Overview

The Long Riders

The hook in Walter Hill's mythic retelling of the James-Younger outlaw legend is in the casting; the James, Younger, Miller, and Ford Brothers are played by a string of acting brothers, the Keachs, the Carradines, the Quaids and the Guests. The film begins as outlaws are robbing a bank. After the robbery, Ed Miller (Dennis Quaid) finds himself kicked out of the gang for needlessly killing a man during the robbery. Jesse James (James Keach) hands over Ed's share of the money and tells him to leave, a feeling held mutually by Ed's brother Clell (Randy Quaid). After the killing the gang decides to split up for awhile. The James boys return to their wives and farms, while Cole Younger (David Carradine) travels to Texas with his prostitute girlfriend Belle Starr (Pamela Reed). After the brief respite, the gang reunites to rob a well-stocked bank in Northfield, Minnesota. The robbery turns out disastrously, with most of the gang either wounded or dying. The James boys are the only ones not seriously hurt, and they leave the rest of the gang behind, escaping while they can. After the James boys leave, the remnants of the gang are captured. But trailing the Jameses is a relentless posse. Frank and Jesse manage to keep one step ahead until the Ford brothers (Christopher Guest and Nicholas Guest) make a deal with the Pinkerton detectives trailing the outlaws.

The Long Riders is a magnificent piece of cinema and art, period. It is one of the last truly classical Westerns that this country produced and is the best and most realistic portrayal of James and Younger gang. The climax shootout in Minnesota reminded much of the opening reel of the Wild Bunch. The violence in it is brutal yet not irrelavant or glorified, it's just there. There are excellent one-liners in this movie from David Carradine, my favorite character in all of Westerns besides Augustus McCrae.

A must have film for anyone who likes The Old West.

Walter Hill does a great job of delivering action in a believable fashion for a Hollywood retelling. And the casting doesn't suffer from it's "brother" novelty, since everyone carries thier part pretty well. Just a solid Western in the style of Peckinpah.
