Love the Duke!!
First I have to say that I am a huge JW fan. In this film JW is his classic Kick A** self. There is some sentimental stuff in here, about the old man’s relationship with his grown sons. Basically it is good old John Wayne Action. When the bad guys get the drop on him, all you can think is “Big mistake” This film is set in the early 1900s. There is an interesting parallel between the passing of the baton from one generation to the next (Jake and his grown sons) and the passing of technology. We see new fangled weapons and a motor car. (Naturally Jake rejects these)
Finally: You got to love the idea of Big Jake owning a dog named ….. DOG.
Maybe my favorite John Wayne movie
Which isn’t to say it’s his best (it may not be better than TRUE GRIT and is nowhere near as moving as THE COWBOYS, just to name a couple) but it is a hell of a lot of fun. When he was a young man John Wayne once said he’d have to retire when he reached forty because after that you couldn’t play a believable hero. Well, here he is at 63, still kicking ass with the best of them! BIG JAKE has a sense of self-referential humor about it that I find irresistible (the “I thought you wuz dead?” running gag, for example). Written by the screenwriters of DIRTY HARRY, this movie always struck me as their attempt to send up the larger than life image of The Duke in the most affectionate possible way. Wayne’s introductory shot (and the line leading up to it) makes me laugh out loud every time I see it (it was cut from a TNT showing of the movie a few years ago, making me howl with such outrage that my kids cracked up!). The only thing I don’t like about this movie is the callousness of much of the violence. I know Richard Boone and his gang are being set up as the baddest of the baddies, but women and children being hacked to bits with a machete is a bit much. Still, not enough to ruin BIG JAKE for me. “Not hardly.”
