Tremendous tale of revenge
10 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll try not write the big spoilers in this review. This is a tremendous story of revenge, and how it consumes a man, and how it can be hazardous. Peck plays a man who wants revenge for his wife's murder. He follows the trail of four bandits who are about to be hanged, and this is one stellar super star cast of bandits-the smirky handsome Stephen Boyd, the introverted Henry Silva, the gruff Albert Salmi, and later star Lee Van Cleef. They bandits escape, and Peck chases them, cheered on by nearly all of the people he meets. The four men commit evil upon evil, but most of it is done by Boyd. Silva is more or less their guide, and he exudes the most sympathy from the viewer. The movie is perfectly written and directed. It makes the viewer cheer each time Peck kills a bad man, just what the movie wants you to do. In the end, it turns out to be more of a thinking man's movie, and it makes you ask yourself some questions, and at the same time, entertain you. A great movie.
