Diet Rio Bravo. The actors' play directly to their personas, and the story is as straightforward as they come - given Hawks' mastery of set pieces, there's hardly any mess in the experience. (Except for that one gust of racism that's so strong and unexpected it nearly blew me over.)

If you've ever seen a western before, not much will surprise you about El Dorado. It's the virtuous vs the greedy and corrupt. It did have quite a bit more humor than I expected, particularly around the character Mississippi, although a particular impression in the movie was rather terrible. It's a fun and humorous western that I enjoyed quite a bit. The ending felt a little incomplete though.

Very unremarkable story drenched in well worn western conventions but Hawks makes it work with economic storytelling, efficient direction & some minimally subversive touches thrown in. Lots of fun little details and solidly crafted scenes. Pace & characterization work for it as well and it's consistently entertaining although doesn't leave a really strong impression in the end. Expectably macho-romantic and racist but pays partial mind to the self-destructive qualities of at least one of those.

It's the characters and their details that drove my interest. The plot itself is quite thin but smaller elements make this captivating and easy to watch.

Eerily similar to Rio Bravo, El Dorado is an assuredly handsomely made film. The story is familiar, but the characters engage to make a thoroughly enjoyable film. Robert Mitchum's sad eyes and Eeyore-like face sell the has-been drunk sheriff well, while Wayne does his best John Wayne impression (surprise surprise). A few things date the film (Caan's ridiculously racist impression of Chinese man) but this is a well-above average Western.

I think this would be a pretty good movie if it weren't basically an inferior reproduction of Rio Bravo. I can't get past that.

About 90% of this is the same movie as Rio Bravo, but since that is one of the most entertaining movies of all time I really don't mind Hawks & Duke giving it another go-around. Also, substituting Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson with Bob Mitchum and Jimmy Caan doesn't hurt it one bit. In the end it can't quite live up to it's magnificent predecessor but it has a few interesting twists of it's own (especially in the beginning) and the cast's chemistry make it tremendous fun.

It's not quite as good as Rio Bravo but it's close. When you basically remake that movie and have the same director and lead, it's basically guaranteed to be good. It's James Caan's first significant role and he has one of the all time great racist scenes, it's a shame no one ever hired him to play Chinese after that gripping portrayal. Mitchum accurately depicts how annoying and pathetic alcoholics are, the guy had a really interesting career.

How is it possible that no one has mentioned James Caan's incredibly racist Chinese impression? Ah well, sign o' the times, I guess. That was pretty much the highlight of the film, being your standard solid and enjoyable John Wayne western.

Embarrassing rehash of Rio Bravo. Wayne's early encounter with a ranch family feels like the setup for a much better and smarter film than this one.

It doesn't build up to the excellent payoff that Rio Bravo has, but it's a damn good western otherwise. James Caan is great in an early role and there's something to be said about a movie that ends with two of Hollywood's toughest stars hobbling away on crutches.
