Anybody seen Macho Callahan (1970)?

It stars David Janssen and Jean Seberg. Janssen plays Callahan, who is a Civil War P.O.W. at the start and breaks out. Soon after, he needlessly kills a man, and then the man's wife tries to get revenge by offering reward money for his capture.

Overall, it's an okay movie. There was something about it I didn't care for but I really can't get into that since I don't want to spoil it. The movie has some brutal violence and I really liked that aspect of the movie (that gritty feel). Janssen is great as the cruel Callahan. Completely unsympathetic.
