Movie Info

Rancher Taw Jackson (John Wayne) is out for revenge. He was shot by a gunslinger, Lomax (Kirk Douglas), on the orders of mining tycoon Frank Pierce (Bruce Cabot) and framed for a crime he did not commit. Now out of prison, he teams up with former enemy Lomax for an elaborate heist targeted at one of Pierce's gold shipments. Robbing the heavily fortified stagecoach, known as a "war wagon," won't be easy. But the payoff -- $500,000 in gold -- will be sweet payback indeed.

    A very enjoyable western, with Wayne in his usual top form, and Kirk Douglas with an on-screen charisma that is able to match the Duke. Definitely worth checking out, look for it on HD movie net.

    I just really love this movie, two of my favorite actors sharing the screen together in a buddy western. John Wayne and Kirk Douglas are so great together and really make things so much fun, every joke and banter lands perfectly. The plot is really cool, a heist on a battle wagon, it doesn't get much better than that. It's an easy flowing movie that is lovable down to the core.

    Great Western. The Duke seeks revenge on a ruthless mine owner who had him framed and sent to prison. He plans to do so by stealing his gold. The War Wagon is great fun with plenty of exciting action and constant comic relief. The interplay between Wayne and Douglas was sharp and sarcastic, making them an entertaining duo Overall well worth checking out.
