Not all bad apart from sudden change in character's attitudes
27 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not all bad for a late (1968) version of a familiar theme, with an interesting cast - not least the normally aggressive Leo Gordon playing one of the world's losers (though he does toughen up later on).

The only real fault was the way that several characters' attitudes changed rather too quickly from being antagonistic towards the marshal to supporting him. And didn't Sullivan recover quickly from his night of fever after his rattlesnake bite; apparently he nearly died twice, but the next morning he was fit and ready for his concluding heroics.

Wendell Corey does very well as the town boss, and I wish we had seen more of John Russell in Westerns; he has the longest speech in the film when explaining his "history" with Sullivan, and he puts it over well.
