Lola Montez: How did you know I was on that stage?
Charles E. Boles: Very simple. There's posters of you from here to the Mexican border.
Lola Montez: Is that why you chose to rob that particular stage? Because I was on it?
Charles E. Boles: Well, the $10,000 they were carrying didn't keep me away, either.

Interesting and disappointing
3 December 2000 | by (Surrey) – See all my reviews

Can you be disappointed if you had no expectations in the first place? In this case: yes. This less than a classic western has an above average idea it fails to deliver. The triangle romance between the zorro- like masked villain, the posing- as- a- good- guy villain and the European dancer- and- mistress- to- the- emperor- of- Austria- turned- saloon singer is actually quite original.

The film, however, is not. The standard western imagery and unimaginative cinematography/direction condemns this film into the "forgettable"- category. Still it must be noted that there is no hero in this western: just two outlaws and a corrupt dame. Although they get their due in the "grand" finale, themes like that are not frequent in the westerns of the classic era but associated usually to westerns in the late 60's and 70's.
