Critic Reviews for Shalako
Dmytryk constrói um clima crescente de tensão, sendo auxiliado na tarefa por Connery, que convence como veterano do Oeste americano. No entanto, o final anti-climático compromete a produção.
Audience Reviews for Shalako
140915: Definitely think this movie is higher than its current rating of 27%. Decent film, just a bit different and a little bit slow at times. Interesting premise, a foreign hunting safari in the old west confronted by Apaches. Was odd hearing all the accents, especially Connery's classic James Bond tone. A much younger Connery. Bardot looking hot. Some good action.
"Shalako" is an exercise in precisely nothing. It is obvious Dymtryk wanted to say something, but what, is the question for the ages. Sean Connery is a competent actor but not even him (who brought "Highlander 2" into the enjoyably-bad category) can save this mess. Brigitte Bardot's acting skills are also in question.
This is one of Louis L'Amour's best novels and as always the book is so much better than the movie. While the story is fairly engaging, the action scenes are good, Sean Connery is in great form, and Brigitte Bardot is as beautiful as ever, it is filled with traditional stereotypes of "Paleface good and Redskin bad" that I did not appreciate.
