Good, middlin' Scott Western

"While Columbia studios' TEN WANTED MEN is not a top drawer Western like COMANCHE STATION or RIDE LONESOME of a few years later, it is never less than entertaining---the kind of "super B" feature that enthralled sagebrush-addicts back in the 1950s. Certainly this is no Budd Boetticher directed product, and it lacks his stunning, distinctive touches, but there is enough action to keep any fan glued to his TV set. Richard Boone, who appeared in a number of Randy Scott's 1950s Westerns (most notably in THE TALL T), stands out as a superbly drawn villain. And Scott is always excellent."

"i don't know why anyone gives this film less than five star rating and on top of it praise the budd boetichher westerns. though boeticher films are great, i find the pre-boetciher-scott westerns the best as there are more traditional and less talky and grim than the boeticher westerns. Ten wanted men is no exception; it is fast paced, well-plotted and has plenty of intense action to keep your eyes peeled. definately one of scott's best. sometimes i find that in the scott-boeticher westerns, there's too much talking and walking around with some pretentious talk that can drag the film down."
Fair To Middling Scott Western

"Ten Wanted Men, as many of Randolph Scott's other fifties Westerns, suffers in comparison to the Budd Boetticher-directed Westerns featuring Scott. Once again, as with some of the non-Boetticher Scott films, this movie has a great cast, interesting plot features, and lots of potential, but the payoff is not as great as it should be.
Scott plays a rancher who takes in a young Mexican woman who is being relentlessly pursued by Richard Boone, who is a rancher coveting Scott's vast land holdings. Scott's generosity toward the woman gives Boone the perfect excuse to start trouble, and he hires a gang of thugs, including Leo Gordon and Lee Van Cleef, to terrorize and try to kill Scott, Scott's brother, and Scott's nephew.
Boone, who is one of the alltime great Western actors, seems out of place as a desperate cad who has to hire other men to do his dirty work. Also, this film contains many elements of Scott's other movies, and rather than seeming fond and comfortable, they seem tired and warmed over.
Scott is Scott, and that says a lot. He was often criticized for his perceived lack of acting ability, but there was a humanity and honesty about his characters that drew audiences to him then, and still works today, making him one of the most appealing American actors. But Ten Wanted Men would have been better served by Boetticher, Raoul Walsh, or another capable Western director."
