Wild Bill Reviews

    Typical mid 90's movie, unrealistic script and actors taking themselves too seriously for a movie this bad. This movie would be right at home as a play performed in any high school gym in rural America.

    So Far off from The facts it’s not even enjoyable.

    Ambitious, but in the end failed attempt to demystify a Wild West legend is well produced, but lacks coherence and a stringent plot; Jeff Bridges is good in the title role, but most of the star cast is condemned to playing sallow bit parts.

    Walter Hill's stab at a Wild Bill Hickok biopic is a muddled mess. Littered with annoying flashbacks, it presents a watered-down and fictionalized account of Kickok's final days. One positive is that Hill would revisit this material again with the excellent HBO series "Deadwood."

    Bridges can sure eat up some film when he wants too and add in Walter Hill and you have a home......well let's call it a sharp single.

    I remember this film as a kid and not liking it very much. Jeff Bridges plays Wild Bill Hancock and while I remember him bring good in the movie, I didn't find any other enjoyment in the film. It just didn't have a good feel to it.

    Interesting take on Wild Bill Hickock, again mixing more fable with his real life

    Jeff Bridges as both the advertised legend and as the very tired soul behind the advertising, sick of whole production even as he keeps the fires stoked. Ellen Barkin and John Hurt ably fill in as seconds, all of us simply waiting for the drama to draw to its infamous closing moments, which flaws a generally interesting take on living with fame.

    Despite a loose story that plays fast with history and blatant copying of Stone's 'Black & white for the past' technique, Wild Bill is elevated by a strong cast and good, brisk pacing.
