Flawed but oh-so-enjoyable, at least until that retarded Kung Fu climax. Yet I've watched it so many times. Why is it Peckinpah's "worst" films (this, "Osterman," etc.) are the ones I always want to watch?

SG, I feel the same way.

This may not be up to Peckinpah's usual standards, but at least it's not boring.

Plot, acting, dubbing, camera work are never my criteria for a good movie.

As long as I have fun watching it, it's good enough.
