I slept twice through this and was going for a third but forced myself to watch it without fastforwarding so that the board might be informed. do not thank me.
Usual revenge story with not a single moment of originality. The story goes through the motion, the actors same, music same. This is one of the movies made before or just a little after FOD. No violence, no humor, no unshaven faces (only one, actually) and, of course, no blood.
A curiosity: during a chase the hero (a poor man's Sterling Hayden) and the ex-sheriff who takes him into custody are shot from the riding band of thugs from behind. The sheriff falls from the horse, the hero keeps going, the gang surpasses the sheriff and also the hero who goes back to help the sheriff, without turning immediately back.
But who cares?

It would appear that this was never released to the English speaking nations which judging by your opinion is just as well :)

I don't think euro movies weren't released abroad without good reason, though some good movies were left out of circulation (like it happened to the Wicker Man in Italy). The same doesn't go for hollywood crap which is imposed to the foreign market because of the commercial strenght of the majors. 

I have some of the same kind to watch (one features a couple of spanish twin girls), but you'll have to wait because a vision of those movies needs a spiritual training.
