Goofs

When handed a rifle, Ben Novack says it's a little bigger than the one he used in Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia was not a country until 1918; this movie never states the exact year it takes place but it's clearly in the 1800s. See more »

Lee Van Cleef,Lionel Stander,Antonio Sabato,BUd Spencer,Gordon Mitchell.
14 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this spaghetti western is not too bad.i though the story was interesting,and there are some good performances.Lee Van Cleef is the main star,and is quite good here.but he is overshadowed by a few others.Antonio Sabato(father of pseudo-actor Atonio Sabato Jr.)for one puts in a terrific performance,as does Lionel Stander(80'S TV show Hart to Hart.i also liked Bud Spencer(who acted in numerous spaghetti Westerns)though i wish his role had been bigger.but the real standout,in my mind,is Gordon Mitchell,for his "ice water in his veins' portrayal of Burton.the big negative for me though is the length of the film.i feel it is at least 30 minutes too long,and it moves fairly slow at times.but the performances overcome that weakness.for me,Beyond The Law (1968)is a 6/10
