Storyline

The Silers' gang is chasing Apache Chief Winnetou and his sister Nscho-chi, after having killed several Apaches to steal their horses. Winnetou and his sister run into a group of trappers led by Old Firehand. The trappers help Winnetou and his sister Nscho-chi evade the Silers' gang. Together, they head for the border town of Miramonte. In Miramonte, the Mexican Sergeant Mendozza and his men have captured and imprisoned Billy-Bob Silers, the young brother of the Silers' gang leader.

Quite good and interesting spaghetti western
8 December 2015 | by talivcirxSee all my reviews

I don't understand these negative reviews. No doubts, "Winnetou and Firehand" isn't very great masterpiece like Sergio Leone's "Once upon time in the West", but it's interesting, dynamic action with very effective battle scenes, with splendid soundtrack by Peter Thomas - one of the greatest music in movies about native Americans '(like Trevor Jone's - "The Last of the mohicans", 1992, and Martin Bottcher's - other Winnetou films). Alfred's Vohrer's direction is energetic. photographs of Croatian landscape is impressive. The cast is professional, characters are well characterized. Especially I like beautiful, romantic brother and sister - Pierre's Brice's Winnetou and Marie Versini's Nscho-tschi, Nadia Gray as Michelle (convincing drama of lonely woman), Harald Leipnitz as fanatic avenger Silers, Aleksander Gavric as Derks. The humor and seriousness are well balanced in this film. It's pleasant to see it. To my mind, one of the best movies about Winnetou.
