The great Kinski!
29 September 2002 | by (Kaarina, Finland) – See all my reviews

An above average Italian western featuring a nicely sinister performance by Klaus Kinski. Kinski is a sadistic sex mad bandit who's after dollars as well as women.

The plot is engaging and the acting above average, so this one is easy to recommend to fans of the genre or the man Kinski.

Fast paced and fun. Probably even better with original soundtrack, though!

Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
