Comanche

Comanche ★★½

Decent if not spectacular indie western. Well made with good Durango, Old Mexico, location work captured in fine style by Cinemascope lenses and an appealing lead in Dana Andrews who heads seemingly a cast of thousands of extras.

The finale where a band of renegade Comanche's are surrounded in a canyon by the cavalry and the main Comanche forces is beautifully done and really quite eerie.

The film is let down somewhat by an appalling ballad which intermittently disrupts the action and poor vhs quality visuals on the 101 Films dvd i watched.
