tough western
20 September 2004 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ten Wanted Men is one of the best of Scott's films. It is not in the same category as the ones he made with Budd Boetticher and it can not be compared with them. But it is great fun nonetheless. The beginning, when they play a bad taste joke on the two Stewarts sets the violent tone which will prevail throughout the film. There is no shortage of violence here, they kill without thinking twice and there are plenty of action scenes. There are great actors too. Skip Homeier is the fearless young guy and his first showdown is one of the best moments. Richard Boone is the bad guy which became obsessed with love for Maria (Donna Martell). Leo Gordon and Lee Van Cleef are the bad, bad guys and they are quite good at it. Dennis Weaver is the sheriff which cannot do much with so many gunfighters in town. Irving Ravetch, one of the story writers has to his credit two very important films: Hud and Hombre. If you enjoy a good action western, do not miss Ten Wanted Men.
