2.5/4 

Another solid western from James Stewart and Anthony Mann that'll seem more than a little familiar to anyone who has seen Red River, but deals nicely with the usual themes of revenge and redemption.

Rating of
3/4 

Bend of the River is the second of the "psychological westerns" directed by Anthony Mann and starring Jimmy Stewart. It's an above-average western, as are all the other Mann-Stewart efforts that preceded it.
