Critic Reviews for Firecreek
The Jimmy Stewart hero usually isn't very happy with his job. He doesn't go around sticking his neck out. He's no John Wayne type. But finally he gets pushed beyond the breaking point and Wayne hath no fury like a Stewart scorned.
A mediocre Western, elevated by the star power of Henry Fonda (as the villain) and Jimmy Stewart
Audience Reviews for Firecreek
Gritty western with a melancholy tone. Stewart and Fonda do good work as adversaries although Henry is a conflicted villain. He has some good scenes with Inger Stevens that humanize his character. Inger imparts a real sense of muted sorrow to her part but also a core of strength, a very subtle actress.
Decent if rather old-fashioned western, raised above meciocrity by the two heavyweight stars.
