Storyline

Ravaging the land like a pitiless scourge, Vee Duncan's savage gang of cutthroats massacre the entire tribe of a peaceful Navajo village, scalping them all for a dollar apiece. With his companion brutally murdered, the Navajo native and the slaughter's sole survivor, Joe, stealthily pursues the blood-thirsty outlaws on their way to the small town of Esperanza, where a treacherous member of the community encourages Duncan to hijack a government train crammed with cash. Their well-thought strategy guarantees success; however, Navajo Joe still thirsts for retribution. Can a single man foil the plans of Duncan's ferocious crowd of killers? Written by Nick Riganas

One of the great spaghetti westerns
14 August 1999 | by MoonDawg-3See all my reviews

As in Django, Corbucci has here created a memorable loner anti-hero who dispenses his own brand of justice. Great job by Burt Reynolds as Navajo Joe; great soundtrack by Morricone (recently sampled as the "shock music" in the movie Election).
