One of the best westerns ever filmed ~~ John Wayne at his best. Superb story set against a Texas frontier backdrop complete with a colorful cast of characters. The story ~~ a 'search' for a child kidnaped by Indians ~~ is told with feeling and a reverence for the Old West.This is a movie to savor; superbly crafted by everyone involved. And, best of all ~~~ 'Duke' gives a performance that towers in western film lore. If you aren't familiar with 'The Searchers', saddle up & join them. You won't regret it.

You don't have to be a fan of Westerns or John Wayne to enjoy this great film. There is not a wasted line or scene in this movie. From the great look of the American West, John Fords immense vision and direction, to outstanding and believable performances and dialogue, this is truely a great film. Right from the start, the acting and writting leaves you with an impression that the characters had a previous and eventful life together, not one created out of the Holleywood blue. John Wayne's portrayal is stark and by far his best. He does not hesitate to imbue his character as faulted, racist and vengefull. But every performance in this movie is perfect. The West is portrayed as a hard, challenging world, and it's inhabitants are a mix of young and old, experienced, naive, native and immigrant. Each scene is a work of visual art. If ever a film deserved to be re-released on the big screen, this is it. This is a must have movie for any true fan of American film.

I believe in my heart that this was not only John Wayne's best picture he ever made, but I believe it is the best western ever made. I am here to tell you I have seen allot of them and this takes it all.

This movie deals in it external form about the search of Debbie, a girl kidnapped by the Indians after the assassination of his parents and brothers. Much of these action occurs in impressive landscapes, but the plot are superbly carried over all by two figures. The main one is Ethan Edwards, the uncle of Debbie, accompanied shortly by Brad Jorgensen, the fiancé of his sister Lucy, but who has soon to be killed driven to despair by Lucy's terrible murder. The other is the adopted nephew of Ethan, Martin Pawley, a half-indian. But these external pursuit goes parallel to another interior one, because these searchers are going to change themselves in the course of the same. Martin suffers the most complete evolution, because he passes from being inexpert and childish to a mature person. But in the case of Ethan, I think his search doesn¿t finish with the movie, but possibly it began before, continues during it all and probably it never ends or we don¿t know in what. Ethan is a complex personage. At the beginning he¿s shown as an experienced tough man, a loser officer of the American Civil War and another battles in Mexico and more. But he hides another face, asocial and with uncontrollable violence. He seems have to yield his love Martha to his brother Aaron when gone to the war, an neither shows affection by money or material possessions. Truly we don¿t know what Ethan prosecutes really in the search, if to save Lucy, or to kill her for having been converted into an Indian, or if he¿s perhaps in search of himself or what. Martin gets to understand the problem with Ethan: he values his knowledge and great ability for fighting, but fears his dark side not far of madness, so he decides he has to continue in the search and simultaneously to take care of his uncle. Curiously, Scar, the Comanche chief author of the crimes seems to share some characteristics of Ethan. The seekers fulfill his aim in finding Lucy though it takes them several years and a lot of penalties, but significantly, at the end Ethan remains alone and outdoors. The others don¿t need him anymore while his personal search hasn¿t finished. Superb film, so, if you are a searcher of good cinema I¿m afraid you have a task as hard as in the screen because today it¿s practically impossible to find movies as good as this.
