The Japanese could have made it cheaper, but not dumber.
4 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not the worst spaghetti western ever made. That honor belongs to Death Rides a Horse (1968) with Lee Van Cleef and John Phillip Law. If you have not seen that one you are blessed. This one is, however, far and away the hokiest spaghetti western ever made. The talents of two fine actors, Henry Silva and Dan Duryea, are wasted. Silva makes no attempt whatsoever to act. Duryea does and to his credit he does not break up laughing once. Viewers, on the other hand will. An Army fort has an up and down swinging traffic barrier pole, painted with STRIPES. People are shot to pieces and there is never any blood or holes in their clothes. The dialog was taken right off the pages of See Spot Run. At the end of the movie Duryea pins a marshal's star on the bandit turned hero that looks like it came off of a 1940s Christmas tree at St. Vincent de Paul. The pistols whistle softly instead of banging and the good guys throw dynamite at the bad guys.
