Trivia

At the end of the film, Little Moon (Stefanie Powers) says to Jebediah (James Caan) that he has killed everyone but the cameraman. Jebediah turns around and shoots the cameraman (who falls to the ground with the camera now filming from a low angle), breaking the fourth wall. See more »

The West Is A Mess
25 October 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Ex-convict James Caan is released from prison and sets out to exact some long overdue vengeance on Aldo Ray, the man who murdered his family years before and apparently the rest of the town as well.

There's some trashy fun at first but things run out of steam pretty quick and never recover.

A paper thin story, the obnoxious free-wheeling 1970's style direction, and the bad funk score are all pretty off-putting, as is the terrible performance by Stephanie Powers, who looks like Johnny Depp in Benny & Joon and is so verbally challenged she makes Tonto look like a radio talk show host!

The great Sammy Davis Jr. is sadly wasted in this. His leather-clad gunfighter character was the most entertaining thing in the movie and really deserved a better script!
