Audience Reviews for The Law and Jake Wade

Solid western benefits from beautiful location photography and a strong cast. Taylor is looser than usual and his weathered appearance suits his character's back story. The best performance unsurprisingly comes from the great Richard Widmark, true his part is nothing he hasn't done before but he was always so adept and enjoyable in his villianry it's a pleasure to watch.
