A less than mediocre comedy western, though they put money into it. The problems are multifaceted: no screenplay (Dario Argento was embroiled into it?) and no comedians. Luc Merenda is good but for other kind of movies. He's no Terence Hill or Gemma and he just brings into the movie's brawl actions his savate technique. The bank robbery (which occupies a great part of the movie's second half) is elaborated and boring.  So is the final saloon brawl, played on some sports spoofs (people are thrown on basket's on rolled down like bowling pins). To be stayed away from.
