Trivia

During an interview after Burt Reynolds passed away, Raquel Welch said she realized quickly after filming began on 100 Rifles that he had such a powerful natural magnetism and presence on screen that she was afraid no one would notice her in their first scene together because they wouldn't be able to take their eyes off him. Back in her trailer, she wondered how she could hold her own against him and suddenly thought "Oh, I know. I'll just take off my bra." So she did, buttoned up the little tight crop top she was wearing, and walked back to the set. She said it worked. See more »

Goofs

The machine gun on the porch would have had to shoot through the supports of the porch railing to hit the people on the ground, below, but no damage is seen to the railing or supports. See more »

good solid action not just for western fans
29 November 2011 | by trojans7See all my reviews

this my not be the best western ever made but for my money this is a great action flick. the action has not dated to bad. this is an action movie with the next battle more a priority than plot or story. I'm not saying this is a bad thing because we have see umpteen storys of this type before, so what tom grimes is give us a solid action movie in a western setting.

as for the cast they are just outstanding, especially rachael. I'm a burt fan so he can't do no wrong but the surprise is big jim brown probably his best role. all the extras were good excluding some poor death scenes throughout but hay it is also a western and that comes with the territory.

100m rifles is truly worth seeing and the DVD look stunning a good transfer probably looks better than ever. if you have not watch a western before give it a go if your a western fan give it another go you will be surprised how well it has stood the test of time.
