This is a living paradigm of what Leone was against in western: the clean-cut hero, the woman, the indians, the priest, her father: you name it. But most of all it is a highly static movie, with interminable spoken sequences filled with cliched dialogues.At IMDB the reviewer from Texas makes a great case about the movie's main theme being racism. But to choose a socially relevant theme for a genre movie is almost invariably a shortcut to boredom. In fact I recommend it to insomniac.
