    Warlock offers us a mean-spirited, mercenary Henry Fonda and an honest, peaceloving Richard Widmark. A Wyatt Earp-like frontier marshal, Fonda agrees to protect the small town of Warlock from an outlaw gang, but only if he's permitted to plunder the town's cash reserve. Widmark, the town deputy, is a reformed outlaw whose willingness to fend off the invading criminals is motivated by his fondness for his new neighbors. Looming large in the proceedings is Anthony Quinn as the glory-grabbing Fonda's sidekick. Adapted by Robert Alan Aurthur from a novel by Oakley Hall, Warlock is a good example of the "thinking man's westerns" prevalent in the late 1950s-early 1960s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Stilted, tired Western

      Improbable plot and stilted acting ruin this one for us. To put it simply, time is precious, and there are far better Westerns to watch, enjoy and own. Start with The Searchers, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Stars in My Crown. Go online and browse other "Best of" lists, and only bother with the ones with 80 percent or higher favorable ratings, unless a friend you trust recommends one to you. This one you can skip.
