This review is from: Shootist, the 76 (VHS Tape)Somber, depressing, and ultimately stupid. The movie that never should have been made. It's painful to see a geriatric John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart dodder around in a genre they helped to define. Combined with Ron Howard's less than stellar reprisal of Opie Taylor make for a very forgettable film..."Oh Mawwww, I just love that old man." See, told you it was stupid.
And I'm sorry people, but as a 70Something gunfighter, the Duke may have been more believable playing the role of an NFL quarterback.
If this hadn't been John Wayne's last movie it would have been forgotten long ago. A monument to the whimpey sentimentality of today's socially engineered masses. I love John Wayne, but this movie is one of his worst. 2 spurs.
