Lightweight But Satisfying
5 May 2011 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

In the waning days of the Civil War, politically ambitious Cavalry officer Robert Woods is ambushed by bandits, while transporting captured Confederate gold. Before long, part of the stolen loot mysteriously resurfaces at his home, leading to court-martial, imprisonment, escape and vengeance.

There's nothing really new here and no real bankable stars. However, the Count Of Monte Cristo-like story is engaging enough. It's short and unpretentious, with colorful action sequences, a great score, and pretty good photography, all making this worth watching for fans of Italian westerns. A few good plot twists don't hurt either.

Co-writer Bruno Corbucci went on to create, with his brother Sergio, some truly great westerns, Italian or otherwise.
