This film has two of the greatest music icons in the history of the world in it. I am talking about Joe Strummer (of the Clash and Mescaleros) and Shane MacGowan (of the Pogues and Popes). So in that regard, you have to give it a 10. However, if you are not a Clash or Pogues fan, you will most likely think this film sucks! Why? Because the film sucks. But wait a minute, you just said that you have to give it a 10? Right (voice in head), I did say that and I did give it a 10. Because Joe Strummer and Shane MacGowan are my two favorite musicians of all-time. So, they earn this thing a 10. Now, you raise a good question (voice in head), what if Strummer and MacGowan were not in this film? Well, I would probably give it a 1. Oh yeah, the story. Some people rob a bank and then go to hide out in this strange and isolated city in the Spanish countryside. There are violent and weird people that live there. So staying alive and holding on to the money will be difficult. Did I mention that this film has Joe Strummer and Shane MacGowan in it? Yeah, I gave it a 10, but, it really wasn't a good....you know what I am getting at?

A gang of bank robbers with a suitcase full of money go to the desert to hide out. After burying the loot, they find their way to a surreal town full of cowboys who drink an awful lot of coffee. The townspeople are hostile to the outsiders at first, but seem to accept them once they've killed a couple of people. After a while, a mysterious man named Dade arrives, who seems to have unpleasant business to settle with the robbers. A free-for-all shoot-em-up ensues.

It has Joe Strummer and Shane MacGowan !Reviewed bydriver_8Vote: 10/10
Cox doesn't go for the obvious jokes in this bizarre send-up of the spaghetti Western, Peckinpah-esque genre. I believe it's just incredibly funny even if you don't know who the players are. In any case, what's appealing to me is the over-the-top visuals and violence while the jokes regarding the idiom itself aren't the usual "stinking badges" or eyes looking around ones. Instead Cox has fun with the strange aggressive sexual tension of the idiom and the amorality it tried to represent.
This film is all what Westerns in the eighties was about. Western didn't exist in that period it was taken over by post-punk Western as Straight To Hell, a cult movie, most enjoyable to watch and mostly funny. If You Got Joe Strummer, Elvis Costello, Dennis Hopper and Grace Jones In One Film praise The Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
