Oh my what have they done?
11 June 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Oh my what have they done? Why would anyone take on the awesome responsibility of filling John Waynes shoes especially when he won an Oscar for the role? Warren Oats takes over as Roster Cogburn in this "further adventures" story. He makes no attempt to look like Wayne except for the eye patch. In this film he is sporting a full beard and an equally full buffalo coat. I am assuming that he wanted to add his own take to the character but it fails something awful. The story line is weak. The supporting cast is weak. But most of all Oats himself is weak. I must say that I loved Oats when he did what he was best known for. A supporting player. He was super in the Wild Bunch or Major Dundee. He was known for playing tough, down on his luck rednecks and hicks. Sherif Cogburn was none of that. Wayne played him as a cunning and grizzled gunslinger slash lawman with vim and vinegar running through his veins. Oats portrayal left me searching my stack of DVD's looking for True Grit to get the bad taste out of my mouth from this film. If you are looking for a good, not great western just to amuse yourself pop in a flick like They Came To Cordoba or Rio Conchos. So do yourself a favor. If you ever see this late at night as you are flipping through the channels quick jump up and pop in a western into your DVD player. Any western. It's worth the trip to the DVD cabinet.
