Walter Hill, director of Wild Bill, The Last Man Standing, Supernova, 48 hrs., Another 48 hrs, Tesspass, Red Heat, The Warriors, Extreme Predjudice, and Johnny Handsome, delivers The Long Riders. The storyline for this picture was okay but the characters and their delivery was fascinating. The script was marvelosu and the cast delivers above average performances and includes David Carradine, Randy Quaid, Dennis Quaid, Robert Carradine, Keith Carradine, James Remar, and Pamela Reed.

"Because you're a whore."
This film grabbed my attention for two reason: it was directed by Walter Hill and it contained so many acting relatives. I am a fan of Hill's 'B' movies as well as the western genre and thought I'd give this a shot. Overall, it was entertaining for what it was. There is nothing "new" here other than some witty one-liners and solid acting. This is worth watching if you are a fan of westerns or the Carradines.
