Very good action packed movie. The single reviewer at IMDB finds problem with this and I probably would if all this action wasn't supported by a steady change of landscape which is the most impressive element of the movie. This is one to be seen on the big screen to be evaluated impartially. Still one is fascinated by the view of some spanish landscapes probably used in other movies as well but that to me look new. Apart from the location of the Indian camp (among little falls and small woods) the other have the typical southwestern look but imposing, like you find only in Leone. The plot has Harrison arriving in a small town ruled by a villain who, to make money, didn't hesitate to kill a woman(in the very first scene of the movie: a very good one) and provoke a Indian massacre. Harrison id mistaken for one of his victims but that doen't prevent him from making money.  There are many sublots to the main story and this also add to the variety. So this gets 7\10. The score by Nicolai (supervisioned by the Maestro) it's not very original. But I like the song sung by Boby Solo. And a slow tune reminds me of the main theme of UOTA.
