Second Best of the Series
23 April 1999 | by granlSee all my reviews

Of the four M7 films, I'd rate this number 2 - after the original, of course. It's also the hardest to find. I saw it in the theatre when it was released and caught it late night once. Chris is asked to do his usual bit of chasing off banditos but refuses. He's married and settled down now - not interested in adventure. But then his wife is killed. Chris heads south. "He did my job, now I'll do his." His helpers this time are a bunch of cut-throats he finds in the local prison. (Someone must have seen 'The Dirty Dozen' along the way.) Lots of good action shootouts. Lee Van Cleef is great playing his usual, 'Man with the Gunsight Eyes'.
