Review by anonymous (posted on 9-Aug-2006)

A few less-discerning critics stated that in this film, William Holden reprised his role from The Wild Bunch, but nothing could be less correct. In the Wild Bunch, Holden was a vicious killer, a bitter and ruthless man. In the Wild Rovers, he is an aging, good-natured cowpoke who decides to enrich his lifestyle by robbing a bank, aided by his young protege, played by Ryan O'Neal. The two are pursued by the sons of a tough old rancher (Karl Malden). This is an enjoyable movie, well-acted, beautifully filmed, and with an engaging musical score.
