Hondo is a simple movie, but it has a lot to offer the viewer. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. But not with this one :). The term 'Best movie' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of people like as the best. To me the following can be regarded as some of the greatest movie ever made. Anyway, Drama may boast of one of the biggest numbers of good movies. Varied dialogues are the quintessence of this image, they inspire the viewer. It doesn't happen often, but after watching Hondo, I was moved inside. It's a movie for everyone, I'm sure you'll like it after watching.... Show more
