If it lacks the formal perfection of Rio Bravo and the moving elegy for men grown old of El Dorado, it's still a marvellous film. Full Review
The Duke knows by instinct what audiences accept without question: whatever he may be called in the script, he is always unmistakably John Wayne. And who would have it any other way? Full Review
Rating: B- -- A rambling Western. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Director Howard Hawks' swan song was RIO LOBO, which teamed him for the fifth and final time with John Wayne...
The fact that its best action sequence, the first, was directed by the second unit is emblematic of Hawks's relative lack of engagement with the material. Full Review
[I]t has a pleasing, insouciant attitude to pace, preferring laid-back humour and relaxed rhythms.
Rating: 1.5/4 -- For such a refined director as Hawks to end his career on a note like this, having made some of the finest films in the history of American cinema, is an atrocity not worth the silver used in the negative. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
A classic action-filled John Wayne western is set into motion with a spectacular robbery of a Union pay train by Confederate guerrillas. The train's colonel (Wayne) jails the enemy leaders (Jorge Rivero, Chris Mitchum) but the three men later become friends when the war ends. Together they seek the Union traitors responsible for a string of Confederate train robberies, a mission that culminates in a rousing shoot-'em-up finale.
Howard Hawks's final film once again teams him with John Wayne, with a script by Leigh Brackett (who also wrote his EL DORADO and RIO BRAVO). The time is just after the end of the Civil War. Wayne is Union Colonel Cord McNally, who is teamed with two Confederate soldiers he captured during the war in order to take down a thieving bootlegger. Their travels take them to a small town being held in terror by an evil Sheriff. McNally and his crew decide to help the townspeople with their own brand of justice. With a considerable amount of humor and Hawks's reliable formula in which a motley band of men unite for a common cause, RIO LOBO is a fitting conclusion to both his western trilogy and a distinguished career.
The Civil War has ended, and a Union officer has a score to settle with two Confederates, who keep stealing his cargos of gold. He finally catches them, but the duo won't snitch on who informs them about the valuable shipments. Could it be someone within the colonel's camp'
