Tycoon Reviews

  • Dec 21, 2014

    Tycoon is a decent film. It is about engineer Johnny Munroe who is enlisted to build a railroad tunnel through a mountain to reach mines. John Wayne and Laraine Day give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Richard Wallace did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama and adventure.

    The technicolor looks lovely but this is otherwise dull and standard.

    somewhat average, okay performances and the romance is decent enough, but it really drags quite a bit

    Nice action-romantic with John Wayne who plays a different character than usual. For the first part of the film he plays his standard All-American man, but during the second half he turns to a heel. Laraine Day looks fabulous. The plot had a lot going for it, the photography was nice, the direction OK.

    A nice romantic adventure that celebrates heroic bravery while pointing out the dangers inherent in an uncooperative spirit and rampant individualism. John Wayne may not have been a major star when this movie was made, but he gives his characteristic strong performance.

    Overly melodramatic and certainly formulaic, this Wayne movie does have all-round strong characters, and once the action takes hold it does grow in interest.
