Storyline

A stranger being chased by bandits dies in an accident, but not before he has had a chance to hide a treasure map the bandits wanted. A boy witnesses where it was hidden, retrieves it and passes it on to the local preacher. The preacher recognizes that much of the treasure was likely that from a local mission. He sets out to get it before the bandits find it. Written by Fryingham

Between boredom and tedium
3 July 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The basic idea of "Between God, the Devil and a Winchester" - a reworking of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic novel "Treasure Island"

  • had a lot of promise. However, you wouldn't know it from seeing this


movie. I usually love spaghetti westerns, even the lesser ones, but this one took a great effort for me to sit through. For starters, there is far less action than you might think. Most of the movie is devoted to the characters engaged in (boring) chat. The actors seem to be trying, but the unbelievably actionless plot leaves them pretty much helpless and unable to do much. And while Richard Harrison is prominently billed, for some reason he is put on the backburner for the most part while the less famous actors are given more to do. The filmmakers chose some good locations, and occasionally you get a taste of what a GREAT western adaptation could have been like. But otherwise, this movie will be a great waste of your time.
