Walter Hill follows in the footsteps of directors Nicholas Ray and Philip Kaufman, and presents his version of the story of the James-Younger gang. Held as heroes by many, and much celebrated for their attacks upon the railroad, the gang became the most famous band of outlaws in the country. They were eventually brought to ruin by the Pinkerton detective agency, losing many of their number in the ill-fated Northfield, Minnesota bank raid. Hill's film tells the whole story with explosive slow-motion violence, vivid period detail, and a cast made up of celebrity brothers (the Carradines, Keachs, Quaids and Guests).
