Cinema-Maniac: The Wild Bunch (1969) Review

This is by far one of the greatest Western I’ve ever seen. Movies like this are the reasons why I love watching movies.

The Wild Bunch is about an aging group of outlaws look for one last big score as the “traditional” American West is disappearing around them. The story is masterfully told and gets more involving the more we learn about our outlaws. Though my only complaint would be that the story doesn’t include one strong female character, yet despite this issue, I still found the movie to be flawless in execution. Never have I been so invested into so many characters like any other Western and never have I been so glad to sit through a Western, this is truly a masterpiece in film-making.

Every actor performance as the main outlaws were so great that they made me forget they were actors. The score of the music must be praise, it’s tense, it’s thrilling, and it adds more excitement to the experience. Now since this is a Western with allot of bloodshed, I will say I was both amazed and blown away on how powerful these scene of bloodshed were. There truly not enough praise given to this movie. I would go as far as to say that this is the Lawrence of Arabia of Western movies.

The Wild Bunch is great Western that I would recommend to any movie lover. This is a movie with memorable characters, memorable lines, memorable performances, with a memorable story that everyone should experience

10/10
