Pier Paolo Capponi,
Roy escapes from a work camp and receives help from a miner. The miners are held hostage by the local boss Mr. Redfield. Roy starts to help the miners and also to settle some scores for a friend from the work camp.
This spaghetti western has some interest due to the fact that its star was the controversial singer Dean Reed. Unlike some other singers turn actors, Reed does give it his all, but there's still a problem with his performance. His character, while the supposed hero of the movie, is very unlikable. The character is smug and arrogant, and comes across as very annoying throughout. There are additional problems with the movie. The story is slow-moving, and while the running time is less than 90 minutes, all the same feels way too long. Still, there are a few positive things about the movie. The production values are solid, and combined with some interesting locations and some atypical direction, the movie looks and feels a lot different from most spaghetti westerns. But despite this, the movie is only for die hard fans of the genre.
