Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: A boy's adventure story that has mistaken itself for an epic, and it rattles around in its own ambitions like a child's head in a 10-gallon hat.

- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Monday, December 25, 2000


- Bob Grimm, Sacramento News & Review, Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Rotten: The weight of myth sits on nearly every frame of the movie like a 400-pound gorilla.

It's just so damn boring.. Just suck.. Billy Bob Thornton is not a talented director, he should stick as an actor.

Not really a western but a way of life. This is a graet flix, Matt plays an excellent part, not sure why I missed it when it was in the theathers. Worth adding to your collection

I liked the scenes when they are sent to a harsh Mexican prison. The romantic storyline didn't interest me too much.
