A very unimaginative Italian western.
22 October 2003 | by (Kaarina, Finland) – See all my reviews

Mish mash of a western from Italy.

King is a bountyhunter after a vicious gang of brothers who are selling gatling guns to Mexicans.

Boring, uneven, uninspired and unimaginative run of the mill spaghetti western. Only scenes that work are the ones where Klaus Kinski appears on screen, which is alltogether about 10 minutes anyway.

Best missed.

Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
