She's just killing me too
11 April 2007 | by bygardSee all my reviews

A good solid 70's western of the revenge formula with one vital refreshing story point, a woman pursuing those who did her wrong. And she's not just any old cowgirl, as you may have noticed from the cast list. If the plot as a whole is not one of the most original, the great cast does give a good reason to see this movie. Raquel Welch does what she can in the bit limited role and she does it fine. Three western icons of Elam, Borgnine and Martin make a bunch of villains that is at the same time one of the most revolting and tracelessly funny. If you have liked them in earlier westerns of Peckinpah and Kennedy you get mostly the same great treatment here. Martin especially always ends up stealing the show as the most dangerous idiot in the west ever. Robert Culp gives a good performance as a bounty hunter and killer with a piece of heart still left and a sensible head. And for Christopher Lee fans like me, here he is noteworthy as always and apparently in his only western role of all the countless movie roles he has made. A pretty small role actually but it can't keep a great actor down.

The strong influences of Peckinpah and spaghetti westerns are pretty obvious and mix together surprisingly well. The plot could have deserved a bit more development but it gives fairly good enjoyment as it is, if you enjoy westerns in general. I consider this one of the better films from director Kennedy.
