Decent western that suffers from the filmmakers trying to make it an "Epic." Probably would have been a flat out bad film if not for a huge budget. The cast does a nice job although Omaar Sharif tries to hard to play Eli Wallach's character from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly." Nice small roles for Telly Savales, the real Eli Wallach, and the great Gregory Peck. While the locations are breath-taking, some of the shots, most notably during the quake at the end, look incredibly fake.
Entertaining but way to long. The song "Old Turkey Buzzard" is awesome!
