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

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's gratifying to see Sony expending such effort on an important but admittedly second-tier picture.

The movie still isn't great, but it's an important remonstration to that oldest of all studio-system curses: the producer who thinks he's more creative than the director.

Sam Peckinpah's famously butchered 1965 western, Major Dundee, has been returned to the big screen in a form that is closer to the director's original vision.

At its best you can feel Peckinpah, at the twilight of the studio era, dreaming of a far wilder bunch.

Peckinpah's first patently runaway-train production seems less a restored classic than a missing link in the breakdown of Hollywood genre hegemony.

Charlton Heston is the cavalry officer assigned to eliminate Apache resistance; Peckinpah makes a fine, ironic use of his stentorian presence in what becomes a very grubby context.
