Critic Reviews of "Shane"William Brogdon VarietyJuly 02, 2007
Wyoming's scenic splendors against which the story is filmed are breathtaking. Sunlight, the shadow of rain storms and the eerie lights of night play a realistic part in making the picture a visual treat.Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderJuly 02, 2007
Here, as too often in his career, Stevens is aiming to have the last word on a genre: everything aims for 'classic' status, and everything falters in a mire of artsiness and obtrusive technique.Geoff Andrew Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Stevens' classic Western, with its inflated reputation, now looks as if it were self-consciously intended as a landmark film right from the start.Bosley Crowther New York TimesMay 20, 2003
For Shane contains something more than beauty and the grandeur of the mountains and plains, drenched by the brilliant Western sunshine and the violent, torrential, black-browed rains...Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
There are intriguing mysteries in Shane, puzzles and challenges, not least in the title character and the way he is played by Alan Ladd.Alberto Abuín Blog de cineMarch 14, 2017
A film that continues to maintain its condition of unscathed classic, although it has its detractors. [Full review in Spanish]James Plath Family Home TheaterMarch 30, 2016
To a degree, Shane employs the good-guy/bad-guy stereotypes that characterize Westerns. But it's more complex than that.Manny Farber The NationSeptember 05, 2012
It is a movie that takes its own measured, deliberate time finding ways to increase your pleasure.Charles Cassady Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
"Come back, Shane!" Classic Western for the ages.Scott Nash Three Movie BuffsOctober 18, 2010
Western Poetry in Technicolor.Dan Jardine CinemaniaAugust 02, 2010
Despite being burdened with grand pretensions, George Steven's Shane stands securely as one of the most intelligent westerns of its era.Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.ComAugust 12, 2008
The direction is deliberate, but the attention to detail is impressive, and the perfromances of Jean Arthur, Alan Ladd, and Brandon De Wilde are so good and restrained that they overcome the social-mythical types they're playing.
