Critic Reviews for Man with the Gun

All Critics (1)

The debut film by an early Orson Welles collaborator, Man with the Gun never transcends its stock western template, and the home-video treatment is correspondingly unremarkable.

Audience Reviews for Man with the Gun

I don't know what I expected but since Robert Mitchum was in it, I expected it to be good.Something about it was off for me & I had a hard time paying attention through the whole movie
