Not only one the very best adventure films, or westerns, or political satires, it is above all a damned tough film - hell, even the women are pretty damn tough. It is endlessly quotable, beautifully directed and acted, and damn, it's hard to tell who was hotter, the babes or the desert. When Lancaster's character, after one of the best sustained action sessions in film, finally has to shoot possibly the only woman he might've loved, and she shows why she's worth a hundred grand, why, there was nobody in film ever tougher than those two.
