Enjoyable western about an interminable pursuit with sensational outdoors
The picture narrates the odyssey of a cowboy ( Martin Sheen) that one time murdered his partner (Havey Keitel) by Indians , steals a horse ( Eagle's wing) to Comanches . He's pursued by an Indian (Sam Waterston) who retrieves it and vice versa , going on a relentless pursuit . Meanwhile , the Indians attack a stagecoach with passengers ( Stephane Audran and John Castle ) and abduct an attractive girl . A Mexican posse (Enrique Lucero, Claudio Brook ) set out to track down the savage raiders.
Solid western with great loads of action and violence . From the initiation when horse robbing until the final , the fast-movement and action-packed western is continued . The pic is a crossover of various films , the white woman kidnapping by Indians like ¨The searches¨ (by John Ford) , the battle against nature from ¨ Man in wilderness land ¨ (Richard C Sarafian) and ¨Jeremias Johnson¨ (Sidney Pollack) and obstinacy and stubbornness between two relentless enemies who fight with no rest such as ¨The duelists¨ (Ridley Scott) . The magnificent cast is formed by an excellent Martin Sheen (Apocalypse now) as tough and two-fisted rider obsessed to recover the slim and graceful horse . Sam Waterston (Killing Fields) in a rare role as Comanche is very fine . Supporting cast is featured by European actors, -this is a British production by Rank Organization- such as Stephane Audran (Claude Chabrol's muse) and John Castle (Lion in Winter) as the priest . Besides , Mexican actors( Jorge Luque , Claudio Brook, Enrique Lucero) because being set in Mexican frontier . Splendid cinematography by Billy Williams , it is wonderfully reflected on spectacular landscapes . Lively and jolly musical score by by Mark Wilkinson . The motion picture is rightly directed by Anthony Harvey ( Lion in Winter). However the picture was a flop and barely obtained money and failed at box office.
