No wonder Elvis took "Prescription Medication" making dreadful movies like this. It's so awful words cannot describe. It looks cheap, nasty, badly acted, badly directed, badly edited with no story. It's just awful.
What on earth was going on in his and the Colonel's heads thinking that fans would put up with watching this crap at the movies when you had the real deal in Clint Eastwood. Even at the time it was made, Westerns were going out of fashion.
This was, thank God, one of the last movies he made. I'm a big Elvis Fan but could not bear to watch it twice.
The DVD is bad quality, no picture clean up, no extras, nothing. What's the point?

The hits, the beats ( don't the critic) were in the reality.
Elvis was very beaten in this movie ( and isn't about the critics).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Elvis Movie May 6 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This was one of the best Elvis movies ever made! It is alot of fun for the whole family. It will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. If you like this movie also try Flaming Star! It is a very heart touching story showing the hard ships of Native Americans and Settlers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not your normal Elvis picture, that's for sure. Nov. 12 2002
By Josh P.
Format:VHS Tape
"Charro!" is an okay film. Elvis plays a reformed outlaw who decides to go straight. But his former gang won't let him. They put an ugly scar on his neck that marks him as a killer. He then takes on his former gang members to try to make them return a stolen Mexican war cannon. All they do with it is frightenthe townspeople. Now, the bad-gone-good Elvis can save the people and stop the gang in its tracks. If you see, and don't enjoy it because there's a lot of violence, I don't know what to say. Very far from "Loving You", that's for sure.

Elvis' last few movies seem to be among the better of the lot, and "Charro" is one of them. An obvious attempt to cash in on the "spaghetti western" phenomenon of the late 60's, "Charro" isn't half bad. I get the feeling the original storyline was more mature and more violent, but was watered down to play to Elvis' "family-friendly" audience. Also, it feels as though some scenes were edited out that might have helped the story progress, but were sacrificed either by an inept editor or an attempt to keep the film G-rated. I wager that had the film kept that harder edge, it would have rivaled "Flaming Star" as Elvis' best western film. As it is, though, it's still a valiant effort by a man who so dearly wanted to be taken seriously as an actor but was never given a chance because of a manager who was more concerned with dollar signs than the ambitions of his client. *A NOTE TO THOSE CONCERNED WITH FILM QUALITY* My copy of "Charro" was put out by Warner Bros. and is arguably the best version available, although the "pan & scan" is painfully obvious sometimes. I have seen versions of "Charro" put out by other video companies and they are horrible! If possible, get the Warner Bros. release and no other.

3.0 out of 5 stars E for Effort March 16 2002
Format:VHS Tape
"Charro!" is a better movie than they give it credit for. OK, so it might be similar to a Clint Eastwood "spaghetti" western, but so what? Of all the things to be similar to, that is not among the worst things to be. At least they tried to have a good composer for the score, and put Elvis in a different setting than at the beach, or on the race track, or being a guy who works at a gas station or is a truck driver or flips burgers(or whatever) and gets discovered and becomes a singing success, like he usually did. And not is it just simply in a different setting, it wasn't a Western musical either, which they could have easily done. It was a seriously done movie and was well-acted. I think that's why Elvis wasn't in more serious, non-musicals all through his movie career, because of what critics would say about Elvis' image being "changed, to no particular effect" and then less Elvis fans would come to see the movie. That's why they didn't make more movies like "Flaming Star" and "Wild In The Country", which are now considered among Elvis' best, because they didn't make as much money as "GI Blues" before them(a musical). And the Colonel was all about making money, not necessarily quality movies or songs that Elvis believed in or enjoyed singing. So please think twice before you criticize "Charro!". At least they gave it an honest effort.
