Spaghetti western without much sauce
30 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Five men band together to avenge a friend who was murdered by a tyrannical landowner. There are a few rousing moments, thanks largely to Franco Salina's music, in which the heroes advance down a deserted town street in preparation for the big shootout, but for the most part proceedings are routinely plotted and without particular direction or style. Of the title quintet, only Guy Madison and Mariano Vidal Molina have defined characters.

There is a lively flogging of a shirtless peasant in the opening reel, and later Madison is staked out and left to fry under the blazing sun, but all his clothes are left on, perhaps in fear that his 43-year-old physique might have aged a bit too much for "beefcake" scenes. (Actually, even in a state past its prime, Guy Madison's bare chest would have been a sight to behold.)
