    This review is for the Preview version of the film.

    I first watched this film a few months back and wasn't all that impressed however, after reading David Weddle's excellent Sam Peckinpah biography "If they move... Kill em!" and listening to an insightful podcast episode on the film from The Projection Booth, I was convinced to revisit it.
