The Undefeated (1969)

the undefeated“Trouble? Well, let’s see… We got Maximilian on one hand and Juarez on the other, and bandits in between. And on top of that, we’re Americans in Mexico taking a cavvy of horses to a very unpopular government. Why should we expect trouble? ” – Col. John Henry Thomas

Number of Times Seen – 1 (16 Jul 2014)

Brief Synopsis – Not long after the end of the Civil War, two opposing Colonels join forces to get to Mexico.

My Take on it – I am always amazed at the fact that many John Wayne movies land on opposite ends of the quality scale; excellent or mediocre.

This movie fits on the side of mediocrity because it just isn’t an interesting story at all.

There are a few good shoot out scenes but the sub plots of romance and corrupt government officials just dragged out the story.

If some of the subplots would have been excised, the movie would have been much tighter and possibly more interesting.

Bottom Line – Very mediocre John Wayne movie. Story isnt so interesting and there are too many pointless scenes that could have made it tighter if they woulda been cut.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
