Another Sam Peckinpah film on here, and just as good as the first one we reviewed. If you recall the film Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia, is the other one of his films we reviewed.

I’m still amazed at this movie. Dude is genius. Dustin Hoffman’s performance is stunning.


The basic premise of the story is Dustin Hoffman’s character is married to a girl in England. They take a vacation in what I think is her father’s house. There’s a group of guys that are jealous of his beautiful wife and you can tell early on something is going to happen with that situation. There is a local misfit that gets in some trouble and Hoffman is the only one that defends him, but brings on a lot more trouble than he first realizes.

The film includes some great sexism from what I think it was like back in the day. I laughed.

As the movie goes on it only gets better. A lot of violence and rape. And violence.

Hoffman basically has to defend his house from those crazy English hooligans. Without weapons. He does a great job. This is a great movie. I might even have to add it to our Top 10 List here on wtflicks.
