Quotes

Jeffrey Duncan: Nobody ever had mercy on me. When I was a boy they beat me. Even called me bastard. I didn't cry and I couldn't fight back. So thaY began my reveange to get back at them. Brought out my hatred for the indians, like my mother. And I kill white people like my father. My father... A preacher like you, a minister. Breed by mercy. But I got a bad breake when somebody killed him and beat me to the punch.

how good this might have been
30 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not without interest but this starts so well with some great long shots and then some startling up close violence and the story is unfolding as we struggle to keep up, and then it pretty much stops. We are introduced to a very young Burt Reynolds who looks pretty good with his horse and rifle but then we get to meet the baddie brothers and they seem far more interesting. Lovely old train but lame plot which necessitates the town's folk (who have said 'no' to guns) being able to do nothing except sit around and wait hoping that Joe will sort things out. Thing is we have to sit watching them sit. And so it plods on. There are a couple of spurts of nasty violence but the girls are wasted, criminally so in the case of Nicoletta Machiavelli and we are forced to imagine just how good this might have been.
