It's the Posse...
15 July 2000 | by (Palo Alto, California) – See all my reviews

After repeated viewings, I think Posse is an underrated film. Sure, some of the characters(at times)implausibly speak present day lingo, but the majority of the film is the pure west.

It's no oscar winner, (much more harder-edge in the writing was needed) but it does its job, (as does the beautiful Salli Richardson!)
