This starts well, with the usual revenge story, but at a certain point it degenerates into 3d hand slapstick and never recovers. A pity because there was some good element (especially female: a breasty blonde (a whore?)  in particular), like Baldassarre as the black-clad killer. 
But it is impossible not to be aware of the similitudes with DYS, with the character of Sancho clearly related to Steiger's and the episode of the stagecoach heist clearly inspired by Leone's movie. Or was it the reverse?
The music is notable for the use of free jazz like music during the posada brawl. But sometimes seems not to be aware of the scene it is supposed to be commenting. But two or three tunes well adapt themeselves to the scenes they're played upon.
