Not bad spaghetti western
9 June 2007 | by Johnboy1221See all my reviews

This gritty spaghetti western is not bad at all, mostly due to the interesting, believable performance of Chip Gorman. He's a handsome man, with lots of charisma, and his acting is better than average.

The performances are all fairly good, especially Rosemarie Dexter, as the desperado's love interest.

Piero Lulli was very convincing as the blind man, and Aldo Berti was amusing as the man who keeps assuming identities.

The story kept me guessing, most of the way through, interested to find out how it would end, and the surprise ending had me fooled.

Gorman has the smoldering looks and charisma to play both bad guys, and good guys. I will have to look for more of his films.
