Oh dear
29 April 2005 | by (Norfolk) – See all my reviews

Some films just shouldn't be re-made, even if the original is inconvenient enough to be in a foreign language or black and white.

That's not me being prissy because good films like great songs are often made over again and again. However, with films like Red River a new version can only suffer when put against the original.

Seen for itself this might be a decent example of the new western but up against the legends of the past it is always fighting a losing battle. The standards of acting, direction, technical horsemanship and music were just too good to be repeated now when the Western is a rare appearance rather than a movie career. Shame - but when the re-makes of The Godfather and Star Wars come out all of you will know what I mean!
