Early Boetticher western entertaining from beginning to end.
Irish (Van Heflin) has a mine in Mexico but when he strikes gold, the Federales commanded by Ruiz take it away from him, and while he is pursued by them his partner gets killed. He is rescued by the revolutionaries commanded by Raquel Noriega (Julie Adams). From then on Irish ends up helping them and falls in love with Raquel. Ruiz is married to Raquel's sister Elena (Abbe Lane). Julie Adams as a Mexican guerrilla fighter is outstanding, she even outshines a bombshell like Abbe Lane. Boetticher knows how to get the most out of the actors, and is a master when it comes to action scenes. Wings of the Hawk is entertaining from beginning to end, not a dull moment in this one.
