HASH(0xa6af6430) out of 5 stars Not One of Ford's Best June 28 2005
By Terence Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Santee was Glenn Ford's last starring role in a major motion picture Western, and it is better to remember after watching it that he will always be known as one of the all-time great Western stars.

In Santee, Ford plays a hardbitten bounty hunter who kills the father of a young boy, who Santee takes home to raise as his own. You know that the boy, played by Michael Burns, wants to kill the man who killed his father, and you know that sooner or later, the boy will come to respect, and maybe even love Santee. You don't expect the boy to forgive so quickly. You also know that the boy will eventually have to help Santee round up some outlaws, but the usual excitement and enjoyment just doesn't payoff, even with an ending that is more poignant, and more interesting than a lot of older or modern westerns.

For Ford's sake, you wish that the cliches weren't so overwhelming. Ford does what he can with the role, which is more than a lot of other actors could, but Santee ends up being a pale imitation of many of Ford's other roles.

By Steven Hellerstedt - Published on Amazon.com

Veteran actor Glenn Ford is bounty hunter in the 1973 movie SANTEE. After killing the leader of an outlaw gang Santee takes in the man's son, Jody, who vows to kill Santee the first chance he gets.

The first act begins with a delightful opening sequence, a little reminiscent of the `super posse' in BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID. Santee is seen from a distance and commented upon - who IS this guy, is he as good as they say he is, etc. It turns out he is indeed that good, and then some. Santee is tough and terse and the bad guy is one wrong flinch away from death.

The movie falls apart spectacularly in the second act. Santee, for reasons unknown, guilt or distrust or whatever, keeps the kid close to him and semi-adopts him. At least he gets the kid to agree not to do `it' at the ranch. Domesticity can drive a stake through the toughest of action movies, and as soon as Santee and Jody arrive home this movie loses whatever chance it had. For reasons never adequately explained, or even apparently noticed by director Gary Nelson, Jody forgives and forgets and becomes the son they never.... The rest of the film is a pastiche of half-baked, lesser tropes. The education of a gunfighter. Strapping them on one last time. This movie lost me when it asked me to buy that an afternoon rounding up mustangs with Jay Silverheels would be enough to forget killing the man who shot your father.

Old music fans might get a kick out of hearing The Raiders with Paul Revere sing the original theme "Jody" somewhere at the tag end of act one and reprise it at the end of the movie.

Not many movies begin with as much promise as SANTEE, fewer yet disappoint so thoroughly.

HASH(0xa6af676c) out of 5 stars Ok for its time March 7 2014
By Marietta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Interesting plot since its main character (Glen Ford) is a good bounty hunter, feared by the bad guys and lauded by the sheriff. A bit graphic for my taste - bloody shoot out scenes. This was probably the beginning of having scenes depicting the reality of gun capabilities which in the earlier decade was not depicted in such a manner, plus it is in color. Sometimes the story seemed to jump leaving the viewer to wonder how certain things came about - made me wonder if the editors edited too much. Though the viewer knows he will get the bad guy who killed his son, the ending was sad in that one of the main characters die. As a Capricorn and romantic, I like happy endings and this ending was not although interestingly done. If you like westerns with shoot outs and have an hour or so to be entertained with some beautiful footage of the countryside, watch it, but don't expect more than it can give.

HASH(0xa65f009c) out of 5 stars Not that bad May 23 2010
By Markku Ojanen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I have seen Santee in the movie theatre and later on videotape. Though the other reviews are excellent, I understand that their disappointment reflects the very high level of Glenn Ford Westerns. I just went through the list which amazes me. This may me the worst Glenn Ford Western, but it is still better than many films that in Amazon pages get five stars. Ford is good here like always. The story may have some holes, but this is still an O.K. western.

HASH(0xa65f04a4) out of 5 stars Santee - A Low Budget Production April 20 2016
By Dr. Bubba hisownself - Published on Amazon.com

Santee promised to be an interesting early '70's western with several big name stars in key roles, but it turned out to be a very cheesy film. It's indicative of its era but the dialog and storyline were a level below "B-grade." It struck me that this might have been one of Glenn Ford's last efforts, and he took the part because he needed the money. Don't know that for certain, just speculating. I managed to watch the entire film and while it was pretty lame it didn't rise to the level of a Plan 9 From Outer Space kind of cult bad. There are tons of other westerns that are far, far better, and unless you're specifically looking for something pretty lame to watch, you'd do better than Santee. As always, YMMV.
