Warlock is a rather intriguing deconstruction of the standard western story of the professional "hero" coming into town and saving the day. As it proposes the idea of, what really happens if they don't leave, and just how honorable is a man who kills for a living. These are examined in an interesting fashion, bolstered by fine performance from Richard Widmark, Anthony Quinn and Henry Fonda. It seems like there is potential for perhaps an even greater film with the given material, but as it is it remains a good one.
