I am a big Western fan..and it seems the older I get, the more I like them..However, I had not watched this film before..and I really liked it a lot..It had all the prerequisites of great Western..Terrific scenery..good musical score..a time tested plot..and very good characters..It reminded me greatly of 1 of my favorite films, The Last Hard Men...where Charlton Heston/James Coburn starred as the retired lawman and escaped convict..Both films shared 1 thing that is hard to find in a western..a general sense of foreboding where at every turn there was danger lurking in every turn.. In this film's case 2 terrific actors, Kris Kristofferson and Scott Wilson who as leads developed a personal hatred for each other..Both films had young men finding their way in a world they had not experienced in the manner of the lawman, which made the lawman uneasy for relying on him as a back-up..and both films had the beginnings of a love interest that involved a kidnapped hostage and young apprentice..I highly recommend this film, and then decide which 1 you enjoy better..In my case, for different reasons I give it a tie!!!
