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.

"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.

Elvis Presley's only movie that wasn't a drama or comedy with songs or a straight Hollywood Musical - the only Elvis song is the well-produced title song heard over the opening credits. As many folks have said, this one was an attempt to get Elvis in the Clint Eastwood mold and do something "different". It seems that the original plan to include exciting fight scenes (which Elvis actually excelled at!) and more traditional stuff was deemed politically incorrect at the time, so we have the star basically in a trance while the town he is supposed to protect gets constantly hit by cannon fire from his former friends. The storyline stays in neutral until the welcome "End". There are some interesting things from his post-"formula" era - unfortunately there is not one memorable scene in this film. (The Audience Bewilderment Factor [of 7] supplants the Embarrassment Factor).

This DVD should never have been released like this. The picture is really bad and the sound, it sounds like a record. Some places seem like the tracking is out of order and others you can't make out the pictures. It looks like the movie was taped off tv in wide screen format than it looks as though someone took a camera and put it in front of the tv screen and did a pan and scan version of it. There are lines (like that of a vcr recording) all the way through the movie.The sound drove me up the wall it was so bad. The reason I say it was recorded off tv is because the beginning and the end are cut and before the end theme is over there's a warner television distribution logo. Maybe I'm wrong but the quality just flat out sucks.

"Charro!" is a dull western that gives Elvis Presley virtually nothing to work with in terms of scripting and direction. However, there are a few noteworthy aspects. The neck-branding scene is perhaps the most sadistic moment in Elvis cinema -- it's rare to see the King endure such excruciating pain. In addition, his character doesn't break into song (a wise decision). There also is an intriguing sequence where Elvis is a solitary figure walking across the Arizona desert -- no rear projection or movie extras in sight. It's one of the few naturalistic moments in a Presley film. Overall, this is a misguided attempt to duplicate the success of Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns. Elvis deserved better.

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?
