1976 on AMC last yesterday.  A not too bad "turn of the century western" Charleton Heston the retired lawman, James Coburn the escaped half breed outlaw out for revenge for the killing of his squaw by Heston, also has Michale Parks (Kill Bill Vol2). Shows the SW influenced  realistic violence and blood.

  That ending with the final showdown between Heston and Coburn and his gang is very bloody, especially when Provo keeps shooting charlton.

  Lots of squibs in that scene.

  I don't know the reasoning for it, but the music from 100 Rifles with Burt Reynolds, Jim Brown, and Raquel was used for The Last Hard Men.   Anyone know why?

I just came across this film. I think it's worth a look. What a cast!

I saw this last summer. It's a pretty formulaic Western that after awhile resembles a rather poor pastiche of The Searchers or any Western captive story, really. Director is McLaughlin, who is here aping Peckinpah rather than Ford, so the direction isn't anything worth writing home aobut. Some nice shootouts and decent cinematography, but nothing that really stands out from any 100 other Westerns you'd care to name. James Coburn is a great, psychotic villain, one of the few he played during his career - he's really good at it. Heston and Barbara Hershey, however, seem to be on autopilot, and the rest of the cast isn't really worth a mention. 6/10, maybe a 7 if I'm feeling charitable.

Your review seems to echo many others I've read about this film. Many mention the Peckinpah similarities the most. The film isn't even out on DVD in Region 1 which pisses me off. I'd still like to see it.

AMC shows it quite frequently, or at least they used to. You should be able to catch it there if you really want to see it.

I rented this off iTunes. Good Coburn performance as usual, but that's just about the only good thing here... Maybe a 6/10
