Movie Reviews

A western of modest virtues
Parisonn of Atlantis | Minneapolis, Minnesota | 10/06/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Those seeking one of those "spaghetti westerns" which are filled with noise and violence and exaggerated flourishes will probably be disppointed in "Chino." It moves at a deliberate pace, keeps the action in check, and knows the virtue of silence. The result is an odd, understated movie that almost qualifies as a "character study."Charles Bronson plays a loner who runs a small horse-farm in the waning days of the American frontier. He takes in a runaway boy as a helper, visits an Indian village on the verge of extinction, and engages in a hesitant courtship with the sister of a hostile landowner. That's about it for the plot which concludes in a somber, realistic fashion.The by-play between Bronson and real-life wife Jill Ireland is mildly amusing, the scenery is attractive and well-photographed, and for those who like to see Bronson with his shirt off, there's a scene where he's hanged by the wrists and flogged across his bare back by one of the hostile landowner's hired men."
Charles bronson at his best...

Pointless!
Fairy Tale Girl ! | Bahamas | 04/18/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As others have said and I agree this movie has a lot of quailty issues for sure. However I could have overlooked a lot of that including some questionable not to mention cheesy content, IF it had had a decent ending. It just seemed so pointless, to have him lose the woman and then he gives up the kid and his ranch on his own anyway. She gives him up to save him and then he gives everything up anyway. What point did that serve? I can deal with a hard realistic ending If it serves a purpose, But this ending just didn't make sense to me."
VERY BORING AT TIMES
MICHAEL TAYLOR | RICHMOND, VA USA | 10/15/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"A HALF INDIAN HORSE BREEDER [THE LATE GREAT CHARLES BRONSON] FALLS IN LOVE WITH A WOMAN [BRONSON'S DECEASED FORMER WIFE JILL IRELAND]. WHEN HER RACIST BROTHER FINDS OUT ABOUT IT, HE GETS ANGRY AND DECIDES TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THIS WESTERN IS SIMPLY TOO SLOW MOVING AND TOO BORING AT TIMES. BRONSON'S DECENT PERFORMANCE IN THIS MOVIE IS THE ONLY THING SAVING THIS ONE. IT'S SIMPLY A WESTERN THAT TRYED TO BE TOO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT IT IS. BRONSON FANS DESERVE MUCH BETTER THAN THIS. IF YOU WANNA SEE A GOOD CHARLES BRONSON WESTERN, RENT OR BUY ''ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST''."
