Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 11/25/1999
"...Wonderful, a deeply felt elegy to the passing of the Old West surely made in response to the confusion and bitterness of the Vietnam era....The film is rich in visual textures..."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/20/2006
"Peckinpah's most poetic work, providing a languid rhythm for Billy's insouciant fatalism."
Ultimate DVD - 07/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]mportant....It's certainly a brutal piece, and not the most comfortable of movies."

Description by OLDIES.com:

They are fast friends and worse foes. One is Billy the Kid (Kris Kristofferson), a law unto himself. The other is the law: Sheriff Pat Garrett (James Coburn), who once rode with Billy.

Set to a bristling score by Bob Dylan (who also plays Billy?s sidekick Alias) and with a Who?s Who of iconic Western players, Sam Peckinpah?s saga of one of the West?s great legends is now restored to its intended glory. For the first time since it left the cutting room, the film has the balance of action and character development Peckinpah wanted, a mix of fury and elegy based on the director?s notes and the insights of his colleagues. The difference is profound, as different as an untouched target and a bull?s-eye.

Product Description:

An ex-crony of Billy the Kid is forced to attempt the arrest of the infamous outlaw. His challenge results in a deadly confrontation.

Plot Synopsis:

The story of western legend Pat Garrett, once was an outlaw but now a lawman... and out to capture his old friend and gunslinger, now nemesis, Billy the Kid.
