He seemed to come straight out of the glare of the sun. We never knew what hit us.
Did he say anything?
He said it was a lot easier to kill men than it was to capture them. Next time, he'll stop us the easy way.

I first saw this film on Television in the 80s. Seeing it even now, it still feels like an excellent film, thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable.
It has everything: a great story, solid acting, great action, good humour and just a totally badass feel.
The story revolves around an army officer who loses his wife to dacoit-apaches and then deserts the army to live in the wild. He is then recruited years later by general Miles to help them find and destroy Magnus Tanarngo an Apache warlord who is building a massive apache army to wrest control of the entire US Suoth West.
Great acting by Bekin Feihmu as Captain Kaleb. Captain Victor Kaleb is way more badass than Rambo or the Terminator.
General Miles is played by the great John Huston. Great supporting cast with Richard Crenna (who ironically played COlonel Trautman to Rambo) and Ricardo Montblan. More great performances from Chuck Connors as the dynamite wielding priest Chapman. Tattinger the scout is also great.
Good music as well. The soundtrack has a jazz feel with more primitive sounding percussion. Very unique.
Superb characterization and narrative. Never a dull moment in this film. If you like Westerns or Actin films, this is a must watch.
