Storyline

An American, Frank, threatens to kidnap his partner's son because he has double crossed him. Unfortunately the boy is accidentally killed during the confrontation and Frank has to run away. His partner, wild with rage, promises a reward of 50,000 dollars for his capture dead or alive. Scott, a crop dusting pilot has crushed into a water tank and having no adequate insurance, he is unable to repay the 12,000 pesos for the repairs. But he remembers seeing the fugitive while flying and manages to persuade Captain Carbajal to go off in pursuit of the wanted man. A group forms, composed of Carbajal, his deputy Lopez, a driver, , Luis and the Indian Joaquin. They set out across the desert, in the hope of laying hands on Frank... and Sylvia, his girlfriend, who has joined him in the meantime. Written by Guy Bellinger

Promising premise peters out
20 May 2004 | by (Boondocks, Ohio) – See all my reviews

A good cast, interesting premise and catchy direction all come to not-very-much here. Max Von Sydow and Gilbert Roland do very well in off-beat parts as a weary pilot desperate for money and a sickly Mexican Cop unwillingly heading up a rag-tag posse chasing across the desert after Ephram Zimbalest as a wanted killer. Emilio Fernandez and Henry Silva add solid support, and Yvette Mimieux is nice to look at, but as the movie goes on -- and on -- there's not much for anyone to do. Serge Bourguignon's direction has its moments, but he apparently didn't care much about keeping up the pace. The result is a film that's sometime interesting to look at but not to watch. It also has the disjointed look of a film that was chopped up rather badly before release. The print aired recently on the Fox Movie Channel also lacks subtitles, which may make the long stretches of conversation in Mexican rather tedious for viewers who don't speak Spanish.
