This dvd is better...

Seems like an official release and runs about 5 minutes longer than the 98 minute version.

I've been wanting the uncut version of this. $15.00 seems pretty reasonable.

Watched the 92 minutes version and thought it was pretty bad. Wouldn't say it's the worst (S)W(-wannabe) around but it is scrapping pretty badly to make it past the absolute mediocrity line... and doesn't quite succeed. Fabio Testi is pretty bad here; though you can't say if all the fault should be thrown at his atrocious English or the acting also fits in the equation. Jenny Agutter's sexy but in a transparent/watery way, not for everyone and also not much in the way of screen presence or acting. Warren Oates gets the top bill, and he's doing virtually nothing, the irony's that he deserves it nevertheless. The plot is basically a soap opera, with very few exciting moments (there are a few after the first hour or so, can't remember any before that). Monte Hellman's direction seems pretty rudimentary, even taking in consideration there's that 40 minutes longer version, I don't think it could change my opinion drastically, I personally couldn't detect even a minuscule amount of enthusiasm from his side in the movie.


(barely a) 5/10



P.S. One of Sebanek's brothers steals the show, the blonde lad, can't remember who it was.

Joe, how were you able to see this?

I ain't Joe, but to answer your question (if you're still interested): on YT.

I saw the 92 minutes version and I did like it. It is a bit of an unusual western, and judging by the style I wonder in Samp Peckimpah had more to do with it that just the cameo.

Looking forward to seeing the uncut version.

7/10.

He didn't.
Monte Hellmann was a friend (he was co-editor on THE KILLER ELITE and also
was supposed to direct PAT GARRETT before TWO-LANE flopped at the box office).

Sam's cameo is quite good, Jenny is sweet but the film represents those bad mid 70s times for western. Quite bad.

I think I've seen that photo in a book although I can't remember which one.

I think Leone was just visiting. It's a shame he wasn't involved really.

Monte Helmann did a superb job directing "Cockfighter".  "Two Lane Blacktop" is really a classic as well. I highly reccomend "Cockfighter".  There will never be another film like it. 


Cheers,

Eric

Looks like that was released a couple of years ago.
