* Suddenly a new West has emerged. Suddenly it was sundown for nine men. Suddenly their day was over. Suddenly the sky was bathed in blood.
* Nine men who came too late and stayed too long...
* Unchanged men in a changing land. Out of step, out of place and desperately out of time.
* Born too late for their own times. Uncommonly significant for ours.

The Wild Bunch Original Director's Cut Special Widescreen Edition: Video Synopsis
Few movies have been so initially controversial and enduringly brilliant as Sam Peckinpah's film "The Wild Bunch". By today's standards, the violence that ignited firestorms of debate in 1969 seems less shocking. By any standard, the powerful tale of hang-dog desperados bound by a code of honour rates as one of the all time greatest westerns - perhaps one of the greatest of all films. This original director's cut restores "The Wild Bunch" to a complete, pristine condition unseen since its July 1969 theatrical debut. The image is letterboxed, the colour renewed, the stereo soundtrack remixed and reintegrated - all to blood-and-thunder effect. Watch William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan and more great stars saddle up for the roles of a lifetime. "We've got to start thinking beyond our guns", Holden advises his men. But they're trapped in the ways that got them there. They'll go out in a blaze. Not of glory, but of the hellfire of bullets.

The Wild Bunch: Tony's Comments
"The Wild Bunch" is a landmark western, controversial in its day for its extreme violence. Yes, the deaths are depicted in graphic detail, with slow motion photography but the film has a story to tell and tell it, it does.  Although some of the violence may seem somewhat tame by today's standards it nevertheless caused a stir when it was initially released. The film features a cast of veteran actors (William Holden, Robert Ryan, Ernest Borgnine and Ben Johnson) all past their prime but perfectly suited for their roles as the aging desperados. They play violent men who live by a code of honour. They are set in their ways and are struggling to cope with the changing times of the old west. "The Wild Bunch" is gripping western entertainment from start to finish, full of action, suspense, and emotional drama. The film has developed a reputation as being not only one of the best westerns ever made but one of the greatest films ever made. It is unquestionably Sam Peckinpah's masterpiece and a film that deserves all the praise that it gets. Westerns don't get much better than "The Wild Bunch".
