excellent!
22 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an awesome spaghetti western that deserves more recognition from fans of the genre.

The story is a classic tale of revenge. The "Hero" is a villain himself, in true spaghetti fashion. He is wronged to such a severe and violent degree that one can't help cheering him on as he brutally hunts down and kills the men who betray him and leave him for dead. There isn't a single boring moment in this movie.

The acting from all the cast members is above average for a Eurowestern. I especially like Robert Woods's maniacal laughing as he torments the victims of his vengeance. It's a nice touch- definitely the kind of thing that makes these Eurowesterns so fun to watch.

Lallo Gori's music score is fantastic. It has a style all its own, and manages to sound great without trying to imitate Morricone. The organ music parts are especially cool.

There is even a little touch of Poe at the end, as the buildings begin to crumble around the tragic characters.

I really can't say enough about this movie without giving too much away, so see it for yourself if you can find it!
