Pietro Martellanza was cast as Cat Stevens but broke his foot at the beginning of the shooting and was replaced by Terence Hill, who met Bud Spencer for the first time. See more »

Goofs

During the gunfight at the end, the fuse has been burning for a while and should be dozens of feet away but a distant view from above and behind Cat Stevens (Terence Hill) shows the fuse just starting to burn directly behind him. See more »

Not that bad
8 November 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Among all the spaghetti-westerns I have seen(maybe 50) this one belongs to the better ones. It has in fact a pretty complex story line with revenge, false accusation, treasure-hunt and buddy relationship elements which cannot be told in one sentence. There is even a twist and some well placed flashbacks. Terence Hill showed his talents and the "chemistry" with Bud Spencer worked so well that it wasn't their last pairing, to say the least. And I liked to see them as serious actors.

No special score and overall regular cinematography.

Noteworthy: Sandra Brennan from Allmovie Guide rated it with only 1 star, the lowest rating I found. ;)

6 / 10.
