Audience Reviews for The Ox-Bow Incident

  • Jun 03, 2021
    A searing and eternally relevant indictment of mob violence. The short running time ensures that not a single moment is wasted.

    Henry Fonda was yet to be turned into a bad guy twenty some odd years later. Here is is once again our hero in a thrilling tale of crowd mentality and how they can execute the worst of crimes.

    This 1943 Western classic still holds up well with its timeless tale of mob-think. The film's star, Henry Fonda, loved to tell stories about justice. This movie was a pet project of his as the studio didn't want to make such a grim story. He got the movie done and audiences that see it now, about 70 years later, should appreciate the message, even if they find the melodrama too thick.

    Wellman's masterpiece not only restored the genre from criticisms and clichés, but trascended the genre itself. Talk about a memorable moralistic reflection on greed and man-driven vengeance! Perfectly crafted film in its deliciously dark, old-school, studio-location-filmed fashion! Is it me, or did Clint Eastwood get physiognomic inspiration from Fonda? 99/100
