An Exciting good old style film
15 December 1998 | by (Cheshire England) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film which I saw on television, but I did see it originally at the cinema long before IMDB or its directors were in existence.

Vintage Lee Van Cleef and Jim Browm acted out their parts well. I always like these type of Westerns, they never date, but then I grew up on them. The stories always have the same theme but, coupled to the acting and stunning western scenery, they always capture me. Having been fortunate enough to visit the scenery in the US in Arizona, New Mexico and California, the films give me added pleasure. Hope they go on remaking them so as to benefit from the new technology
