There are no subtitles on this DVD (the Optimum release; there may be subtitles on the Momentum version that Andy B has reviewed), which is always annoying to say the least, but the sound is ok and the aforementioned music is not intrusive in scenes involving dialogue. Though that's not much help if you're deaf. Perhaps in view of that I should have knocked a star off, but I'm in a good mood, and it's not often one gets to see Charles Bronson bottle-feeding an uninterested foal.
Chino Valdez (Bronson), half Indian, half Mexican, lives in solitude on his ranch and beavers away breeding and breaking horses. When one night a 15 year old stray youngster appears at his door looking for bed, board and maybe work, it signals a chain of events that will ultimately define the both of them.
It happens once in a while, a Western fan will observe the mixed notices for a particular genre piece and kind of dismiss it as being far from essential viewing, even if it happens to star an actor you greatly enjoy. The Valdez Horses is a beautiful Western, a thoughtful and reflective genre piece that seems to have been damned by those who got a completely different Bronson movie to the one they was hoping for. Regardless of the question of just how much directing John Sturges actually did on the picture (it's rumoured Italian Duilio Coletti did most of the work), the end result is a mature and engaging piece of entertainment.
It's a film that belongs in the company of Monte Walsh, Will Penny and Lonely Are the Brave, films that feature a macho male protagonist at odds with what is happening around him. In Chino Valdez's case, he's a loner, he likes a drink and he's constantly having to defend himself against the racists down in the town. He's at his happiest when it's just him and his horses, man and beast clearly understand each other.Read more ›
Full screen dvd, which is no surprise as it was filmed in 1:37.1 & it could be an open matt copy which gives you the full image any way.
Nice simple western story with Bronson giving a good performance.
Nice to see a clear copy rather than the awful public domain copies under the title Chino.
If your a fan of Bronson a must or just nice easy going westerns
The story concerns a young runaway who turns up at the door of Chino Valdez a horse breeder, played of course by Charles Bronson. Valdez lives alone on his small ranch caring for his horses. He befriends the lad who becomes a sort of protege. But the balance is upset, as is so often the case in a male world, by the arrival of a very attractive woman, in the shapely figure of Jill Ireland, or Mrs Bronson as she was then.Read more ›
