It's not a masterpiece, but its story of Civil War enemies banding together for battle against Indian warriors and French soldiers packs an occasional wallop.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
