Both Kennedy and Lewis turn in colorful performances, but it's Eastwood and Bridges' film, and their ill-defined, tender friendship makes the movie.

Eastwood e Bridges estabelecem uma boa dinâmica, mas é este último, com uma composição jovial e inconseqüente, quem dá alma a um filme menor, mas ainda assim divertido.

Debuting director Michael Cimino obtains superior performances from Clint Eastwood, George Kennedy, Geoffrey Lewis and especially Jeff Bridges.

Eastwood is in good, if not great form, Bridges steals the whole show, and Cimino displays a sense of unpretentious fun and appealing grasp of character that should have held him in good stead for a lengthy career. It didn't.

Cimino is so into making his images glow that he forgets to make the film move.

The likeable result, made for and with the personnel of Eastwood's Malpaso Company, looks like a throwaway Eastwood vehicle.

Eastwood's best non-western movie and Cimino's great debut as writer-director.

Cimino was already making an aesthetic of inarticulateness, and the film is by turns surly, incoherent, and provocatively mysterious.
