Gritty crime drama with a western setting with solid performances from Harris, Taylor and Lettieri.

perfect dble feature with sam pechinpah's 'the wild bunch' this owes a big debt to the 1969 hit western that was also extremely bloody and violent.

Violent revenge western focusing on a once pacifist sheriff now out for blood at any cost. Harris plays well in the lead, and shows great range as his character goes through an entire array of emotions. Examines questions of morality, duty and justice in believing fashion. Smells like (and unfolds) like spaghetti, even though it really isn't. Great supporting villains, too - including one with a piece of railroad track for a hand. Good, but short of great.

The first few minutes of the film must have been damaged in storage , because it goes frame by frame till the bank robbery. The movie is ok, but kinda slow.

Terrific flick! Richard Harris is awesome as usual, those of you that aren't film aficionados may remember him as The Duke of Death (Duck says I) from Eastwood's UNFORGIVEN or as Dumbeldore in the first Harry Potter flick. Just think of this as prequel to UNFORGIVEN. The Duck himself in the wild west, this is a chilling dark, moody, western in the same vein as Sam Peckinpah's THE WILD BUNCH. Having Neville Brand in your movie doesn't hurt either. I award this film 2500 bonus points for that bit of casting.

Movie that is very much in line with other Westerns of the early 70's. The Sergio Leone-Sam Peckinpah influence is present. Excellent cast, and the setting in old Mexico gives it a spaghetti Western/Wild Bunch feel.

A guilty pleasure, with Richard Harris vs. Rod Taylor and his colorful band of scum. Neville Brand is hysterical as a villain named Choo Choo who sports a length of railroad track improbably attached to his stump of a hand. A young Paul Benjamin is also great as an intellectual ex-slave, with William Smith as his idiot counterpart named Schoolboy.

The opening sequence is an obvious riff on that of The Wild Bunch, and likely the work of Sam Fuller. In general, it is pretty amazing that this was a PG considering the amount of child endangerment and outright murder going on. Al Lettieri does not show up until the third act, and his role is a bit of a disappointment despite providing a satisfyingly ironic end.

I believe my Mom and Me participated in this movie. It was filmed in Mexico. We were extras at the time.
