A strange, ho-hum western
19 June 2000 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I love westerns, though even I found this somewhat disappointing. While not a complete waste, it's odd that a movie named after a certain character would then have this character offscreen or inactive a lot of the time. And though it's based on a Louis L'Amour book, I found the story to be quite predictable, with scenes that have been in countless other westerns. Only if you want to see if Connery and Bardot on the range is as strange as it sounds.
