Nice opening sequence: Winnetou rides onto the screen with dramatic music and soon rescues a young boy who is attacked by an eagle. Regrettably, the initial energy is not kept up at the same level. The movie tells the story of Apanatschi (young Uschi Glas) and her little brother Happy who need protection by Winnetou (Pierre Brice) and Old Shatterhand (Lex Barker) because they know where a gold mine is. Bandits with their leader Curly Bill want to know, too - and they stop at nothing and even killed Apanatschi's father.
After the classic Silver Lake", the larger-than-life Winnetou trilogy and the three easy-going movies starring Stewart Granger, Half-Breed" feels a bit tired to me. Lex Barker and Pierre Brice replay their famous roles, but there are hardly new ideas. More violent action, less feeling, could be the summary of my impressions.
