Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This engaging John Wayne vehicle is a solid example of the kind of programmer Wayne made towards the end of his career. The Train Robbers boasts a tight script from Burt Kennedy that blends action, humor, iconic characterizations and the kind of meditations on machismo that define the Wayne filmography. Kennedy's direction is similarly tight, offering a taut pace and well-crafted action sequences. He also gets plenty of mileage out of a flavorful musical score by Dominic Frontiere and grand, scope-format photography by William Clothier. Best of all, Kennedy gets vivid performances from his cast that fit the archetypal characterizations in his script perfectly: Wayne is his classic self as the tough but good-hearted 'man's man' and Ann Margret lays on the charm as the woman who's inexperienced yet strong enough to go toe to toe with him. There's also a gallery of strong supporting performances backing up the star duo: Ben Johnson is charming as Wayne's most faithful friend, Rod Taylor steals a few scene as a motor-mouthed member of the gang and Christopher George has a few dramatically charged scenes as the hard-headed new guy who has to earn Wayne's respect. In short, The Train Robbers is strong genre fare and well worth the time for fans of classic Westerns.

    This movie had a lot of nature scenes that were kind of boring, but the ending made up for it!
