Storyline

Domino returns from the Civil War to find his ranch in ruins and his father murdered. Five men were responsible and four were identified. One by one Domino outdraws the four that were known, all being outlaws. There is only one left now. Domino does not know his identity but that man probably knows of Domino and his mission.

Wade Harrington claimed that part of Domino's ranch is public land so that Domino had no claim to it and couldn't use it, yet Wade built a dam on it. He was saying Domino can't use it because it's public land, but then he used it. Makes absolutely no sense. See more »

Domino: Why?
Cantina owner: There is to be a gunfight between an Americano named Strangas and the man they call "Domino".
Domino: How do you know?
Cantina owner: The man in the telegraph station is my brother-in-law. This Domino sent the telegram that Strangas meet him in the street here at 8:00 in the morning. You might get hurt, senor.

Nothing like a good Western! Nothing at all, I'm afraid . . .
10 March 2004 | by (Fayetteville, GA) – See all my reviews

If you're a die-hard Westerns fan (which I am), you'll manage to get through this one -- but you'll hate yourself in the morning.

Rory Calhoun spends a few weeks tracking down his father's killers, taking a bullet in the shoulder during one shoot out, until he finally goes back to his old homestead to settle down with his gorgeous former sweetheart.

And he never changes clothes once through the whole film. The bullet hole in his favorite shirt heals up as fast as his chest wound. Nice trick, huh?

Hokey dialog flies thicker than the bullets, and Calhoun is as wooden as a hitching post. If you make it to the final shoot out, you'll get to watch the worst shots in the West manage to miss each other so often they run out of bullets.

Calhoun finally takes a few slugs, but he still manages to crawl -- yes, crawl -- across an open street, straight toward the bad guy, who misses him repeatedly with a RIFLE from twenty feet away!

When Calhoun's sweetheart and the town doc (sci-fi veteran Thomas Brown Henry in his smallest role), examines the wounded Calhoun, he says, "He'll be alright as soon as I get all those holes plugged up."

What a man! What a movie . . .
