    A classic old western film starring John Wayne, Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson as a defunct threesome; one wounded, another drunk, and the last one a young gunslinger. They are ask by a local sheriff to help keep a bad guy’s brother in jail. This is a western film for people who don’t even like westerns.

    The movie is simultaneously an apogee of the classic Western style, with its principled violence in defense of just law, and an eccentrically hyperbolic work of modernism, which yokes both bumptious erotic comedy and soul-searing rawness to the mission.

    To watch Rio Bravo is to see a master craftsman at work. The film is seamless. There is not a shot that is wrong. It is uncommonly absorbing, and the 141-minute running time flows past like running water.

    Wayne, of course, walks off with the show -- not by doing anything in particular, but simply by being what he is: at 51, still one of the most believable he-men in Hollywood.

    Rio Bravo is a big, brawling western.

    Name user

    Howard Hawks's finest western (1959), and perhaps his finest film.

    Despite its slickness, virility, occasional humor and, if it may be repeated, authentic professional approach, it is well-made but awfully familiar fare.

    Name user

    Arguably Hawks' greatest film.

    A comic western that ambles through its two hours and 21 minutes, it always has time to pause for a joke, a song or banter among the characters.
