The song that Graff repeatedly whistles, and is sung by the men accompanying him, is Unreconstructed Rebel aka Good Ol' Rebel. The song was not written until 1914, many years after the setting of the movie. See more »

Relentless pursuit in the New Mexico desert ...........
An interesting cast does their best, with some material borrowed from Peckinpaugh and Leone. We get the closeups, and the blood spurting slow motion, along with some genuine tension. Mickey Rourke's character is menacing in an almost mystical way. What is not so good is that one must suspend disbelief, when the posse makes Mickey Rourke their new leader, when men seem to take endless bloody gunshots with little effect, and the distracting, out of place use of four letter words. The scenery is stunning, camera work above average, along with some acceptable acting. I consider "The Last Outlaw" to be a slightly above average western. - MERK
