Storyline

Instead of fighting over newly gained money from a coach-robbery, two gangster-brothers (El Bedoja and Chiuchi) decide to rob a bank together. But Martinez, a gangster-coward, is successfully questioned by Nigros (a clad-in-black gangster-killer who collects the money) and Rocco (a righteous ex-sheriff who doesn't and shows off even more skill in using his pistol) on their plans. After having robbed the bank and needlessly shot several town-inhabitants, the gangsters hide out in a mine, taking beautiful Maruja with them as hostage. Although Rocco and Nigros follow different paths (Nigros the money, Rocco justice), they unite to get the money. They hire Esplotion for the explosives. Because Rocco is out of ammunition, he impales one of the gangsters with a wooden stake. A second showdown plays in a barn. Written by anonymous

Rocco wants to kill Chiuchi and El Bedoja, two brothers who decided to rob a bank together. On his side but not really with him is Nigros, a bounty-hunter who just kills for living. The story consists of cliched plot devices and is spiced with a lot of violence. The bad guys don't kill Rocco when they have the opportunity and viceversa. The story is sometimes disjointed, the acting is regular at best and there is no remarkable score. Film is somewhat entertaining overall, though.
