Durango does the math
14 October 2012 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Durango (Brad Harris) works as a debt collector. Somebody didn't pay after he lost a game of poker? Call Durango, and he'll get you the money - minus the 10 percent he always keeps as his reward. One day, however, he retrieves 100,000 dollars from a stolen money transport, and the manager Ferguson (Gino Lavagetto) thinks 10 percent of 100,000 is far too much. He accuses Durango to have stolen the money from him, and with 10,000 dollars in his pockets, Durango finds it hard to convince the sheriff he's innocent. In prison, Durango meets the Mexican bandit El Tuerto (Jose Torres) who helps him to escape. While he hides at a beautiful blond lady (Gisela Hahn), Durango makes plans for his revenge on Ferguson, but El Tuerto meanwhile joins company with other bandits and makes his own plans...

Average 'western all'italiana' without major flaws, yet without something new, either. Jose Torres' maniacal performance is outstanding in a movie where everyone else seems a bit wooden. One scene when Durango hands El Tuerto, who is calling him names, over to the sheriff is definitely 'inspired' by 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'.
