light entertainment with some very good fighting scenes.
18 July 2003 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

A Spaghetti western with Martial based on a real character Joseph Charlemont and real events (Serving as an officer in the French army in Mexico in 1865), who was one of the creators of the French Kick fighting Savate. A powerful martial arts movie, in the wild west with good acting light entertainment with some very good fighting scenes.
