Goofs

When the building containing the stolen treasure gets blown up, small amounts of gold coins are sporadically falling from the sky for the next several minutes. This clearly violates the laws of physics, since a single explosion would cause all the coins to disperse instantly and fall back on the ground a few seconds later. It is impossible for the coins to remain suspended in the air for as long as they do in that scene. See more »

Hallelujah For George Hilton!
5 June 2014 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Fake monk Hunt Powers travels around with a hollow wooden saint, filling it with stolen loot from elaborately staged bank robberies. Meanwhile, slacker George Hilton fistfights for fun and free drinks. When Powers' gang kills Hilton's sheriff brother and takes over the town, he's forced to take them on with help from Powers himself!

Things start off on a comedic note, before dramatically shifting to a darker, more violent tone, once the villains begin their standoff, then back to comedy in the last minute. It's tone is pretty uneven, to say the least.

On a whole though, there's plenty of action and suspense, with a few neat story touches here and there and some familiar European faces like Mario Brega and Erika Blanc.

You really can't go wrong with a western starring George Hilton. He has the right spirit, charisma, timing, and physicality to make just about anything he's in worth watching.
