4.0 out of 5 stars Howard Hawks last film
This 1970 western marked the end of director Howard Hawks carrer. Although this film is not as good as the previous classic Hawks westerns(Red River, Rio Bravo or El Dorado) and this one as a story line similar to Rio Bravo and El Dorado, it is a nice western one of the last made in a classic Hollywood style.
Beguining at the end of the civil war with a fantastic...

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't say comfortable eh?
Out of Paramount Pictures, Rio Lobo is directed and produced by Howard Hawks (the last film he would direct) and stars John Wayne, Jorge Rivero, Jeniffer O'Neill, Jack Elam & Christopher Mitchum. It's written by Leigh Brackett & Burton Wohl, musically scored by Jerry Goldsmith and photographed by William H. Clothier on location at Cuernavaca, Mexico & Tuscon, Arizona...

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty dreadful after the first bit, 7 Jan. 2009

This review is from: Rio Lobo [DVD] [1970] (DVD)
I've been watching a few John wayne westerns and saw this cheap in the Zavvi clear-out sale. After the initial Civil war set train robbery, the thing degenerates into a nineteen seventies Western TV show in terms of acting and production values. Any time Jennifer O'Neal is on screen is a bad time.

John Wayne and Jack Elam do their best, but this is a real stinker. Compare and contrast with 'Fort Apache', 'She Wore a Yellow Ribbon' and 'The Searchers' or - if John Ford's not your taste - 'Rio Bravo' and 'True Grit.'

Painful, but two stars as the train robbery opening is pretty good.

As a John Wayne fan this was a film I had missed. Not one of his greatest but still very enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Hawks mess., 28 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Rio Lobo [DVD] [1970] (DVD)
I've watched this film 3 times over the years and it does not get better.

Good dvd picture quality.

Jack Elam over-acting as only he can.

3 nice girls and a reasonable Jorge Rivero performance cannot save this dog.

It is like 2 films rolled into one and just gets worse and worse.
