B Western Departure from Formula
16 March 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Skilfully if unimaginatively made and minimally budgeted B western, which alienated Col. Tim's followers because he spends most of the picture doing a Speedy Gonzales character. He heads up his Devil Riders, complete with a Gaucho from the Pampas, singing a Men of the Prairie song and sorting out the local bad men.

Plot turns on stealing a diary written by the heroine's dad ("That Indian writing in there tells where a lot of buried treasure is hidden") and kidnapping her to translate. Usual shoot outs and chases, with some unsuitably jolly music playing under them. Tim does a fast draw and a leap into the saddle from a rock, along with his part of the horse riding and comes off quite plausibly but writing and production values are token.
