The Big Country Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: One of Hollywood's greatest directors teams with a cast of incredible screen legends for this bold, sweeping tale of a ship's captain who ventures west to find a hotbed of jealousy, hatred and dangerous rivalries. As the reluctant hero is thrust into the maelstrom, he must summon all of his resolve to save not only his own life, but also the life of the woman he loves. Four-time Academy Award(R) winner William Wyler directs this action-packed adventure that triumphs as "a work of art" (Motion Picture Herald). Starring Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, Jean Simmons, Chuck Connors and Burl Ives (in an Oscar(R)-winning performance), this magnificently entertaining epic will take your breath away with unbridled suspense, exhilarating excitement and explosive drama on a grand scale.

Review: The Big Country is an absolute western classic.  The all-star cast is headed up by the great Gregory Peck (Grapes of Wrath) and Charlton Heston.  Heston overacts, as usual, but it works in this one.  This film has a grand scale and goes outside the path of the average western to tell a tale of survival that is emotional and absolutely riveting.  This is the first time that you can get this one on blu-ray high-definition.  The film looks great and the color really ends up popping.  This one is a must have for any fan of vintage westerns.

Interest Range: Western, Classics
