Storyline

Mexican land-owner Gutierrez offers to save Chad Stark from hanging if Stark will agree to find and return Gutierrez' runaway son, Fidel. Stark soon finds Fidel who's joined up with an outlaw band run by Stark's former acquaintance, "the Major." Stark tricks the Major into letting him take Fidel to lay the groundwork for a projected train robbery. Stark then forces Fidel on a hazardous journey across a desert where they meet up with the Londonderry family heading west to California. Back at the Gutierrez ranch with the unhappy Fidel, Stark discovers that Fidel is not Gutierrez' son. It seems the woman Gutierrez married was, unbeknownst to him, already pregnant with another man's son. Gutierrez is now determined to avenge his honor by killing Fidel. A shoot-out results with deadly results, especially after the Major arrives on the scene. When the dust settles, Stark heads off to California where he hopes to meet up with the Londonderry's pretty daughter. Joining him is ... Fidel! Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

a fairly decent spaghetti western
18 June 2006 | by spider89119See all my reviews

This movie has an interesting story and plenty of gun-blazing action. The overall plot is easy to follow, but could have been smoothed out a bit more. I'm not sure if the English version was poorly edited or if the production was a bit sloppy to begin with, but it just seems like some of the events in the story need a little more background or explanation than is given.

Brian Kelly and Fabrizio Moroni give very good performances in the lead roles. Moroni seems kind of like a 19 year-old Tomas Milian in this film. The other actors are just so-so. Keenan Wynn's performance is a bit disappointing considering that he is the most well-known actor in the film.

This is not one of the most highly stylistic Euro-westerns, but it does have it's moments, especially near the end.

The best thing about this movie is the music score. In fact, it's almost too good for the film. I don't remember ever seeing the name of this composer, Sante Maria Romitelli, before. But if I ever do again, I will surely take notice.

All things considered, this is a pretty entertaining film for spaghetti western fans.
