Synopsis:
Starring acting giants Rod Steiger (In the Heat of the Night) as Juan Miranda, an amoral peasant-turned-outlaw, and James Coburn (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid) as John Mallory, a dynamite-tossing Irish revolutionary who has fled to Mexico after becoming a fugitive in his own country. Together, they're a devilishly volatile mix of anti-establishment philosophies and violent tendencies as they attempt to liberate political prisoners, defend their compatriots against a well-equipped militia, and risk their lives on a train filled with explosives.

Spoiler Alert
30/12/2019

Here we have film trying to take the micky out of the old western and gangster films and it ended up being a basket full of, how can I say this without being rude?

We didn't like it at all and only watched to see how bad it could get and it exceeded our expectations

Not in to westerns? Think again! Pathos, comedy, fantastic score, Coburn, explosives, masterful close-up camera-work and the IRA of all things. This film will change your mind. Lovable and truly engaging.
