Rating: 2.5/4 -- If The Way West does not wholly succeed as drama, it is at least a well-made and wholly professional Hollywood Western. Full Review
The Way West is made with spirit and feeling and, if it has all the old stuff in it, it also has three rock-like old-timers showing their - years but also their assurance, their professionalism, their sheer much-used talent. Full Review
Rating: C- -- Victor McLaglen's son Andrew directed in a lackluster way this dreary epic of the move Westward. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Kirk Douglas leads a wagon train of stars to a better life in the untamed Wild West.
Adapted from A.B. Guthrie Jr.'s Pulitzer prize-winning novel, a sprawling Western adventure about a wagon train of pioneers making the overland journey to Oregon. The party is led by Senator William J. Tadlock, a visionary of almost fanatical strictness whose unyielding ways don't sit well with an ill-tempered fellow pioneer or his less-than-enthusiastic trail scout. As the group struggles to survive the arduous trek, their many hardships are compounded by interpersonal conflict.
