When you read this review, you are likely to know the basic revenge story of spaghetti western movies. If you are looking for an innovative plot, turn away! This movie just does not deliver anything you would not have expected right from the start. However, the actors manage to keep you interested. Great performances from almost every single one of them! You are very likely to remember Shane's mad eyes (blue and wide open!!) and maleficent grin as he kills one bad guy after the other - pleading for their lives does not help them a bit. In return, the bad guys kill off helpless and innocent people - well, here's your plot... The film is also distinguished by the outstanding photography of Stelvio Massi - frame composition is always careful and sometimes original, and even the colors show some unity, tending towards warm and brown hues -, plus the editing tended to make sense, something not easily encountered in this genre! So there are your reasons for checking out this one. True, there are some tedious bits, like the love story between Shane and Bennett, and her small boy (with his dog) is also involved... well. But they help to contrast the senseless and violent killings. I, as a genre aficionado, found it highly entertaining.
