It's still a prime example of a good, sturdy bread-and-butter Western. Full Review

Rating: B -- It's lesser Eastwood (and Leonard and Sturges), but it's impossible to squash the spirit of the work, which carries the film far enough to satisfy basic needs from the genre, making it a lark, but a convincing one. Full Review

1972's JOE KIDD is nonetheless a lean, reasonably satisfying slice of Clint Eastwood outlaw badassery.

Rating: 2/4 -- All I can tell you about Clint Eastwood in Joe Kidd is that he plays a ruthless gunman of few words. This isn't exactly a surprise... The funny thing about Joe Kidd, though, is that we can't keep straight whose side he's on, or why. Full Review

Product Description:

Clint Eastwood stars as the title character in this low-key, moderately politicized variation of his spaghetti Westerns. In New Mexico in the late 1890s, the fiery Louis Chama (John Saxon) leads a group of Mexican-American peasants in a fight for their land after the evidence of their ownership has been destroyed in a questionable courthouse fire. The wealthy Frank Harlan (Robert Duvall), who also lays claim to the disputed land, has decided to bypass the legal system and hires a group of killers to take care of Chama. Kidd, who initially rejects Harlan's offer to join his hunting party, changes his mind when he finds that Chama has stolen some of his horses and brutalized one of his ranch hands. However, after seeing Harlan randomly pick off some Mexicans and becoming interested in Helen Sanchez (Stella Garcia), Kidd begins to think twice about his current employer. After he frees a group of hostages who are about to be mowed down by Harlan and his men, he takes off into the hills with Chama. Given the participants, JOE KIDD should have been much better, as it is somewhat hamstrung by an Elmore Leonard script that seems bored with its characters. That said, Duvall and Eastwood are excellent, as is Bruce Surtees' camerawork.

Plot Synopsis:

When a violent struggle ensues between a group of Mexican-American peasants and a corrupt landowner who wants to dispossess them of their property, Joe Kidd, who himself owns a small plot of land, is drawn into the battle as the landowner hires him to kill the leader of the uprising. Kidd soon realizes the immorality of his mission, however, and he switches his allegiance to the other side. Now it's the landowner who's going to have to watch out....
