Mateo: "I'm going to kill Chuy Medina."
Verified purchase
Taut, deliberately paced, beautifully shot, splendidly acted, The Appaloosa is one of my all-time favorite westerns. Low-key Brando performance is a brooding wonder, so that when his Mateo finally explodes to violence following the kindly Ramos's (Frank Silvera) death, the impact is intense and unforgettable. Then, when Trini (Anjanette Comer) asks if he's going back across the border to reclaim his magnificent spotted horse, Mateo wearily responds, "No, I'm not going back for the horse. I'm going to kill Chuy." It's as if this tired former buffalo hunter has resigned himself to do something he'd never intended to do again. Brando's stellar performance is matched (in a 180 degree opposite way) by John Saxon's Chuy; he chews the scenery like there's no tomorrow. The deliberate pace puts some people off, I know. They would likely say plodding pace; I totally disagree with that. The director's (Sidney J. Furie) pacing choice allows the story to unfold in a simple, natural way. And if you can get behind that directorial option, the rewards are many. Highly recommended.

Be Careful Who You Watch
Verified purchase
Sure, Marlon Brando stars in this revisionist western, but there is a reason John Saxon won the Golden Globe Award for Acting that year, and Anjanette Comer turns in a strong performance as his woman; as Saxon says, "No one can take away the woman of Chooey Medina." Of course, the Brando character is tasked with that very effort, and Chuy's pistoleros, while they certainly back him up, are not up to the task. This film revolves around a very limited set of characters: Brando, Chuy, his woman, the goat-herder who helps Brando, and Brando's adopted brother. Still, the pistoleros are effectively stupid and cruel as they mustt be to work for Chuy. This is Saxon's movie from start to finish.

Old Western Buff
Verified purchase
This old western movie was very hard to obtain (part of a box set) until NOW. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie; had seen it whenever it came on TCM; and would recommend the movie to anyone interested in a good, low budgeted, hard to obtain till now, et al. The movie stars Marlon Brando whose Appaloosa is stolen by some Mexican bad guys whose leader is played by John Saxton...of course, Marlon travels down in Mexico to re-claim his horse and along the way meets a beautiful women, fights the bad guys which makes for a very entertaining movie. I am happy that the movie finally came out as a single on DVD and my copy was perfect!

Familiar faces all around in this film
Verified purchase
Not one of Brando's best, but it is worth a look. The novel, now out of print, was much better and nothing like the storyline of this film. John Saxon was in top form as the antagonist and there are a great many familiar Mexican actors who appear as back-up to the story.
