This movie is really nothing special, and sometimes even boring, but if you are a fan of Spaghetti Western you will not hate it. In fact this is not brutal at all for a S.W., maybe because the director is Spanish and not Italian? The story is the same as many other western movies: a guy it's judged for a crime he hasn't done, and, after have been in prison, comes back to get his revenge, but here there is no searching and hiding and killing of the enemies one after another. The revenge becomes less important than the actual happenings in the town "Paraiso", and the love stories with Cora and Lois. Anyway i saw the new Italian DVD release in 79 min. version, and i missed something, but there is a lot of talk in this movie, much more than in every other S.W. i have seen, so that the plot results easy to follow, even with 16 cut minutes of movie. The music is OK, not the best Francesco De Masi, but i really loved the opening song "A man must Fight". Some night scenes, shot in "day as night", are too dark and you see almost nothing. In my opinion with this plot it would have been possible to shot a far better movie. Just for real Spaghetti Western movies fans.
