  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Man of the West

    Anthony Mann est en manque d'inspiration et Gary Cooper, méconnaissable... www.cinefiches.com

  4. JonMB's rating of the film Man of the West

    This film had a plot and interesting enough characters to make it watchable. Cooper and Julie London give pretty good performances but there is just too much cheesy dialogue and badly choreographed fight scenes to make this film any more than average. The dialogue during the major fight scene sounded like two grade school kids.

  6. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film Man of the West

    "Man Of The West"is a dark western.However,it starts off with a country bumpkin like Cooper,ill at ease with the"modern world".Once he leaves the train,he changes and the film steps back in to the past.On reaching a desolate farm house,a gun comes out of the darkness,followed by"ghosts"from his time as an outlaw.Here is the chance of redemption,for his past deeds.A chance he must take,in the ghost town of Lassoo.

    3.75/5 Gotta love Coop & Lee J. Cobb with the best laugh in the business.

  8. Alexandre Roy's rating of the film Man of the West

    Wow. What an incredible movie. It's so violent physically and emotionnaly, so raw and sad. Lee J. Cobb and Gary Cooper are in their finest form. It's so masterfully directed too. An instant favorite for me. I can't recommend it enough.

  9. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Man of the West

    Crepuscular movie which foreshadows the European spaghetti westerns. Cooper, London, O'Connell and Cobb all feel that they don't longer belong to their time. They have become caricatures: the old cowboy with a past, the cheating card player, the senile outlaw and the singer with a heart. They're already part of history. Masterpiece.

  10. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Man of the West

    Classic drama. They don't make them like this anymore. There's no distraction from the simple story - so everything you see really matters: leaving the railway track, lighting a match in the dark or talking about shoes.

  11. Chuck Williamson's rating of the film Man of the West

    Anthony Mann at his most brutal and uncompromising.

  12. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Man of the West

    Married cowboy and a lady: stupid plot with some useless characters, there is no possibility of romance, pretty bad "High Noon" short in last fifteen minutes. unfortunately it's not Mann's finest hour. B-

  13. Howard Orr's rating of the film Man of the West

    An almost unbearably sad film, with a dying Gary Cooper playing a former outlaw reborn and redeemed by going back to his old bandit stomping ground. (Id combats super-ego?) "I used to live here once."/"When you were a boy?"/"Oh...I don't know what I was." Just gorgeous.

  14. Jake Cole's rating of the film Man of the West

    A man tries to go straight and gets dumped off a train back where he came from. His act of being his old violent self soon becomes just more violent acts, returning him to what he hates in order to win back the freedom (and money) that could allow him to be someone new. God only knows when he'll be back after the film ends.

  15. nrh's rating of the film Man of the West

    Godard Says: "I spoke earlier of vegetal beauty. Gary Cooper's amorphous face belongs to the mineral kingdom: thus proving that Anthony Mann is returning to the basic truths." I'm not sure any of that is true, but this is certainly a highlight of Mann's career, and of the Western in general.

  16. Dave's rating of the film Man of the West

    A role that was tailor-made for Gary Cooper. Anthony Mann reaffirms why he was one of the best directors of westerns to ever work in the genre. I still prefer a number of the films he made with Jimmy Stewart, but this is still a great cap to his foray into westerns.
