This exciting western initially seems a lot more conventional, and less bloody, than might be expected from Sam Peckinpah (The Wild Bunch, Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid) but, on closer inspection, it contains many of the maverick director's preoccupations: betrayal, redemption and the erosion of the 'values' of the old west. Near the end of the US Civil War, Major Amos Charles Dundee has been demoted to running a prisoner-of-war camp in New Mexico. However, he is spurred into taking action after an Apache raid leaves many ranchers and soldiers dead, and three young boys kidnapped. Calling on his old friend, now Confederate enemy and prisoner, Captain Benjamin Tyreen, Dundee leads a rag-tag band across the border into Mexico in pursuit of the Apaches, but danger threatens every step of the way.
