Surprisingly Good Second Time Around!
on 7 April 2003
Chances are if you are buying this film you've already seen it long ago in your teenage years - you know the plot.
Under another director this movie could have become fluff. The master Peckinpah keeps it taught though, and along with the humour and good time fun injects a gritty quality that probably missed my perception in my youth.
The picture transfer is superb, with strong colours and tones. The one bugbear is the sound. Forget 5.1 Surround. Forget stereo even - this film is offered up in MONO. It's a truckin' shame! Get over it though and just enjoy the film.
Nostalgia is big business these days, and if a yearning for 70's teenage memories has drawn you here you will not be dissapointed.
