A very nice Brazilian western
12 November 2017 | by rodrigokazumaSee all my reviews

If you like western movies, you gonna like this movie. You gonna see a little bit of our northeast, with a lot of violence. The Fx is not so good, but I think it is not a problem. Just relax and understand this is a very low production. For me, the best is the story line and the (unknown) actor with excellent role play. Just watch.
