Classic action-packed Western has lots of cursing, violenceFilm Freak CentralJune 28, 2007
A forgotten masterpiece.Movie MetropolisMay 24, 2007
Even with a closing that breaks with tradition, The Cowboys is not as eventful as one would have hoped for in a John Wayne movie.EmanuelLevy.ComNovember 10, 2006
At the center of this picture, just as in Red River, is the passing of the Western mores and masculinity code from John Wayne to the younger generation. Rydell's Western is formulaic and familiar, but the Duke is in top form.Draxblog Movie ReviewsOctober 11, 2005
how old Hollywood promoted conservative agenda with the skill and efficiency modern-day liberals and leftists can only dream aboutOzus' World Movie ReviewsSeptember 16, 2005
An engaging late John Wayne Western, though the macho philosophy of the need to kill might turn off the more liberal viewer.
