"Bite the Bullet" has a lot to chew on, and boasts a fine cast held
firmly under control. Hackman gives his usual unobtrusive acting
lesson, Coburn twinkles but not too much, and Bergen gives the first
decent acting performance of her career (after Hackman chewed her out
for her lack of professional skills and she requested his help).
Questions of greed, competition, teamwork, loyalty, betrayal and
humanity are all given a good and non-medicinal airing. There's enough
action here for the inert, and enough philosophy for the grownups.
There's been discussion in these reviews of the director's use of
slow-motion. Slow motion is not used here to make intellectual points,
it is an instrument of emotional expression. When one character in real
time passes another in slow motion, it conveys to us how they both feel
at that moment, and doesn't need to carry any other freight. As an
expressive device, it works.
The question of animal abuse has also come up in these pages. In "Bite
the Bullet" the horses are always photographed as heroes, often
visually overwhelming their riders. Gene Hackman is shown from the
beginning as a fighter of cruelty against animals, and every abuse he
witnesses he then tries to remedy. The education of the Jan Michael
Vincent character is a case in point.
Furthermore, this picture makes you care about the animals, unlike the
traditional offhand Hollywood cruelty. Dozens of horses were killed to
make the last reel of the Errol Flynn "Charge of the Light Brigade" and
the film itself couldn't care less. You can see trip wires being used
wholesale as late as in "Khartoum", and when those horses went down,
they broke legs and were immediately shot, not pretend, for real.
Hollywood's excuse has always been that horses are expensive and they
don't kill them thoughtlessly. Stunts are performed by circus horses,
which presumably don't come to harm. We're told the only horses that
get killed are old and already destined for the glue factory. Whether
this justifies trip wires or not is up to you, but that's what they
"Bite the Bullet" comes off as sensitive and responsible by comparison.
This is no snuff film. The Oscar-winning sound design makes you really
care when the horses are supposed to be in distress.
A lot worse things happen to the human characters in just about every
action-adventure film of the last twenty years. Is the "yuck" factor
we're now trying to get used to more or less disgusting?
All in all, "Bite the Bullet" is a worthwhile film with content, humor
and beauty. There's thousands of worse ways to spend your time than
watching this movie.
