In THE LONG RIDERS, America's most famous outlaws band together to rob banks, trains, and stagecoaches. However, things get complicated for the boys when internal conflicts and pursuing lawmen begin to catch up with them.
This violent Western follows four sets of brothers--the Youngers, the Jameses, the Millers, and the Fords--who band together for a crime spree across Missouri. Law enforcers, meanwhile, prove inept in their attempts to apprehend the renegade cowboys, who are busy arguing among themselves. Director Walter Hill's film features four groups of real-life brothers--the Keaches, the Carradines, the Quaids, and the Guests.
Four sets of real brothers (Carradine, Keach, Quaid, and Guest) portray the four sets of reel brothers.
