  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    1er long métrage fort prometteur du cinéaste Sam Peckinpah qui s'était déjà bien aguerri dans quelques solides séries télévisées, durant les cinq années auparavant... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    FIRE & STONE: Maureen O'HARA & Brian KEITH. A spaghetti western before the spaghetti westerns, signed PECKINPAH the precursor. A few outbursts of violence unfortunately softened by rivers of syrup & soap. == Un western spaghetti avant les westerns spaghetti, signé PECKINPAH le précurseur. Quelques éclats de violence malheureusement affadis par des rivières de sentiments sirupeux. La pierre & le feu: KEITH & O'HARA.

  3. cony71's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Música inadecuada, al meu parer. No em va agradar gens, temps malperduts. Possiblement sigui jo en aquest moment? O es una fallida, o jo no estic a l'altura.

  4. ClaudiaDr's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    The right spelling of one of the guitar players' name is Laurindo de Almeida, not Laurindo Almeido. The score does no justice to his talent.

  5. Laura Suffield's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

  6. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    never push another man's guilty conscience.

  7. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Average at best. Peckinpahs first entry is by the numbers and the leads seem pretty bored with their characters. The plot itself is interesting, just the finished product leaves a lot to be desired. 2.5 stars, for Peckinpah completists only

  8. Dalibor's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Semi-entertaining piece presenting a far-fetched plot that didn't really have to turn into a love one. Although the crew isn't bad, their characters seem devoid of any credible personality or charisma. Overall result seems somewhat beta-Peckinpah.

  9. João Eça's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

  10. Ezra Winton's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Extreme racism and sexism in film requires context when programmed, and unfortuantely MUBI has provided none here.

  11. Sin título.'s rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Una ejemplificación impresionante sobre como la incapacidad para modificar un proyecto fílmico puede tener resultados extremadamente sosos, afortunadamente Peckinpah pudo redimirse exitosamente en los años venideros.

  12. msmichel's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Peckinpah's debut was a by the numbers studio entry that really failed to show his affinity for the genre that would become apparent soon enough. Keith and O'Hara offer nothing beyond stock with even less given by a weak supporting cast. Hard to believe he would go on from this to make some of the best westerns of all time.

  13. albertofarina's rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Non si vede in italiano dai tempi in cui uscì in sala. Me lo guardo in anteprima sull'imminente passaggio su @raimovie

  14. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Deadly Companions

    Wow ! I recently found, at last, a decent copy of this western and I don’t regret now to have waited so long to see this first Sam Peckinpah effort. The journey through the Arizona desert of these two characters wounded by life is a superb journey through guiltiness. Masterpiece.
