Audience Reviews for The Command


I'm usually not as keen on older movies, but this one is OK. It is always OK when the leading man does not follow protocol, and does his own way.

131205: Not too bad. Very large, long and action packed chase scene. The relationship between Capt.MacClaw and Martha was a little bit overdramatic but oh well, think that was related to the times. Good cavalry movie with unique twist.
