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

18 December 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The spaghetti western made a mini-comeback in the 1986/1987 period, what with DJANGO STRIKES BACK being released, along with this movie and WHITE APACHE, both of which I'm pretty sure Mattei directed at the same time. For spaghetti western fans (like myself), or fans of Mattei's sometimes delirious exploitation movies like RATS, it's a double disappointment. It's a dreary affair for the most part, seeming to run an extra half hour than it actually does. It's also pretty cheap-looking, not just with the obvious things like tacky Confederate costumes and poor cinematography (some night scenes are near impossible to make out), but Mattei wasn't even able to find some nice Spanish locations to shoot on like the countless spaghetti western made 20 or so years earlier! There are a few bits of nonsense that will make you smile, like one scene that blatantly rips-off a famous moment from RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART 2 (!), and one of the strangest final showdowns in spaghetti western history. There are also some really bloody bits, from scalpings to torture. Speaking of torture, I think this would be a good movie to force spaghetti western-hating author Brian Garfield to watch - with it not only being spaghetti but especially bad, his eyeballs would probably explode!
