Western stressing suspense, with some vivid characters and conversations.

Classic Film and Television

The drama is shallow and forced, though admittedly somewhat entertaining.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Mantendo um clima de tensão constante, o filme promove o duelo não apenas entre o xerife Morgan e seu amigo Belden, mas também entre seus dois excepcionais intérpretes: Kirk Douglas e Anthony Quinn.

Solid western with good performances across the board but Carolyn Jones is a particular standout.

Great Western. After his wife is raped and murdered a U.S Marshall (Douglas) tracks down the killers,only to find out its was a son of a lifelong friend (Quinn). Director John Sturges (The Magnificent Seven) built up the tension nicely and the acting from both Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn was excellent. There are similarity's to this and 3:10 to Yuma, but this story was more believable, with no cheesy dialogue and an intelligent ending

Arite, I got roped into watching this tonight but while I must admit I am not a big fan of westerns, (A History of Violence is in a class all by itself); I thought this one was darn good. A rock solid classic western with strong actors in two crusty old timers; Kirk Douglas plays a lawman determined to bring justice his wife's killers and avenge her rape and murder. The problem is that one of the killers turns out to be the only son of his best friend, a rich land and cattle baron played by Anthony Quinn. A great no nonsense script with a superb showdown.
