Audience Reviews for El Diablo

This is a very cheesy western. It's actually fairly entertaining to watch, although the plot is no great shakes.

Three diverse and colourful characters travel towards a rendezvous with their inner hero; all coming from very different start points and with, apparently, very different motives. This is a quirky, amusing and highly entertaining western with a great cast, great script and delivering considerable doses of pathos to balance the laughs. A very underrated movie.

I always liked this one . . . sort of a spoof on Westerns, and I never really liked Westerns anyway . . .
