After the Civil War, Michael "California" Random, is released from prison and goes to Missouri with his partner William. He is killed by bandits. California decides to return the belongings to his family and help them against outlaws.
"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. The villain (great: Peter Martell) owns a walking stick with hidden gadgets while the ladies fall in love with young Reed's handsome looks - it's almost a bit like James Bond. But surprisingly, this movie develops step by step into a tough western with the typical ingredients of the time, including quite a lot of violence. Slim is hired to clean up the town, but he's framed for a robbery himself and thrown into prison. His best friend is tortured hanging from the ceiling. But when the going gets tough... you know the tune. So: some oddities, but "Dio li crea..." finally delivers.
