The Wild Bunch is director Sam Peckinpah‘s controversial sagebrush classic that remains one of the most beloved — and talked about — Westerns of all time. Set in the Southwest of 1913, the film concerns a gang of outlaws who are coerced by a Mexican general into robbing a U.S. Army gun shipment. As you may have guessed, this move has swift and fatal consequences. William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Warren Oates, Edmond O’Brien and Robert Ryan star in this masterpiece, known for its bloody and balletic action scenes. Above is the trailer for the film. How do you think it holds up? Is it still as shocking as it was when it premiered in 1969? I think it is, but I’m interested in hearing what you have to say. So let me know your thoughts on this epic below!
