REVIEWS:





"Sam Peckinpah's 'The Wild Bunch'...is very beautiful and
the first truly interesting American-made Western in years. It's also
so full of violence—of an intensity that can hardly be supported by
the story—that it's going to prompt a lot of people who do not know
the real effect of movie violence...to write automatic condemnations
of it. .... Borrowing a device from 'Bonnie and Clyde', Peckinpah
suddenly reduces the camera speed to slow motion, which at first
heightens the horror of the mindless slaughter, and then—and this
is what really carries horror—makes it beautiful, almost
abstract, and finally into terrible parody."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; June 26, 1969

ROGER EBERT'S 2002 REVIEW:



"['The Wild Bunch'] is a very good Western with very good
performances, and several well-directed scenes of violence
during which we can come to terms with whatever
needs we carry in our hearts."

-- Roger Ebert; August 3, 1969
