Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
screen legend 'Clint Eastwood' plays a familiar role as a no-nonsense
lone gunman.
'Joe Kidd' is hired by land baron 'Frank Harlam' to track down 'Luis
Chama'
'Luis Chama' fronts the claim on land for his people, all relevant
paperwork having been lost in a fire, 'Frank Harlam' owns much of the
land being claimed by 'Mexican' 'Chama' for his fellow countrymen.
'Joe' doesn't like the way 'Frank' conducts business as a consequence
of which he changes sides.
plenty of gun action follows.
not one of 'Clint's' best perhaps, however his screen presence is as
always - 'Dominant'
sadly, picture quality is not as good as it might have been, film studio's
know that films with screen heroes such as 'Clint' will be in demand
when released on this format, just feel more consideration in upgrading
should be normal practice...
when you see the picture quality on Blu-ray of even older films such as
'Lawrence of Arabia' and 'Zulu' among many.....it just proves it can be
done ???

One of the less well known Westerns staring Clint Eastwood but well worth watching. Clint Eastwood stars as a bounty hunter, Joe Kidd, who is hired by a wealthy landowner, Frank Harlan (played by Robert Duvall), to track down a Mexican freedom fighter. But, in typical Clint Eastwood fashion, Joe Kidd has his own ideas about the outcome of the chase. This western, directed by John Sturges, is full of action and well worth watching.

Format: DVD
You would expect a western directed by John Sturges, written by Elmore Leonard, starring Clint Eastwood and that most talented of American actors Robert Duvall, to be something well above the average. Sadly that is not the case, it is very routine fare indeed. Sturges was past his peak and Elmore Leonard was still developing as a writer before his rise to fame in the crime genre with "Get Shorty". Eastwood was still trying to find his feet with more realistic roles outside of the spaghetti western.

The films routine story concerns a group of particularly nasty characters lead by a wealthy landowner played by Duvall, who hire Eastwood as a guide to assist in tracking down a Mexican bandit who threatens Duvall's land monopoly. Pretty soon Eastwood realises he is batting for the wrong side and decides to change matters. This of course involves some gunplay and an entertaining finale involving a steam locomotive. John Saxon who seemed to appear in many Mexican roles played the bandit. Although Eastwood is not the semi mythical killing machine that he was in "The man with no name" films, he is still pretty deadly and the body count keeps rising.

Sadly there is no time for characterization. All of the characters are superficial. There was an opportunity to flesh out the bandit character much as Jack Palance did in "The Professionals," but this was lost. Eastwood strolls through proceedings and Duvall is wasted as the stereo type villain. The location filming is one of the few plus points. It is one of Eastwood's more forgotten westerns and there is good reason for that.

Every review of this movie I have read has been negative. Personally I think it is a very good example of the genre. Blu Ray transfer is amazing considering the age of the movie. My advice is go out and buy this one

Format: DVD
This 1972 picture is possibly the weakest of the 10 westerns that Clint made during his carrer. However this does not make Joe Kid a bad movie, it's just not as good as the Dollars triology, Josey Wales, High Plains drifter or Unforgiven, but on the other hand it's at the same level of Two Mules for Sister Sara, wich makes this dvd essential for Clint's western movies fans.
Directed by veteran director John Sturges (Gunfigth at OK Corral and the Great escape)Joe Kid his a competent action western presenting Clint in one of his variations of the Man with no Name caracther, and showcasing a climatic finale that envolves a train...
The dvd has no extras but the film is presented on the original widescreen aspect ratio and several subtitles.

I would recommend that if you're planning on watching this film, don't read any reviews on here. The first two I looked at revealed the entire plot and the outcome. Thanks a bunch...

Another classic western from Clint Eastwood, one of his early films but it is a good one, upgrade to blu-ray is worth it.
