Avengers always come back
1 February 2004 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Steve (Richard Harrison) is chasing Miller, the man who presumably hired the murderer of his father. He finds him after 15 minutes already – but no, the movie isn't that short. The sheriff stops Steve before he can have his revenge and accuses him of murder instead. Steve has to rely on the help of the bandit Leon (Fernando Sancho) to escape from the law. Later he will return – and fall in love with the fiancée of his enemy Miller…

Revenge western with an occasional funny touch, like the same stagecoach being held up three times in a row till the coach driver goes mad, the lazy gunman who shoots the wrong men because he didn't bother to look, or Leon counting the heads of his children, but not remembering their names. Quite entertaining, though nothing extraordinary for the genre.
