Critic Reviews for The Train Robbers
One of John Wayne's last films (he died in 1979) is also one of his weakest, a tired and tiresome Western for which he is way too old.
How can the author of this piece of shit be the same guy who wrote Seven Men From Now and Comanche Station?
Audience Reviews for The Train Robbers
There's a plot here, a story, but this film, filled with shots of Wayne and his band riding (riding left, riding right, up hills, crossing rivers, riding, riding) is actually more concerned with aging. Thank goodness for Ann Margret who saves this from being a visit to the rest home.
Very formulatic and average in terms of plot, but it doesn't really matter when John Wayne's in it. This is actually a very fun movie and extremely watchable. While it's not fantastic or one of The Duke's best, it's a solid entry in his film career and harmless in nature. You really can't go that wrong with John Wayne if you're a fan of his.
This is a rollicking caper from writer/director Burt Kennedy, a specialist in Westerns with a comic touch. Here he sets a mood of amiable adventure among colourful characters, not stinting on the two-fisted action that's part of all the best John Wayne Westerns.
