Unlike all those mavericks who populate the Spaghetti Western genre Quintana has a family and we meet his parents in the second scene of the film. His real name is José and his girlfriend is Esmeralda. Setup is in Mexico where the province is oppressed by the evil Don Juan de Leyra. José puts a mask on his face and converts into a zorro-like avenger who is always in place when injustice occurs. He is supported by priest Mansueto (wellknown genre actor Ignacio Spalla) who hides the pursued ones. "George Stevenson" who plays Quintana is probably an alias name. I have never seen him before and he is lacking the energy needed for the leading job. Overall this story unfolds quite coherent and logical, the characters however remain flat. There are different romances which also develop within expectations.
Camera work is OK, the notable score is better than the film.
