As everyone knows the 'Spaghetti western' genre took off after the success of Leone's Fistful of Dollars (1964). Some 400 'spaghetti westerns' were made between (roughly) 1964 and 1978 with many never making international release. That said, the genre contained some fine films in their own right, despite the somewhat derogatory term applied to these films. Killer Kid came reasonably early in the cycle and was not one of the better examples.
A man (Anthony Steffen) assumed to be famous outlaw Killer Kid is actually an American agent pretending to help Mexican Revolutionaries in order to save himself and in the meantime ensure that arms destined for the Mexican government don't get there. Or at least that's what I could make of the plot in this confusing, boring spaghetti western which really has nothing new to add to the genre. In the end Steffen's potential love is killed and he decides to join the revolution permanently.
