Critical ReceptionEdit

"A picture has got to be pretty lifeless for a colorful, resourceful actor like Warren Oates, the new Cogburn, to come across badly." Kevin Thomas journalist and author of Stone Heart

"Oates does a good job of filling Wayne's boots. Where Wayne swaggered, Oates ambles." -TV Guide

"Oates scales his interpretation down to human size although the actor's brand of orneriness is given scant freedom of expression." Earl Davis, The Hollywood Reporter
