As a director, Eastwood is not as good as he seems to think he is. As an actor, he is probably better than he allows himself to be.

Eastwood's second directorial effort is mechanically stylish.

This was supposed to be Eastwood's fond adieu to the worlds of Sergio Leone and Don Siegel; and indeed he cuts the operatic excess of the former with the punchy economy of the latter.

Part ghost story, part revenge Western, more than a little silly, and often quite entertaining in a way that may make you wonder if you have lost your good sense.
