The Long Riders isn't quite sure which way it wants to ride, but the action scenes and cinematography make up for any misdirection.

Hill is very much in the American grain, the inheritor of the Ford-Hawks-Walsh tradition of artful, understated action film making.
July 1, 2011
Hill's lean, mean approach never had a more appealing texture than it does here...

A Western Nirvana
June 27, 2008
The casting problems aside, this is a fairly solid, but not particularly extraordinary film.
April 2, 2008
One of the more idiosyncratic James gang westerns but not necessarily one of the better ones.

February 5, 2008
Sacrificing investigations into the mentality behind America's most feared band of outlaws, Hill plumps for an evocation of time and place. He does a magnificent job.
February 5, 2008
Walter Hill's first outright failure.
February 5, 2008
It is an action film, an engaging one, and covers old ground with a contemporary style which never feels out of place.
February 5, 2008
A superb, nitty-gritty retelling of the story of the James-Younger gang.

February 5, 2008
What's ultimately missing is a definable point of view which would tie together the myriad events on display and fill in the blanks which Hill has imposed on the action by sapping it of emotional or historical meaning.
February 9, 2006
A beautiful, laconic and unsentimental film.
October 21, 2005
Walter Hill's first Western is atmospheric and remarkably authentic by casting real-life thespian brothers as real-life outlaw brothers.
| Original Score: 3/4
January 29, 2004
The Long Riders is well-done film about the legendary Jesse James.
December 17, 2002
A so-so effort, with the gimmick of brothers playing brothers its only interesting aspect.
| Original Score: 2/5
April 11, 2001
Four sets of brothers portray...four sets of brothers.
