    "Just about every great western film includes John Wayne in it, and this 1956 film is a prime example of it. The Searchers is considered a masterpiece film and was a commercial hit when it came out. It takes place shortly after the civil war with a Confederate soldier who returns home."

    "How can you go wrong with a John Wayne movie? Good story and worth a spot on your movie shelf. It's one you'll want to pull out and watch again from time to time. "

    "John Ford made some great movies, but The Searchers is by far the best. If you like westerns (or even if you don't) you can't miss this movie. It has great performances by John Wayne and Natalie Wood, and the story is incredible. Wayne "searches" for his niece, who has been captured by Comanche Indians. Ford makes it about so much more than that, exploring deeper sides to each character and their actions. "

    "I am a huge fan of John Ford. I had to find what people considered to be the best movie he acted in. From researching this topic thoroughly, the best John Ford movie to me is The Searchers. "

    "John Wayne was always my dad's hero. Whenever I was a kid, he always made me watch The Searchers together. Now, looking back it's great to have on Blu-Ray. The movie is a great plot about one of America's most divided times. I wouldn't change anything about my purchase decision."

    "John Wayne is the best cowboy actor to have ever graced Hollywood. I really like this movie because he plays a hero as a veteran and also as a man intent on saving his niece. They don't make movies like this anymore."

    "John Wayne is probably the quintessential Western actor. It made many , many westerns and most of them are good or watchable at the very least. The Searchers is a great Western well worth your time."

    "if you like westerns, then I'm sure you know the movie, "The Searchers". It's probably one of John Wayne's best movies. the Duke is a Civil War veteran from Texas who will stop at nothing to find the men who murdered his family. It's a great movie."

    "This solution offers a movie starring the ultimate cowboy; John Wayne. Produced in the 1950's it is still watched today and had excellent reviews. "

    "I grew up watching a lot of old westerns, so it's great to be able to see The Searchers again. It's kind of cheesy and slow compared to modern tv. But I enjoy having it on in the background while I do chores around the house."

    "While this is a very good movie, I don't think anyone can dispute that....but I am not a large fan of Westerns. I feel like under "best movies of all time" should transcend their genre, but this at the end of the day, feels like a Western to me, and only that."

    "I thought The Searchers was a good movie, but it is not one of the greatest. The plot is simple and easy to follow, but it wasn't a movie that really held my attention consecutively. If you like western movies, however, this is a great product."

    "I found this movie to be boring and lacking believable action. I am not a big fan of westerns and definitely think that this is not one of the best movies of all time, even if it does star John Wayne."

    "John Wayne is a legendary actor for a reason. This movie, The Searchers, is hands down one of the best films of the Western genre of all time. "

    "The Searches is definitely one of the best movies of all time with one of the best actors of all time (John Wayne) in the best genre of all time (Westerns). You definitely will not be disappointed if you pick up this classic revenge flick!"
