Coincidentally, just last night I watched The Badlanders, a western-styled remake of The Asphalt Jungle starring Alan Ladd and Ernest Borgnine. It transferred pretty well to the oater genre, with plenty of action and an interesting racial angle that was not in the original, and which provided the protagonists with a chance at redemption that didn't require the ultimate price.

Seems like I've been seeing W.R. Burnett's name on a lot of movies lately...
