo: diálogos cortos y punzantes, múltiples tiroteos y hasta un tren estrellándose contra un casino. Los amantes del género de vaqueros no quedarán defraudados.
