Product Description

Amazon.ca

This is not one of the Duke's classics, but a diverting attempt nonetheless. Everyone seems to think that Jacob McCandles is six-feet under ("I thought you was dead" is a running line throughout), so some bad men kidnap his grandson. They want a piece of the family fortune and will kill to get it. Patrick Wayne, the Duke's own son, plays one of Big Jake's kids, and together they start out after the boy's abductors. Richard Boone makes a worthy adversary to Jake's larger than life figure, and the final confrontation between the two contains some great gritted-teeth dialogue. Maureen O'Hara is barely in the feature, sharing the same fate as Bobby Vinton as the boy's father. He seems to be onscreen just to get shot. --Keith Simanton

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars John Wayne at his best Sept. 26 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think this is the best of John Wayne's westerns even considering The Shootist and True Grit. Action and all the humour? "Not hardly"

5.0 out of 5 stars John, still the tough guy. April 4 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Brilliant script, John having to help his two sons grow up quickly to find and get their (yes, Maureen is back) grandson, whom John was not aware of. John as usual was away for some years. The introduction of vehicles and a motor cycle are introduced for the journey but the kidnappers are waiting. John's dog who is "Dog" is great. New rifles and gas operated guns come out and shock everyone. All in all one of the Dukes best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Jake Review Feb. 16 2012
By Brian
Format:DVD
Both the wife and I are John Wayne fans. I think I've seen them all. This is a typical John Wayne movie. The acting is good, and the story line is the usual John Wayne-wins-bad guys-lose movie. Enjoyed it.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Big Jake" is one of my favorite John Wayne movies, which is not to claim that it is a classic film. This film is directed by George Sherman, who first began doing Westerns back in the late 1930s, although Wayne is known to have directed some scenes as well. In retrospect I would argue that this 1971 film is the first of a trio of film that Wayne made at the end of his career reflecting the passing of the Western. The other two would be Wayne's next film, "The Cowboys," and obviously his final film, "The Shootist." Of that trio "Big Jake" is clearly the most fun and my biggest complaint about this film is that when it is shown on television they almost always have the first commercial break at the absolute worst moment.
The film begins with a raid on the McCandles Ranch where Little Jake McCandles (Ethan Wayne, the Duke's youngest son, named for the character he played in "The Searchers") is kidnapped by a gang of cutthroats led by John Fain (Richard Boone). Fain demands a ransom to be delivered across the border in Mexico. The Texas Rangers are willing to do it, but Martha McCandles (Maureen O'Hara), the boy's grandmother, announces that this is a disagreeable task and needs to be done by a disagreeable man. At this point the came cuts to a close up of John Wayne peering down the barrel of a rifle. It is a great introduction to Wayne's character in the film and a fitting counterpart to the moment in "Stagecoach" when we first see the Ringo Kid and his Winchester.

4.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF WAYNE'S FINAL WESTERNS Jan. 29 2004
Format:DVD
Big Jake was one of John Wayne's last westerns. He would go on ot make a couple of "Dirty Harry" type cop movies. Big Jake is notable for the final pairing between Wayne, and long-time co-star Maureen O'Hara. These two were always great chemistry and although their scenes together in this film are very few, you can see that they still have it.
It is 1909, the old West is quickly passing away, there are oil derricks all over the Texas horizon. The Duke plays "Jacob McCandles", a man exiled from his home "spread" for eighteen years. His estranged wife, played by O'Hara, sends him an urgent message: their little grandson has been kidnapped, come home, pronto!
The Duke arrives riding his ol' horse and carrying his familiar Colt 45. His sons (played by real life son Patrick and Chris Mitchum, and Bobby Vinton!) do not know him, except by reputation. Two of them accompany him on his man hunt. Duke is carrying one million dollars ransom money aboard an old mule. The sheriff and Texas rangers want to join the posse, but Big Jake demurs, so they set out in their newfangled automobiles to parallel his track and meet up with him later. Meet up they do, but the cars are not as durable as Duke's horse and he leaves them stranded to walk home. Also, the younger son, a "gadget freak", rides an early motorcycle, carries an automatic pistol, and a scoped rifle.
Duke and his sons are accompanied by one of the most savvy Indian scouts ever seen on the silver screen, "Sam Sharpnose", well portrayed by Bruce Cabot.
Led by lead villain Richard Boone, there are nine bandits to four pursuers... who will win in the inevitable confrontation?
