Lee Van Cleef,
A blind, but deadly, gunman, is hired to escort fifty mail order brides to their miner husbands. His business partners double cross him, selling the women to bandit Domingo. Blindman heads into Mexico in pursuit.
After a violent opening - a stagecoach assault - this buddy western delivers little of the usual violence and action which pertain to the Spaghetti Western subgenre. The 2 leads appear out of nowhere without any information about their past. Slow witted Harry (played in a comedic style by Mario Adorf) seems to have waited for the assault to come sitting right next to his packed mule. As the movie goes on the two small time con men are going through various episodic adventures. Those who look for tough heroes or serious characters should abstain from this film but if you like to pay little attention to a story this one could be a recommendation.
Very unusual score from E. Morricone which underlines the low key mood of the story and good but not outstanding cinematography.
4 / 10. ( a weak 4 )
