CGiii Comment

Brando's one and only foray in the director's chair......it's only included here because of him.

From the opening shot.....this is Brando by Brando - there are many scenes that linger on the Brando pout....courtesy of Brando - that Hollywood ego has been allowed to run amok.

The supporting cast are weak - especially the women......the material that they were given doesn't exactly help....ridiculously submissive.

The editing is terrible. A story that could have been told with, at least, 40 minutes cut out.....without doing any damage to the narrative.

It ends with the most boring and shortest shoot-out ever seen.
