Critic Reviews for Gun Fury

All Critics (4)

A traditional but worthy Western.

October 3, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A perfectly serviceable western adventure, but it never rises above the level of a middle of the road shoot-em-up that feels decidedly mediocre.

June 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Interesting Western with themes of non-violence.

July 17, 2009 | Full Review…

The terrible ending, where the Rock Hudson character suddenly acts out of character, almost wrecks this straight-forward Western actioner.

Audience Reviews for Gun Fury

Beautiful looking western in dazzling Technicolor is otherwise an ordinary affair but does have Rock Hudson and Donna Reed both on the cusp of bigger things. Donna made From Here to Eternity the same year as this and Rock would break out of the B's the next year with Magnificient Obsession, This film does have a good pace and a hissable villian in Phil Carey plus an early peek at Lee Marvin. For western fans or admirerers of the stars this will be an enjoyable view.

Not a good movie and the 3-D doesn't even save it. Raoul Walsh is a great director, but his one eye may have hampered him on 3-D. The story is formulaic and by the end your just bored. Rock and Reed are engaged, they get robbed,she gets stolen and he is left for dead, and then he tries to get her back, bored yet? This film was lost before they added 3-D effects, skip it.
