Great 70's action movie
22 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie when I was a boy with my dad on TV back in the 80's, I liked it but I really didn't quite enjoy it. I bought the DVD 4 months ago and it knocked me out of my socks. This movie is so intense both in the action and the romance as well. I think Vicente Fernandez as the arracadas could be the Mexican version of Scarface, seriously. This guy was amazing and his performance was as good as i have ever seen in an action movie.

This is an action/western movie that will keep you watching until the end, there is some intense violence and some of the shooting scenes are good even for this age specially the bullets hitting the clothes and the blood coming out in a very realistic way as well as some mild nudity(not for young kids).

Overall this is a movie that if it came out on TV with English subtitles, I am sure arracadas face would be on lots of t-shirts.
