The machine gun on the porch would have had to shoot through the supports of the porch railing to hit the people on the ground, below. But no damage is seen to the railing or supports. See more »
This is an average western that does not live up to its potential. A tale of revolutionaries, Mexican Indians, gun running and a determined law man. A lot of gun play and killing in the early 1800's. Ex-football icon Jim Brown seems pedestrian chasing bank robber Burt Reynolds to Mexico. Then there is Raquel Welch. Need I say too much more. An eye-popping outdoor shower scene by a highly exposed Miss Welch is most memorable. Fernando Lamas and Eric Braeden are notable in support. The names Brown, Reynolds and Welch are enough to get you to watch. How involved you get with the story is something else.
