Storyline

The commander of a Texan fort in the Civil War refuses to surrender to the Northerners, and tries to buy the local Indian tribe chief's daughter. The sage man refuses, and the Southerners massacre the tribe and abduct the young squaw anyway. The noble squaw manages to escape, and hides out with a rough rancher, who dislikes Indians, but hates the Southerners more. The odd couple joins forces, and tactics, to exert ultimate vengeance on the men at the fort. Written by Artemis-9

Not as bad as the other reviewer thinks..
25 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Guy must've gotten a poor bootleg copy .. that's what you get for being cheap!! You should get the DVD.. Excellent color, no dark scenes and some nice scenic shots... It's a western.. in the revenge mode.. and you could easy plug Yul Brenner, Lee Van Cleef, or maybe even one of the better cowboy actors into the lead role and it would've done big box office.. Again.. not a bad movie at all.. It's not RATS but what is?? What I didn't like... and I'll agree with the reviewer about.. is the Confederate uniforms.. they had been through as war... but their uniforms were brand new clean!! All white and fresh.. The torture by meat hooks scene was rough.. in a Man Called Horse sorta way..
