While escorting a Spanish princess back to her homeland, a wisecracking gunfighter does battle with such foes as Vikings, Moors, barbarians, evil spirits, a raging bull, and a maniacal Shakespeare-quoting hunchback.
A blind, but deadly, gunman, is hired to escort fifty mail order brides to their miner husbands. His business partners double cross him, selling the women to bandit Domingo. Blindman heads into Mexico in pursuit.
This movie was released in 1981 and started the 3-D phase of the early 80s when a large amount of movies were put out in 3-D. This is a western about a good guy tracking down a bunch of bad guys who are holding his girlfriend hostage.
I was "lucky" enough to see this in a theatre back in 1981. The 3-D actually wasn't that good--it only worked occasionally and it didn't disguise the fact that this movie was lousy. The plot is strictly by the numbers, nobody can act and it was dull. This was just made to show off 3-D--they shove EVERYTHING in your face. Bats, rats, guns, flaming arrows... and in one hysterically tasteless shot a baby's butt is lowered onto the camera! Some of the 3-D effects that work are fun...I confess I ducked a few times at the arrows. But it gets tiresome real quick when the 3-D is used nonstop and there's nothing else even remotely interesting to keep your attention. This would be ALMOST worth catching for the 3-D...but it really wasn't that good and I heard the version on video doesn't work at all. Also you get a splitting headache from the glasses.
Pointless and boring with bad 3-D. Skip it.
