Editorial Reviews

This is one of the best action movies ever made and now available in a cleaned-up Director's Cut widescreen print restoring crucial previously edited parts of the story. See THE WILD BUNCH in its original pristine format the way it was intended to be seen. No cavalry ever rode in with more epochal impact than the Wild Bunch in the legendary opening scene. Their steel-eyed leader, Pike (William Holden), and his robbers in stolen army uniforms help an old lady across the street, and then spark a massacre led by Pike's old crony Thornton (Robert Ryan), sprung from jail to hunt down his old gang. In just a few minutes, Sam Peckinpah sets the scene--a dusty Texas town in 1913--sketches a dozen vividly individualized characters, and choreographs one of the most realistic, influential, brilliantly photographed shootouts under the pitiless sun. The cast is superb (even Ernest Borgnine!), the dialog crackling, the bitterly ambiguous moral of the story hard-earned. It's the deeper, dark flip side to 1969's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Sam Peckinpah's 'The Wild Bunch' is a masterpiece western, if not the best ever made, then certainly by many opinions, very close to the top of its genre.
