Movie Info

James Stewart and Dean Martin are atypically cast as outlaws in Bandolero! The film begins as Dee Bishop (Martin) and his gang are about to be hanged. The Scripture-spouting executioner turns out to be Dee's brother Mace (Stewart), who helps the desperadoes escape. They are pursued by a sheriff (George Kennedy), whose lady friend (Raquel Welch) has the hots for Dee. The brothers try to go straight, but before they can make up their mind they find themselves surrounded by Mexican bandidos and are forced to team up with the sheriff to fight them off. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Bandolero

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Bandolero! is chiefly distinguished by James Stewart's wry scenes as a phony hangman.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Buoyed by a strong cast and carried by an interesting mix of genre sensibilities, it's a film that may not have much lasting value but is fun nonetheless.

August 22, 2004 | Rating: 75/100

One of those movies you can't remember if you've seen until well into its first hour.

June 20, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An unpretentious and spirited, but uneven Western.

Audience Reviews for Bandolero

Decent western, actually has the feel of a 50's western more than one made in the late 60's, in a good way. It's a bit of a stretch to accept Jimmy and Dean as brothers but it doesn't hurt the overall film. Briskly directed and with a good cast of reliable supporting performers.
