This spaghetti western can be put into the "routine" category. It has one of those meandering plots which seems to have been put together from notes jotted on the back of an envelope. However, patient viewers will be rewarded by a few quirky moments which add touches of interest to the proceedings. For example, there's the piano player in the saloon who switches to classical music when brawls break out, there's a sequence in which the stripped-to-the-waist hero gets whipped across his bare back -- a flogging which ranks 48th in the book "Lash! The Hundred Great Scenes of Men Being Whipped in the Movies" -- and there's a nifty fight between the good guy and the bad guy involving a rotating waterwheel. What's more, the dubbed English voices trying, occasionally, for Scottish accents produce a few unintended chuckles. It's not much, but you take what you can get.
