Plot:

Lucky, the bandit, is about to be shot by firing squad, but he is saved in the last second by "The Major". The reason is that The Major needs one half of a treasure map kept by Lucky, as he already has the other half.

This is a rare South African western which contains many of the ingredients of the SWs. In fact, it is not difficult to see in this movie a poor copy of GBU. Lucky the Bandit tries to emulate Tuco and The Major plays a role similar to Blondie.

Even if this is not a SW, I think that most of the genre lovers will enjoy this film.

As far as I know, there is no DVD release, but there are a few VHS copies available at eBay.

I would give this one 6/10.
