My father was an engineer during the war... for the North. At first, he was for the South, but they were losing. And, ah, 'Never stick with a loser,' he always said. 'It's a matter of principle.'

Somewhat entertaining but still a hollow and amateurish spaghetti western
This western comes across as something of a parody, as Ringo is constantly smirking and coming across with one-liners. It is a cartoonish, hollow and amateurish outing for the most part. It cannot be taken seriously.
At the outset, Ringo kills several people after him without batting an eye. The whole scene is treated with casual indifference without any investment of emotion. The movie must then struggle to recover believability. However, people keep getting bumped off casually as the story progresses and this continually undercuts any hope of credibility to the story. The plot itself does that too.
There is nothing particularly thrilling about the music score or the scenery to lift the film above its pedestrian level.
It's not a complete waste of time, but almost. Some of the characters are bizarre enough or have interactions enough that are unusual to hold one's interest.
The classic spaghetti westerns are so far above this one that it is a shame to use the same term to describe them. Mind you, there are other minor spaghetti westerns that are quite good, so there is no need to be negative on all of them just because this one happens to be below par.
