Ratings & Reviews

  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Hombre

    ***1/2. Martin Ritt gets interested in the western genre in order to discuss racism. Now is Paul Newman the right choice here ? You can talk for hours about it. Recommended.

  2. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Hombre

    The subject and the story are commendable. A revisionist Western. Racism against the native Indians is highlighted. So are the negative traits of the white men who made money out of the subjugation of the the native Indians. Even the attitudes towards Mexicans are well etched. The film is all about values and humanism and not about killing. The opening sequence of the black stallion leading wild horses is amazing.

  3. Aardsy's rating of the film Hombre

    Technically great, but lacks pizzazz.

  4. José Neves's rating of the film Hombre

    TV. Cinematography by James Wong Howe.

  5. SpacePirate's rating of the film Hombre

    One of Ritt's 5 best films I'd say. Falls just short of classics like Hud and Long Hot Summer. Newman approaches the roll with a complex mixture of bitterness, hate, and in the end, compassion. Another striking performance in his storied career. Fine supporting cast also. One of the last great westerns from the classic era. 4.5 stars

  6. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Hombre

    Rare dialogues. Little action. But if dialogues and action performed: wonderful. Great movie.

  7. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Hombre

    hard and dry, just like segregation.

  8. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Hombre

    A great western by Ritt with a great cast and fine Leonard dialogue.

  9. Kentel's rating of the film Hombre

    Although not being the best novel written by Elmore Leonard (the cliché of the silent Indien - again-), the movie, thanks to a splendid cast, is acceptable : Newman and Cilento, for sure, but particularly Richard Boone as the most frightening brute ever seen in a western.
