" Untraditional western comedy from Sam Peckinpah who is most known for violent actioners. Great colorful characters and another swan song for the genre. I presist that even the hardest man will let a tear fall by it's ending. It is not fair. "

"18.5. (DVD/Kirjasto) Yllättävä komediallinen ote istuu elokuvaan vähän niin ja näin: sikäli positiivinen asenne on ihan piristävää kaiken ohjaajaan yhdistettävän nihilismin jälkeen, mutta esimerkiksi kohtaus, jossa teltta kaatuu uskovaisten niskaan ja pankkiirin leveää naurua kuvataan uudestaan ja uudestaan, on hyvin vaivaannuttava. Vielä pahempaa, jotain jo silmiä räpyttelyä aiheuttavaa ovat spencer-hillmäiset nopeutukset, joiden olemassa oloa ei pysty perustelemaan millä"

"8.2. DVD Automobiili muuttaa Vanhaa Länttä entistä konkreettisemmin, muutoin melko kiusallinen välityö todella epähauskalla hassuttelulla. Liekö ollut Hurme-Samppa vahingossa selvinpäin?"
