“It is my pleasure to make comments on Rio Bravo, considering all the hype that already has been written about it. True, it is not socially redeeming, nor does it make a political statement, itu0026#39;s just darn fun, i.e. entertaining. Whatu0026#39;s wrong with that? I couldnu0026#39;t care less if it is a redemption by Hawks for u0026quot;High Noonu0026quot;! I know one thing is for certain, when you watch John Wayne, Dean Martin, Walter Brennan, and the rest of the cast, you can tell that they had a really good time making the film, this, I believe is plain to see. Add a top notch script and very fine acting, good scenery, a love angle, and enough action to satisfy, and it adds up to a classic movie no matter how you judge it. 10 for 10.”
