Wild Bill (R) This vivid Western from writer-director Walter Hill begins by galloping through the early exploits of the legendary gunslinger James Butler ”Wild Bill” Hickok (Jeff Bridges), an hombre so ornery he’d shoot a man just for touching his hat. Yet most of the action occurs during Hickok’s final days, as the opium-smoking, glaucoma-stricken marksman reflects on his life. The film succeeds as a study of a man whose idiosyncratic code of justice eventually catches up with him. B+
