'The Wild Bunch' is a western generally remembered for it's violence and genre specific agenda. I can't relate much criticism for a film that achieves such a high level of fan service. I mean, seriously, this contains every hallmark turned up to almost eleven. A fun, thrilling, and immensely bloody gunslinger.

It probably took me a lot longer than necessary to watch this western. I think The Wild Bunch is a good movie for sure, but might fall just short of great. The main problem is that the characters just aren't fleshed out enough to connect to anyone. The action scenes are amazing, though, and the actors do a good job of balancing comedy and drama. Western fans should not pass it up.

When The Wild Bunch started with the bank robbery & shoot out scene, The 1st thing I thought is that this is going to be an awesome Western but as the movie went on I found myself losing interest & stopped caring after awhile.I really hoped that as good as the opening was I would add this movie as a favorite.I loved the way it started but I'm so disappointed the way it turned out

Now, I must admit, I haven't seen a lot of westerns, however, I had very high hopes for this one. But, I just couldn't get into it. I had a hard time caring for any of the characters. Now, that's not to say that this is a bad film, but, I don't think it quite earns the praise that is constatnly heaped up on it. Better westerns, Unforgiven (1992), No Country for Old Men, and one slightly below the radar, Winchester '73.

The Wild Bunch review

Relentless action, enticing score, lush settings and realistic outfits make it worth viewing. It has it's own flaws such as the lack of character development, iffy screenplay and plot direction. Has one of the most eciting openings for its genre but eventually dwindles towards the middle. The film revolves around Pike Bishop (William Holden), Dutch Engstrom (Ernest Borgnine), brothers Lyle (Warren Oates) and Tector Gorch (Ben Johnson), and Angel (Jaime Sánchez). No leads to enthusiastically root for, story not as clear and ending lacks impact compared to the roaring intro. Many westerns have been created with amazing results. It was surprising that such a highly regarded movie and included in many best films list. Overall, The Wild Bunch is an average western that is action packed b...

"The Wild Bunch" by Yojimbo

Sam Peckinpah's eulogy to the old west is regarded as something of a classic of the genre. One of the most striking things about this film is the total lack of a "good guy vs. bad guy" mentality, something Peckinpah made clear right from the opening scene when Holden's men arrive dressed as soldiers, seemingly about to be ambushed by outlaws. But everything is not as it seems. Holden and his gang are a bunch of outlaws and thieves but operate with loyalty and a code of honour. Robert Ryan, an ex-partner, heads a pack of bounty hunters hunting them down who act like the vultures picking through the trail of corpses they leave behind. Boasting not one, but two of the most spectacular shoot outs ever committed to celluloid, the final scenes redefine the word "bloodbath" and make a John Woo s...
