Reviews

Chicago Reader - Dave Kehr
It's a very funny, very moving work, graced by the cinema's cleanest, most classical style.

Time Out - Unnamed
It's a witty, exciting and deeply moving masterpiece.

Chicago Tribune - Michael Wilmington
El Dorado is essentially a darker remake of Rio Bravo, with Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Hunnicutt and James Caan as the now archetypal quartet. But, though the situation is the same, the mood is crisper, tenser, with a heightened sense of pain, loss and death underlying the humor and action.

Variety - Unnamed
An excellent oater drama, laced with adroit comedy and action relief, and set off by strong casting, superior direction and solid production.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
El Dorado is a tightly directed, humorous, altogether successful Western, turned out almost effortlessly, it would seem, by three old pros: John Wayne, Robert Mitchum and director Howard Hawks.
