Good spaghetti but nothing special
19 January 2002 | by (isla de la muerte) – See all my reviews

3 rogues steal a mining company's payroll from Antonio Sabato's Czechoslovakian mining engineer at the beginning of this rather routine Spaghetti Western. They then spar with the black-clad villain Burton. The story of the transformation of Lee Van Cleef's Cutlip from criminal to marshal is interesting and could have made a really good film, but it is poorly executed with unimaginative direction and music. However, a few of the scenes, particularly those with the hostages, are effective. If you like SW, then you will find something in this film to enjoy. I did. But if you do not, then avoid. I saw a rather poor quality pan and scan VHS. The film would really benefit from widescreen.

Lee Van Cleef's performance is good, but as usual with SW there are some priceless dubbed lines like, "I never saw nor heard so many b*****ds in all my life. All you men got families that came from all over the world, right? The kid just got here and gets and little bad luck and you treat him like a dog. Who the hell do you think you are? You act like you all got hit in the head with a horse!"
