Movie Reviews

! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b | TRI STATE AREA | 06/15/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I like Clint Eastwood and for the most part I enjoy his films. 'Joe Kidd' is certainly OK entertainment, but from Eastwood we expect a little more. This is just not one of his better efforts and surprisingly this is one of Robert Duvall's most disappointing performances that I've seen. It's slow moving and makes little sense and also has one of the stupidest endings in the history of film! ......All Aboard! Woo Woo! ;-b"
NOT Eastwood's best, but he can do no wrong in my book...

"Ever since I interviewed Clint Eastwood in the late sixties, I've been a huge fan of his. It was fun watching him go from the very hunky Rowdy Yates on TV's "Rawhide" to a tough cowboy in "Spaghetti Westerns" to Dirty Harry and then into directing and producing his own blockbusters! What a ride he has given the world...and what a creative genius!

That said, when I interviewed him he was just starting negotiations with Joe Kidd...but it's one film I missed...until it came on TV the other night. I gave it a go and I liked it. Clint was not at his best in this film and the film was not the best cinematic effort either. That didn't stop me from enjoying his good looks or watching him practice that trademark snarl... lol

I thought the startling, unrealistic scene where he drove a locomotive into the hotel/bar where Robert Duvall was hiding was hilarious and as good an ending as any for this rather bad movie. It's reported that he said: "Jesus, anything at this point--let's end it."

Typical Eastwood; sounds just like him. Gotta love him...

Endnote: I never thought I'd give anything Eastwood does (or did) less than five stars, but I am giving this a generous four...just because it's him!

"After all of the negative reviews, I wasn't expecting much so I was very surprised how much I liked this movie. I found this far more interesting and compelling than most of Eastwood's westerns. Robert Duvall played a great villain and the story and scenery were top notch."
