Rating: B+ -- Though Jack Conway gets creit, it's Howard Hawks who's responsible for this exciting biopic of the legendary revolutionary leader, well played by Wallace Beery, and one of MGM's biggest hits of 1934. Full Review

This picture is noisy, violent and occasionally brutal. It is also spectacular, authoritative and intensely interesting. Wallace Beery as Pancho Villa has never been better. A picture for the hardier-minded. Full Review

It's a big, impressive production which sets out to make Wallace Beery's Pancho Villa appear as a somewhat sympathetic and quasi-patriotic bandit. But Beery's characterization... lets Pancho down too much. Full Review

There is also no denying the fact that Wallace Beery is not everybody's Villa. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- In casting the homely Wallace Beery as one of the heroes of the Mexican Revolution, Hollywood announced its intentions: they weren't going to take it seriously. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

This biography begins its story with a young Pancho, driven to repulsion of the Diaz regime when he witnesses one of its soldiers kill his father. Pancho turns against the government, becoming one of the most ruthless bandits ever known to Mexico, but eventually helping to put the honorable Francisco Madero to power. After Madero's assassination, Pancho himself is called upon to lead the masses, but being a better fighter than a bureaucrat, he relinquishes the presidency when he is able to restore Mexico to its people.
