Synopsis


The War Wagon
John Wayne and Kirk Douglas spend half of The War Wagon trying to knock one another off and the other half working shoulder to shoulder. Settling an old score with avaricious mine owner Bruce Cabot, Wayne plans to steal a $500,000 gold shipment from his enemy. Douglas, at first hired by Cabot to kill Wayne, goes along with the robbery scheme. Also in on the plan is Howard Keel, superbly cast as a world-weary, wisecracking Native American (it's the sort of part that nowadays would go to Graham Greene). The titular war wagon is the armor-plated, Gatling-gun fortified stagecoach wherein Cabot's gold is transported. Thus the stage is set for a slam-bang finale, and director Burt Kennedy isn't about to disappoint the viewers. Best bit: after Kirk and The Duke gun down Cabot's henchmen Bruce Dern and Chuck Roberson, Douglas quips "Mine hit the ground first"--whereupon Wayne replies "Mine was taller." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    The Blu-ray picture & sound quality is excellent. You can't go wrong with this movie which stars John Wayne & Kirk Douglas. John Wayne plays a man who had his land stolen and was then sent to prison. His land just happened to have a lot of gold on it. The gold is transported by the War Wagon, an armored stagecoach with a gatling gun. When Wayne gets out of prison he has a plan to steal the gold but first he has to round up four men to help him steal it. The action is fast and furious but the movie is fun and has some comedy moments. I highly recommend it.

    Pairing of Wayne and Douglas added depth and interest to this solid-troop of western actors. The cinematography captures the essence of the American West and the story-line is well-told and acted – it’s a great view!

    I got this for my dad for Christmas. It was the first gift he opened. The picture quality is unmatchable along with the ultra violet copy, makes down loading to the tablet outstanding!
