Critic Reviews for Showdown

My review might be a touch generous. Yet Seaton, Hudson, Martin and the whole film possess a sweetness that inspires generosity.

Showdown is a tired western. Everyone in it is tired. The only suspense in the film is watching a tired Dean Martin and a tired Rock Hudson getting on their horses. Sometimes you think they won't make it.

Routine western needing some more oats in its feedbag.

Audience Reviews for Showdown

Rock & Dean work well together in this amiable western with nice work from Susan Clark and a good supporting cast. Loses it way a little towards the end but still an enjoyable film with the two leads providing the necessary star power.
