| Decent western
The Last Sunset is an interesting western that is more story driven than many earlier westerns. A fugitive and a lawman chasing him join a cattle drive and take an interest in a woman and her daughter.

Although a bit too plodding in places, there are enough surprises throughout the film to make this a less predictable film than many of it's contemporaries. It all builds towards a surprising and welcome ending.

Kirk Douglas is at his captivating best as the anti-hero. He easily outshines Rock Hudson but to be fair his character is far more interesting. Good support is provided by Dorothy Malone and I thought Carol Lynley did a good job as the daughter.

With a more energetic script this really could have been a great western and it's a shame that despite the great final scenes, it is merely above average. Saying that it's still worth watching for fans of the western genre.
