5 stars out of 5 -- Warm, witty and endlessly welcoming....It's arguably the quintessential Hawks flick.
Wayne, of course, walks off with the show -- not by doing anything in particular, but simply by being what he is: at 51, still one of the most believable he-men in Hollywood. Full Review
Rio Bravo is a big, brawling western. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- It's long but involving, with an unexpectedly good performance from Dean Martin. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- A definitive piece of Americana by way of Howard Hawks, Rio Bravo is what the late 1950s studio system was all about Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- Rio Bravo isn't a Fordian display of vast Western visas; the contours explored here are emotional. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Despite its slickness, virility, occasional humor and, if it may be repeated, authentic professional approach, it is well-made but awfully familiar fare. Full Review
New York Times
No-nonsense Texas border sheriff John T. Chance (John Wayne) fights off ruthless mercenary gunmen in order to keep a murderer in custody. A ragtag band of volunteers, consisting of a singing kid, a toothless old man, a recovering alcoholic, and a spunky woman, assist. Contains an interesting sing-along interlude among the group, and yes, the Duke participates.
John Wayne stars as the sheriff of a small western town who arrests a murderer and then must contend with the aggressive efforts of the killer's brother to free him before the state marshall arrives. Surrounding the town, the villains make repeated runs at the tiny jailhouse where their comrade is incarcerated. The sheriff is left to defend the territory almost single-handedly -- his only aid being a rag-tag crew of misfits, including a drunk, an old cripple, a saloon woman, and a singing teenager. The plot's tensions build to one of the most explosive finales in cinema history.
