Underneath it all Nevada Smith is hack work, with a plot that is not so much unbelievably bad but simply unbelievable. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Not a worthless film, although it's impossible to take seriously. Full Review
Rating: 58/100 -- The best thing that can be said about Nevada Smith is that it goes in, does what it needs to do, and gets out before it's too late.
Rating: 5/5 -- Gritty revenge western with McQueen in top form.
Beautifully shot by Lucien Ballard. McQueen is as quietly hypnotic as ever.
Rating: C+ -- Overlong, dull and labored follow-up to Harold Robbins' The Carpetbaggers. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Based on the characters in Harold Robbins' THE CARPETBAGGERS, this is the story Nevada Smith (Steve McQueen), a half-breed Native American whose parents are viciously murdered by a gang of toughs led by Tom Fitch (Karl Malden). Nevada sets out to kill the gang after being taught to use weapons by Jonas Cord, Sr. (Brian Keith). Nevada kills the first of the gang in a knife fight and commits a crime to get into the prison where the second outlaw is being held and kills him, but that's just the beginning of his difficult journey of vengeance. Veteran director Hathaway (TRUE GRIT) creates a strong vehicle for the rugged McQueen.
