Audience Reviews for Shoot Out
I think Shoot Out is the type of Western you'll like even if you're not a fan of Westerns.You got Clay Lomax getting out of prison & looking for revenge on the ex partner who shot him in the back after a robbery but gets a kid dumped on him.He drags her along while being tailed by 3 punks hired by Clay Lomax's ex partner who's now a rich rancher.I won't give anymore away but if you enjoy Westerns as much as I do then it's a movie you'll want to check out
henry hathaway flick with an aging gregory peck who's just out of prison set on getting revenge with an old pal who landed him there, only to become stuck taking care of a precocious little girl (a la paper moon) who may or may not be his daughter.
At first an average Western, but with Gregory Peck this is a tolerable film that ends very well. While it starts pretty typical, the scenery later is terrific. Good cinematography. The supporting cast (mostly the young outlaws) are average actors. Two are veteran actors. The soundtrack is average. After a 7-8 year stay in prison, Gregory Peck is looking for a bank robbing partner that got betrayed him. In the process, he is burdened with a nasty tempored 5 year old orphan girl. He feels bad not caring for the girl despite his better sense. 3 young guys follow Peck and cause him trouble. While made in 1971, this film has all the scenery, cinematography and real open West feel as seen today. This film is all about legend actor Gregory Peck. He elevates this film FAR above what it should be. Slow paced, were it not for Peck's performance, personna and the scenery.... let's just say it would be no Shoot Out at all. NOTES: Unusual to see mild curse words (occasionally) coming from Peck and an orphan 5 year old he befriends. Also, we see Peck jumping out of bed with some woman he knows early in the film. Stay for the ending on this one. Revenge is sweet. Starring: Patricia Quinn, Gregory Peck, Robert F. Lyons, Susan Tyrrell, Jeff Corey Directed by: Henry Hathaway Produced by: Hal B. Wallis Rated: PG (suprisingly as killing is often and graphic) Runtime:95 min Sound Mix:Mono (Westrex Recording System) Color:Color (Technicolor) Aspect Ratio:1.85 : 1
