After the whole family of Shane (Mike Marshall) was murdered, he is seeking revenge. Being merciless in the beginning (he even buries one villain alive!), meeting a beautiful young widow (Michele Girardon) and her son makes him slowly change his mind. His obsession with revenge (the camera just loves to make close-ups of Mike Marshall's steel-blue eyes staring wildly) gradually fades away. Especially when he finds out that one of the villains he has hunted has become a monk because he regretted his deeds. Will Shane be able to forgive?
At first this seems like an average revenge western among a thousand others, but it stands out from the crowd by a slightly more thoughtful attitude of director Fizzarotti, whose only western this is. Revenge isn't just a natural way of life (or rather, death), it is questionable sometimes. Also the movie has an interesting cast. You may recognize one familiar face, Spartaco Conversi, from 'Once Upon A Time In the West' among the bandits, for example. Voted 7/10
