too early for the Duke
12 June 2005 | by (somewhere in the middle east) – See all my reviews

Worth watching Duke (the horse)...Duke (the human) leaves a lot to be desired. As a fairly early Western, this picture has many of the classic ingredients...bad guys, good guys, romance, lively crowds of town folks,and even a horse for a hero. The problem is sub-par acting, a ridiculous script, and amateurish direction. However, even with these faults whatever possible enjoyment Western fans might have found is ruined by the incredibly poor acting of John Wayne. It's impossible not to be distracted by his low level of performance and even a cowboy fanatic like myself could not suffer more than a few of his awkward scenes before fleeing the scene myself.
