    This being John Wayne's final film gives it an extra dimension of being about John as well as the character. I wonder if he deliberately chose this film to be his last when he would have known his own life was drawing to a close. There's even a mini homage to him at the start of the film. 5 years 10 months ago

    It feels sort of cold at some points but it's a fitting tribute to the Duke. The opening intro tries to crank up the nostalgia and I think succeeds especially if you have seen a bunch of his other movies (more so if you know all the ones shown.) The ending feels a little anti-climatic but I think only because we are so used to massive dramatic finishes from characters/actors. It's subdued and quiet with a quick nod from Wayne as if to say "it's time for me to go now, it's been fun." 1 year 4 months ago

    Not John Wayne's best but certainly his most intimate and personal. Goodbye, Duke. Thanks for the memories. 4 years 6 months ago
