The Last Outlaw

For some reason I was looking at Dermot Mulrooney's wiki page and it turned me onto an old western he was in called The Last Outlaw.  It was an HBO movie and I vaguely remember seeing ads for it way back when, but I don't think I'd ever seen it.  Wikipedia called it a "cult western," which sparked my interest, and then I saw the cast.

It's like the Pro Bowl of character actors I love.  Aside from Dermot Mulrooney, there's a pre-comeback Mickey Rourke playing the villain.  The guys in the gang?  Aside from two Platoon vets in Keith David and John C. McGinley, there's Steve Buscemi and the great Ted "It puts the lotion in the basket" Levine.

A good movie?  Not sure yet.  A great cast?  Definitely.
