Critic Reviews for Lone Star

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Nearly every turn of the story can be guessed well in advance, and the other turns are too fantastic to be believable.

The mark of the formula is on Lone Star all right, but it's a good formula for Gable and Director Sherman has made it a slick and fast-moving movie.
