Large bands of cowboys shoot at each other
6 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You're not missing much if you pass this early spaghetti western by. Other than its foreign cast and locations, it doesn't have the accouterments of an artistic spaghetti western. It lacks all flair and comes across as a routine confrontation between two opposing parties.

The main distinction it had was that the warring parties employed so many cowboys that when the first ambush occurred with shooting down from high rocks onto a narrow road passage, it took on the dimensions of a massacre.

It was a shame that the voice of Eduardo Ciannelli was dubbed. He played a bedridden rancher who was willing to sacrifice his own son to augment his holdings.

James Mitchum was bland and walked through his part unruffled.

I found myself completely unable to invest any emotional capital in this one and be drawn into sympathy with anyone at all. It was hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys in a sea of undistinguished extras.
