Okay, though nothing special
8 October 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

The particular print that I saw of this European western was titled "Revenge of Sartana", which is a very inappropriate title since there is not only no character named Sartana in the movie, there's not that much in the way of revenge. Anyway, this western is kind of a mixed bag. On the positive side, the plot seems to be going towards a standard revenge western at the beginning, but then abruptly changes things around in a surprise twist. The acting is pretty good, and the production values are solid.

On the other hand, there are a few serious problems. The movie takes a considerable amount of time to set things up. The pace of the movie is also a problem, with the story very slow going at times and with not much plot. (There's also not much action.) Also, at 107 minutes, the movie is way too long for its own good.

In the end, the movie is merely okay. Your enjoyment of the movie will depend on not only how much you like European westerns, but how tolerant you are of their occasional flaws.
