The Wild Bunch

Top 10 Westerns

In the Wild Bunch, an aging group of outlaws searches for their last big score before they retire for good

The Wild Bunch

Directed by Sam Peckinpah, dubbed "Bloody Sam" for his realistic, explicit approach, "The Wild Bunch" (1969) is a graphic film. Few Westerns go to this extent to portray the brutality of outlaw living, but it was done so in order to remind the audience that the West was once a grisly, barbaric place. With its unique slow-mo cinematography, classic antihero characters and over-the-top shootouts, this controversial Western has earned its place in the canon. The story follows an aging gang of bandits that are struggling desperately to keep up with the 20th century. After a botched bank robbery ends with the death of several of their gang mates and the massacre of dozens of innocent bystanders, the group heads south to Mexico for one last big score.
