Very disappointing Peckinpah western "classic" is not even near such.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

An offbeat and sometimes jumbled western adventure film sees Heston as a Union officer in charge of a jail in the Southwest.

Sam Peckinpah's crippled film plays best as a dry run for The Wild Bunch.

Combustible Celluloid

It's an ode to the unstable, explosive force that was Sam Peckinpah, as well as to the powerful studio system that crushed him and kept him down.

Peckinpah's Western, starring Charlton Heston, is compromised due to studio interverence, but it still has merits

This restored version demonstrates is that while it remains an uneven work, it has flashes of brilliance as well as a general air of competence, even elegance in storytelling.

Giddy-up, Western lovers. This one is worth the return engagement.

It's one of those flawed, fascinating films that are somehow more intriguing than many a smooth-cheeked blockbuster.

Major Dundee, not a great movie but a great star-driven, big budget 1965 studio western, is back in all its fractured glory and confidence.

They don't make movies or movie directors like this anymore.

It's richer and more interesting, partly because some motivations have been cleared up, partly because the music isn't a burden and partly because we now can see that this was all leading to the creation of a truly great film four years later.

The new Dundee plugs some of the story holes but, sadly, it's still a plodding affair that's low on plausible character motivation and compelling action scenes.

Testosterone Valhalla ... This newly restored version proves to be one of the most purely enjoyable, least thorny examples of [Peckinpah's] work.

The restored version becomes a near masterpiece--a most powerful but fragmented western of epic proportions.

Still a mess of great scenes sprinkled among some fairly monotonous action. But it's never completely dull.

It's hard to imagine The Wild Bunch having the depth and grace it did without Peckinpah having this experience to draw on, and for that masterful film alone we're grateful to have Major Dundee back among the living again.

...it is still incomplete - permanently so, since crucial scenes were never even shot - and the seams show.

The 12 minutes excised from the preview version have been recovered, and they go a long way toward clarifying some of the film's murkier passages.
