Storyline

Luke Barrett regains his consciousness and finds himself laying in the desert dust next to a dead man. Also, next to him is a rifle with the word 'Dingus' carved on its stock. Luke cannot remember anything that happened, who he is or how he got there. A bullet grazed his head and gave him a concussion. He has temporary amnesia. Nevertheless, he collects a few useful things from the scene of the shooting, picks up a horse and heads toward the nearest town. In town he goes to the saloon for a drink to help clear his head. In the saloon, a stranger clad in black greets him by his name and asks him why he's late. He also asks where Donovan is. Luke decides to play along in order to find out more about himself. Through conversations with the stranger and other townsfolk who seem to know a lot about him, Luke starts piecing together the facts. That's how he finds out that he, Luke Barrett, and partner Donovan were hired by the stranger clad in black clothing to kill Victor Barrett, a ... Written by nufs68

One of the worst Spaghetti-Western
19 October 2001 | by cengelmSee all my reviews

Film tells a mystery story about a man who lost his memory and tries to resume his past. His father and his wife got murdered and he is now looking for the murderer. Clues lead to "Dingus" but who is Dingus? Klaus Kinski is one of the 2 leads and he is enigmatic as usual. Overall the story is completely unconvincing, many people must have known Luke's past but no one tells. All characters do their best to add to the mystery. There is also a strange character shift from bad to good in Luke and the opening with the vultures(obviously archive footage) is never explained. Only recommendable for die hard fans of the subgenre and Klaus Kinski.

2 / 10.
