A made-in-Spain western of little interest
31 December 2007 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Rory Calhoun's name on the marquee might indicate a minor but serviceable western. Such, however, is not the case. A muddled script, unpersuasive casting, and lackluster characterizations add up to viewing which, while not downright awful, is definitely forgettable. The Spanish locations have a drab look and are a poor match for what is meant to be Oklahoma. Action scenes are indifferently handled and the touch of romance provided by leading lady Silvia Solar has little in the way of appeal or even plausibility. While we're at it, why are American prints sometimes given the meaningless title of "Blue Lightning?" One small point of interest is the presence of James Philbrook as the leader of the Confederates. His next film, "Son of a Gunfighter," probably provided him with his best role. Curiously, both that film and this one contain a scene of a bare-chested man staked out spreadeagle style and left to die under the roasting sun. In "Gunfighter" the victim is played by Kieron Moore. In this movie the victim is the hirsute German Grech who sweats up a storm as the ill-fated Sgt. Delmer.
