This movie has a couple of interesting moments, but mostly it just tries to be "cute," and that doesn't really make for a good spaghetti western. Having a great music score from the master Ennio Morricone can't even save this one from being a below average example.
The most notable spaghetti western regular in this film is Fernando Sancho, who is usually great to watch, but here his role is simply that of a crony, and he doesn't get to shine.
As for the MacGregors, the senior members of the clan are gritty, tough old Scots, and I kind of liked them, but you don't really see that much of them in the film. The story focuses on the sons, who are so ridiculously happy-go-lucky it makes you sick. It's like watching a gang of seven Peter Pans, and they act like puppy dogs every time they see a pretty girl. In reality, these guys wouldn't survive very long in a brutal cutthroat western environment, yet somehow they do. The movie is also part love story, of course.
The most notable part of the film is an especially brutal scene where a guy is repeatedly dragged through a fire.
This one's kind of lame, and not really worth seeking out when there are so many better eurowesterns to choose from.
