Conclusion: 4/5
Terence Stamp and Peter Fonda work incredibly well with each other creating a perfect partnership. The script is very well written with some witty one liners. This has got to be one of Steven Soderbergh’s best films. One of the first songs that is heard is “The Seeker” by The Who. During the 1960s one of The Who’s two managers was Christopher Stamp who was Terence Stamp’s brother. In the original screenplay it was envisioned that the main character would be played by Michael Caine.
