The year is 1913, just one year short of World War 1. Disguised as U.S. soldiers, a gang rides into a Texas border town. Silently, they enter and rob the railroad company, but an ambush lies in wait. When the gang emerges, the company's hired gunmen open fire. Men, women, and children are caught in the crossfire. The gang escape to their hideout in the desert where they find that the loot they fought so hard is worthless. With the railroad company hard on their heels, the gang, lead by Pike, head for the apparent safety of the Mexican revolutionaries and representatives of the ruling Government. As a result of these separate meetings, Pike and his gang are forced to re-examine the principles that had, until then, ruled their lives.


I still remember going to the movies to see this... we came out amazed that when people were shot in this film they didnt just grab a shoulder and carry on but bits blew off and they died.

Sam Peckinpah certainly intended changing the face of westerns and this was no different. Probably dated by todays films and effects but in its day a great film ..... still worth less than the price of a pint imho :thumbsup:
