Sharpshooter Enrico Maria Salerno survives a railroad holdup/massacre with a bullet in each hand. Unable to shoot, he takes on wanted man Terry Jenkins as his protégé and eventual avenger, only to find vengeance harder to find than he originally thought.
Like scores of other Italian westerns, there isn't really much new in Banditos. However, it's greatly entertaining thanks to good production values, plentiful gun-play, neat twists, and a few really intense scenes, including a satisfying climax. The main villain is good and nasty too.
Director "Max Dillman" really knows how to take full advantage of the widescreen process, with some nicely balanced frames.
The only real problem is the lack of bankable stars. Still, it's definitely worth a look for fans of the genre.
