simple and entertaining
30 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie has the mentality of one of those old westerns that were churned out in the 30's and 40's, but it is like a spaghetti western version of those kind of films. Like the old-time westerns from the days of Hoot Gibson, Bob Steele, Gene Autry etc., this film has an overly simple storyline, unrealistically uncomplicated situations, and a definite good guys vs. bad guys theme. I'm not too crazy about those old pulp westerns, but this movie is fun because it's done spaghetti-style, with lots of violence, a very cool music score, and Helga Line (who is way sexier than Dale Evans could ever be even in her dreams), so instead of being mindless entertainment for kids on a Saturday morning, it's mindless entertainment for more grown-up Euro-western fans on a Saturday morning. If that makes sense to you, you'll probably enjoy this film. This movie is directed by Leon Klimovsky, but some of Demofilo Fidani's films are in the same vein as this one, so if you like watching Fidani's movies, try this flick if you can find it.
