Reviews


80
Time Out - Unnamed
Like Ford's The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, it both records and condemns the passage of time and the advent of progress; and there is a sombre, mournful quality which places the film very high up in the league of great Westerns.
75
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
The film is visually stunning, and Peckinpah makes great use of his Durango, Mexico, locations.
67
The A.V. Club - Noel Murray
A dry, dour film where the moments of poetic Americana barely cohere.
50
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The movie fails to work up much excitement, and the title song by Bob Dylan is quite simply awful.
50
The New York Times - Vincent Canby
Pat Garrett and Billy the kid suggest either that he (Peckinpah) has begun to take talk about his genius too seriously (it can happen to the best) or that he has fallen in with bad company.
