Editorial Reviews

GONE TO TEXAS
Sam Elliott is Texas Revolutionary Sam Houston in this sweeping epic of warring nations, patriotic pride, and the adventure and danger of the untamed West. After resigning as Tennessee Governor amid scandal and disgrace, Houston lived among the Cherokee before learning that war was inevitable for Texas to become an independent state. An American hero of the West, Sam Houston led the fight for Texas' independence-—this is the story of a courageous man and, in the name of freedom, the battle he waged for a million acres of land.

BLUE RIVER
Based on the novel by Ethan Canin, Blue River depicts the powerful events that unfold in a small Wisconsin town, driving two teenage brothers apart. The story begins when Lawrence Sellers (Jerry O'Connell), a homeless drifter, unexpectedly shows up at the home of his brother Edward (Neal McDonough), a successful doctor, and the two are forced to travel back to their youth and remember the deadly circumstances of their breach. Co-Starring Sam Elliott.

I like just about anything Sam Elliot is in, but his westerns are all one of a kind. He never leaves you wanting. His performances are all hard hitting and his persona seems to have been made for western movies. Even in the tired old Gone to Texas screen play rewrites He still keeps you on the edge of your seat.

We ordered this DVD for the Gone to Texas video and it was very good. Blue River was an extra for us. It too was very good, but only a cameo showcase for Sam Elliott. Both were worth the purchase if you are a Sam Elliott fan.

I bought this because Sam Elliott was in both features, but is only a guest appearance in Blue River so have not yet watched this.
Gone to Texas however gave me a wider understanding of Houston's life and career so will lead to wider reading and research. I was however distracted by poor make up, particularly beards and sideburns of the characters as these were easily identified as false in fact in some sideburns the stitching was visible at the edges.

Another pleasant surprise was Katherine Ross as an Alamo survivor, along with Travis's slave sent to warn Houston and his army of what would befall them should Santa Anna capture them.

Enjoyed this western Sam Elliott is a very good actor plenty of action well worth watching. Blue River was not so good thought it may have been a western but turned out to be more modern action movie.

As a Sam Elliot fan I enjoyed Gone to Texas and Blue River. I thought because of the subject matter that they would be boring but was pleasantly surprised with Sam's performance. If you have not seen Sam Elliot in Western Movies before and like these, you might try Conager, The Sacketts and The Shadow Riders with Ben Johnson, Glenn Ford, Tom Selleck, Katharine Ross, Barry Corbin and more. They have a lot more action and are based on Western Writer Louis L'Amour's books.

Pathetic. Trashed it after watching both part way. I love Sam Elliott's character and most of his movies, but these two were sorry, and they didn't even make it to the 1/2 way mark before they got ejected. Low budget, sorry script. No good character and no morals was my main issue. I can watch new trash any day of the week by just turning on the tube. Was looking for something better.
