The Leader
5 February 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 23 year old John Wayne handles leadership well in this film. There are moments where he proves that he can express deep feeling to lift him above the status of a personality. He demonstrates good horsemanship too, and hones his tools ready for subsequent productions.
