"Dio li crea... io li ammazzo!" introduces Dean Reed as an unusual hero for the genre. Instead of the bearded, silent stranger Eastwood and Nero portrayed, Slim "il Californiano" (Reed) dances with the ladies, has a kind smile for everyone, likes fancy dress and hardly stops talking.

But when the going gets tough... you know the tune. So: some oddities, but "Dio li crea..." finally delivers.
