Buck Burnett: Oh, I don't think we'll do that ma'am. A man can get bit once by a rattler by accident; if he gets bit twice, well, that's just bein' stupid.

Western fun with appeal, characters, and somewhat of a message
7 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was well disguised as just another fun, well made action packed Western, but it gave a lot more to the viewer while the viewer wasn't watching. Seven Texas boys, led by James Caan, mean to join the Confederacy. The basic reason is because they are young, and they are relatively naive to war, and they think of it as what you might call a "rumble". In this, they are even more naive than Sheen in "Platoon". And why not. They didn't have radio or TV. They probably never read a paper. They know how work with horses, and their idea of war is probably what a lot of boys thought of war. Along the way they have a lot of misadventures, and one even dies before they get to enlist. They are awakened to other horrors when they meet an escaped slave, and a "kindly" old gentleman persuades them to turn the runaway in. I don't think there's a spoiler here. It's evident what will happen. Without being very graphic about the war scenes, they do make it clear of the horrors of war. Many are killed. I won't say how many. All suffer greatly. Other realities not often listed even in modern movies are amputations and disease. Not everyone dies cleanly. You don't even realize you are being given this message during the action. It is cleverly written and directed. On a lighter note, I heard the theme song in the movie before I ever heard "Yellow Rose of Texas," and I thought the actual words were the movie words. Imagine my surprise when someone told me it was taken from a song called "Yellow Rose of Texas", which I still have never heard.
