Underrated at the time of its release, this majestically paced western is one of the finest achievements of the genre and stands as a career-best for many of its participants.

To watch Rio Bravo is to see a master craftsman at work. The film is seamless. There is not a shot that is wrong. It is uncommonly absorbing, and the 141-minute running time flows past like running water.

Texecution is superb in every department, making this one of the classics of the genre

The movie is simultaneously an apogee of the classic Western style, with its principled violence in defense of just law, and an eccentrically hyperbolic work of modernism, which yokes both bumptious erotic comedy and soul-searing rawness to the mission.

... one Hawks' greatest films, perhaps his masterpiece, and one of the finest westerns of all time.

Although Rio Bravo rather ambles along, it still has enough good points to make it a genial viewing experience.
