Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Clint Eastwood's stardom was supernova, thanks to Dirty Harry; John Sturges, the man behind The Magnificent Seven and a dozen other memorably leathery Westerns, was directing; and Elmore Leonard was the screenwriter. It just goes to show. Joe Kidd is a muddle and a drag, the shoddiest Eastwood vehicle since Rowdy Yates trod in his last cow flop. Kidd, first seen as a duded-up drunk sleeping one off in jail, is supposed to be a horse rancher and an expert tracker--just the fellow a rapacious land-grabber (Robert Duvall committing lazy villainy) needs to chase down the uppity Latino (John Saxon) who's trying to reclaim the grabbed land for its rightful owners. Neither the characters nor the overland pursuit makes any sense, thanks to chasms in the continuity and no direction to speak of. An absurdly arbitrary assault-by-locomotive provides the climax; as Eastwood observed, "Jesus, anything at this point--let's end it." --Richard T. Jameson

4.0 out of 5 stars 'JOE KIDD' PLAYS BY HIS OWN RULES. 7 May 2013
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
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 ???

4.0 out of 5 stars Deacon Mike 21 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten For a Reason 22 Sep 2009
By Bob Salter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood Western! 6 Mar 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars critics wrong again 17 Jun 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Clint 7 Aug 2014
By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
This is another enjoyable Western for Clint Eastwood to star in under the director of John Sturges. A great cast flesh out some enjoyable characters; real nasty villains and corrupt anti-heroes. It doesn’t last long, clocking in at under 90 minutes, but the story is nice and simple with a cat-and-mouse hunt taking place before being turned on its head for a resounding and action packed finale.

Eastwood plays Joe Kidd perfectly, showing just as much respect to the ladies around him as tough justice to the villains he encounters, making him a likeable and humane character. Duvall and Saxon blur the lines between who is good and bad, but both give fine performances respectively and share great screen time with Eastwood.

Great action sequences, tense shoot-outs and nice cinematography make this a rather under-rated offering from Eastwood, but one that is very solid and entertaining. And the finale that involves a steam train driving through a saloon is wonderfully bombastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware spoilers... 31 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
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...
