A great bloody western with its sympathies on the right side of the fence. A gang of older outlaws make one last great heist with the end of the west as they know it. Violent as hell, the opening scene features a posse slaughtering a marching band in a failed attempt to capture the wild bunch. While the bodies are still being collected, local kids reenact the fight in the street! Fucking great, and its just the opening 10 minutes. It changed my opinions of westerns.
