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 »

Okay, but could have been better
4 December 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The basic story was very interesting, and parts of it were well executed. Especially the GREAT ending, which gives Van Cleef a chance to do some excellent acting without having to say a word.

The problem with the movie is that (uncut) it's too long, and way too drawn out. It could have been edited down by twenty minutes or so. Also, the movie does not explore Van Cleef's character's transformation enough, with is a serious mistake.

The more you like spaghetti westerns, the more chance there is you'll like it. You also get to see Bud Spencer without his beard!
