Now, as honest friends, the three companions ride into Rio Lobo--a dusty town in the middle of the desert overcome by corruption--to bring to justice the one who sold McNally out; however, the town is rife with the betrayer's murderous cut-throats. Can McNally avenge his bosom buddy and clean up Rio Lobo?Reviews:"Rio Lobo is the final masterpiece by Howard Hawks. A great plot from the Civil War and after the war. The plot thickens when Christopher Mitchum and Jorge Rivero join with the Duke's quest to find the Union traitors. After a big gold heist and mad chase it seemed like the rest of the story might be anticlimactic. However, Jack Elam and David Huddleston give uplifting stellar performances that keep the action at fever pitch. Victor French also gives a memorable performance as Ketcham, the villainous land baron. With all the wonderful performances Jennifer O'Neill as Shasta Delaney stole the show. She played the part of the woman fighting the good ol' boys and the love interest of Jorge Rivero to perfection. John Wayne and Howard Hawks picked the finest cast for their final collaboration." Written by frank4122 on IMDb.com"Simply put, this is one of the greatest Westerns of the '70s. And with the kind of clout it has, it couldn't possibly miss.Hawks' direction, Brackett and Wohl's script, Goldsmith's score and even the legendary Yakima Canutt as second unit director all do their parts to make this one of the brightest and snappiest tales from the Old West ever.Oh yeah, and the Duke's in it, too. Comfortable as ever in a genre he basically dominates anyway, John Wayne (the great "re-actor") makes every word he says and every action he takes as stalwart and as forceful as if he were taking to the screen for the first time.Much has been made of how weak the younger actors are, but considering the circumstances, they do well for themselves (even a young Lansing, who would go on to bigger and better things beyond the camera).The liveliest performance, though, is saved for good old Jack Elam, as looney as ever, and handy with a shotgun as well as mouth harp. He also has the best line: "Don't mind if I shoot anyway, it makes me feel better."You'll no doubt recognize a lot of faces in this film, and probably be surprised to see them there (yes, THAT George Plimpton) but in a film this big and this good, it looks like everyone wanted to get into the act.And through it all, Wayne swaggers and shoots and helps save the Western way of life.You have to admit, there ain't nothing like the "Rio" thing!Ten stars. Check out "Rio Lobo" but just because The Duke looks at ease here, don't call him "comfortable"." Written by Mister-6 on IMDb.com"Terrific Wayne-Hawks Western, almost remake of RIO BRAVO, which happens to be the greatest Western ever made. This is great fun, loaded with action, lotsa comedy, great finish with the Duke, Elam, Mike Henry and the vengeful Sherry Lansing. And Chris Mitchum's in there somewhere. My #4 film of '70. Young people, if you wanna see a Bad John Wayne film, check out BARBARIAN AND THE GEISHA. If you're lookin' for a Bad Hawks movie - Stop. There ain't any. Not even RED LINE 7000."
