Reviews of Rio Bravo
User rating -
One of the best westerns ever made, this is the typical Howard Hawks movie. Themes of friends coming together, loyalty and an unwritten code of honour run through the film. With an assured hand, tough and a gentle, yet never dull, Hawks first lets us understand who these people are; from Dean Martin's drunk (caused by a woman) to Ricky Nelson's novice hired gun who has more morals than he suspects the cast fill the screen with an ambling warmth. Leading them all is Wayne in one of his most relaxed, iconic performances. He is as straight as a arrow and uncorruptable. What really makes this fun though is his growing romance with Angie Dickinson's saloon moll. Wayne and Dickinson do the usual Hollywood dance, but with enough sassy dialogue and feeling to make one wonder why they didn't appear more together on celluloid. Add to this great action scenes and it all adds up to a great movie.
