a masked robber robs masked robbers, best scene!
26 December 2012 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Almost all of Rod Cameron's westerns ("Salome Where she Danced" an exception) were a full package: good western stories, always a bit too much for the time the movie ran, you had to concentrate otherwise you would miss; plenty of action scenes, shootouts, fistfights, horse and stagecoach chases, you left the movie theater satisfied. In "Brimstone" we have Brimstone "Pop" Courteen and his sons, played by Walter Brennan, the same character as in "My Darling Clementine", who gives life to the movie. Brennan and family are the masked robbers, who are robbed by another masked robber, that's the best part of the film. Good comic scenes of Brennan with an idiotic son, which he barely tolerates. The film would be better in black and white, colors are artificial and ugly. Resuming, this is a typical Cameron western, not as good as "Ride the Man Down", "Panhandle" or "San Antone", but still satisfactory for western lovers.
