Quotes

Maria Stoner: I thought he was your friend?
Dee Bishop: He is, but that don't make him any less disgusting. You take Pop, for instance. He was due to be shot the day he was born. And that heart of his is nothing more but a festering sore.

All-star western made big money in 1968, now a faded hit...
11 June 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

"Bandolero!" is a time-filler which has been appropriately relegated to the late-late show, although it was one of the top-grossing moneymakers of 1968. Despite a solid cast, it's a formula western with the actors going through the motions. James Stewart does have the rare opportunity to play a bad guy (albeit a decent bad guy), while Dean Martin, also a villain, is improbably cast as Jimmy's brother! George Kennedy is the salt-of-the-earth sheriff who tries bringing them in, and his love for kidnapped Raquel Welch is rather touching (she's an easy presence on the screen). Too bad the movie has so little energy; the violence (including several shootouts and a bloody attack by Mexican bandits) is surprisingly vicious for a star-driven western, but otherwise it's a lazy, middle-of-the-road effort. **1/2 from ****
