Played out as a seat-of-the-pants con game of shifting alliances and double crosses, it's a cheerfully ruthless tale that served as a veritable blueprint for the mercenary brand of Italian spaghetti westerns of the 1960s.
Vera Cruz is one of the better Westerns that no one remembers . . . .
It's amazing that Aldrich found time to be simultaneously playful, thoughtful, and angry as well as compact and economical, cramming all this stuff into a fast-moving, action-packed 94 minutes.
Behind Aldrich's humoristic veneer and lush eye lurks a despairing absurdist
If you like your westerns with a salsa topping, this one should be spicy enough.
Rousing western set South of Border with Cooper and Lancaster in blazing style.
There's 3 mil in gold in the offing, travelling only a coupla miles in post-American Civil War Mexico, where many ex-soldiers now ply their trade as gun-for-hires. So it is that the Coop, former Southern man of means runs into typical carpetbaggin' Northern rogue Lancaster and uneasily team together in a play for the moolah. Do they trust each other? Okay, so what if you know that there's a gunfight waiting at the end of the piece right from the start, Aldrich throws in so many twists and turns that its well worth the ride.
Old school western that's gloriously and shamelessly politically-incorrect. Features genre giants like Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster, Cesar Romero, Ernest Borgnine, Jack Elam and Charles Bronson.
Ordinary western about a whole lot of nothing enhanced by two legendary actors and a decent supporting cast doing what they can to breath life into it.
Western Classic and one of the movies that established Burt Lancaster's Blendax grin. Him and Cary Cooper are meeting in Mexico during the revolution, trying to make their ways as guns for hire (along with Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson and Jack Elam). During their job of protecting a carriage there is a lot of double-crossing and surprisingly many amoral characters, with Cooper of course being the one with the heart of gold under the rough skin. The interaction between the two main characters, friends and foes against all odds, is what carries this film, despite of a rather low number of real action scenes. This is old-fashioned Western movie making, for fans of the genre, and yet the film avoids most stereotypes and uses a rather unique setting.
