Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The Wild Bunch is one of the great defining moments of modern movies.

Orlando Sentinel - Jay Boyar
It is certainly one of the best westerns ever made, and the best film of any kind to come out in 1969.

Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
The hard action, bracing wit and mournful grace of Peckinpah’s cowboy classic shames every new movie around. It’s a towering achievement that grows more riveting and resonant with the years.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Not only does The Wild Bunch illustrate Peckinpah's mastery of his medium, but it presents a story that is effective on nearly every level: the emotional, the visual, and the visceral.

San Francisco Chronicle - Peter Stack
Maybe the best shoot-'em-up ever made, the one that turned meanness into a haunting pictorial poetry and summed up the corruption of guilt, old age and death in the American fantasy of the Old West.

The Wild Bunch (1969)



Aging outlaw, Pike Bishop prepares to retire after one final robbery. Joined by his gang, Dutch Engstrom and brothers Lyle and Tector Gorch, Bishop discovers the heist is a setup orchestrated in part by a former partner, Deke Thornton. As the remaining gang takes refuge in Mexican territory, Thornton trails them—resulting in fierce gunfights with plenty of casualties.
