Set in turn of the century Mexico, it tells the story of his flight into Mexico and his pursuit by an American lawman.

Part Cherokee Indian, Burt Reynolds plays a Yaqui Indian in this movie. Prior to the making of this film, Reynolds had played characters of Indian descent in two productions of television series. The first was as the half-breed blacksmith Quint Asper in _"Gunsmoke (1955)"_ whilst the other was as the New York DA's office cop Detective Lieutenant John Hawk, a full blooded Iroquois Indian, in Hawk (1966).

Burt Reynolds, Jim Brown, and Raquel Welch make a pretty good team in 100 Rifles
Burt Reynolds plays a half-breed who stole some money to buy the title amount of items for his people, Jim Brown is a sheriff pursuing him, and Requel Welch is a revolutionary having witnessed a hanging of a family member. All three eventually team up to defeat the Mexican general Fernando Lamas and his men for all the cruel acts they committed. With what I just described, this was quite entertaining what with all those action scenes, a steamy love scene, and Ms. Welch's assets almost exposed whenever her close-ups come on. Really, I don't have anything else to say except that 100 Rifles is worth a look for fans of the above players.
