Director's cut
11 December 2004 | by (France) – See all my reviews

It's a good euro western that has aged quite well. The U.S. edition is different from the European one : the rape scene was reshot with no nudity, the burning of Bronson's brother is far more violent and gory, some bloody close ups have been removed. The french DVD issued last year contains the "director's cut" and really is a better one. Same thing for another Michael Winner western from this period : "Lawman" in which the euro version shows more of Sheree North's breasts and much more blood. These are not really "director's cuts" per se, but alternative versions of the same film for different countries. Tarantino recently did that with "Kill Bill".
