Two outlaw brothers head for Mexico with one's gang and a Mexican hostage, followed by a posse.
Bandolero! peaks early, with a long, immensely satisfying opening half-hour in which cowpoke James Stewart saves his bank-robber brother (Dean Martin) from the hangman's noose... by strolling into town and masquerading as the hangman. As the brothers depart into Mexico, with a comely hostage (Raquel Welch) in tow, the action becomes more conventional. It's handsomely shot on eye-filling locations by outdoorsy veteran Andrew V. McLaglen (clever Jerry Goldsmith score, too). George Kennedy plays the lovelorn sheriff in pursuit, leading his half-hearted posse through bandito territory. Credibility suffers with Raquel's fabulous hair, which weathers kidnapping and life on the dusty trail with an unlikely sheen. Stewart and Martin, meanwhile, are too casual to allow the already-relaxed story to build up any real heat. For Western fans, the opening should make it worthwhile, even if it eventually becomes apparent why this one isn't considered a classic. --Robert Horton

But the times are passed, and a good portion of the population thinks Noah Beery was Kames Garner's dad, "Rocky" on "The Rockford Files", if they're even old enough to remember that TV series at all. But that was Noah Beery, Junior. His father was an actor in westerns.
So if yoou didn't know that, you'll probably enjoy this movie. And if you DID know that, you'll probably still enjoy this movie. Get yourself a box of Ju-Ju-Bes, pop yourself a big bowl of popcorn, topping it with REAL butter instead of that yellow crap they use at movie houses, and plop down on the sofa with your best girl. And it's OK for the kids to watch it with you, and even the dog!
