Not exactly plot-heavy--mostly a lotta shootin' and killin'!
This isn't a bad Italian western at all--though compared to the rest of the films in this genre, this one is even lighter in plot and mostly consists of a lot of shooting and killing. Now, it's reasonably well-done shooting and killing, but if you're looking for depth, this movie isn't for you.
Franco Nero plays a sheriff in a Texas town. After YEARS of waiting, he and his brother inexplicably decide NOW is the time to track down their father's killer in Mexico. However, when they arrive and even mention the guy's name, Delgado, folks get a bit ornery and the killing begins. In fact, once they are in Mexico, practically not a single minute goes by when someone isn't shot!! And, eventually, a dark secret is learned--but I'll leave that for you to discover. And, also to discover is the wonderfully bloody and bullet-riddled finale.
This film is pretty good but it all boils down to lots of death and not much more. Nero is handsome and very good in the lead but an otherwise ordinary sort of western.
