Decent Western with Good Score, Good Dialogue
31 January 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Murderer flees the big city and becomes an arms dealer in the borderlands of Argentina. He grows increasingly cocky, taking more and more risks.

Nothing incredible, but solidly enjoyable, with a good guitar-based score and some dialogue that's both colorful and symbolic. The location shooting is also evocative.

In all, this is sort of a Latin American spaghetti western. At times it evokes Leone -- especially at the end, with its grandiose close-ups and swirling, operatic qualities. At other times it's fairly low-key and subtle.
