  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Imposant et souvent magistral, le solide James Stewart incarne avec retenue un magnifique vengeur dans un film plein qui atteint par instants un inoubliable sens du lyrisme, accompli et séduisant, de par la dextérité du réalisateur Anthony Mann... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

  3. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    High class dramatic Western with some strong Shakespearian undertones. Aline McMahon gets all the best lines, Cathy O´Donnell´s part is thankless.

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Almost a masterpiece but I had a hard time bearing Alex Nicol as Dave the psychotic son with Oedipian problems. Strongly recommended.

  5. JonMB's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    This movie could have been more. Pretty good story but is marred by some weak supporting acting and some badly choreographed action/fight scenes. Not a bad movie. You just have to overlook some of it's weaknesses.

  7. Alexandre Roy's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Anthony Mann and James Stewart. How can you go wrong? This revenge tale of almost shakespearian proportions, beautifully photographed in Technicolor Cinemascope, packs the kind of punch you're looking for in a western. It's not perfect (the romantic subplot seemed really forced) but it wears its flaws well. As far as Mann westerns go I think I still prefer "Man of the West" but it's a close second.

  8. Rohith Varma's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    This brought back to my mind what Godard clarified to us in an interview,that he believed the mysterious skill endowed upon American story-tellers,the ability to dream up Elysian stories that would go on to touch people all around the globe irrespective of their conditioning as movie-lovers.In this one the stage goes back to the western,a dreamscape where men floated about in the dirt and beauty that makes the.....

  9. Holyphool's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Magnificent revenge drama bordering on Greek tragedy as the vast, cinemascope new mexican landscapes unfold to reveal a complex tale of greed, and family disintegration. Mann's violence has never been so physical and the uncovering of the deceit and truth of these characters make this one of the truly great Westerns, with Jimmy Stewart giving a performance of profound honesty.

  10. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Alex Nicol is the weak link in this dark revenge Western that's anchored solely on the combination of Stewart's performance and Mann's direction. The story is solid, not following the typical outcomes you'd expect, but it's at its weakest when not focusing on Stewart. An entertaining but far from perfect final collaboration for the duo.

  11. Adam Suraf's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Stewart, Kennedy, and Crisp are all excellent in this last of the famous Mann/Stewart westerns.

  12. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Jack Elam made a pointless cameo.

  13. Christopher Taylor's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    James Stewart plays a convincing role in a classic Hollywood era western that strives for a level of realism and characterization uncommon by most standards. An exemplary western.

  14. Davenport's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    Interesting, dark Western from the team of Mann/Stewart. Beautiful, stark New Mexico landscapes, and a great performance from Arthur Kennedy and Alex Nicol as villainous cowhands.

  15. filmcapsule's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    A gorgeous Western, whose landscapes are as wide and deep as its characters and mythic grandeur. Stewart isn't quite as wild and feral as in his other collaborations with Mann, but he's a single-minded man whose fierce individualism and righteousness crashes into a tangle of familial politics, violence and longing.

  16. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    The final collaboration between Jimmy Stewart and Anthony Mann is a knockout, raising this western from just another horse opera to a drama of almost Greek proportions. Stewart is excellent in the titular role, playing a man seeking revenge for his brother's death. Mann's direction is solid, and he uses the Technicolor Cinemascope to its fullest advantage. A solid film all around.

  17. Dave's rating of the film The Man from Laramie

    I have come to the conclusion that this is the best Mann-Stewart collaboration and one of the finest westerns if the era. All the Mann-Stewart westerns are outstanding, but this one stands out just a bit from the rest.
