Not quite bad as the original, but without those 2-3 great moments which made the first one worth watching. And of course the cast is not stellar one of the first. Still this have some points over the other one: it is shot in Spain and not in the swiss Alps, doesn't have any mawkish man-woman dialogue, the narrative rhythm is faster. Good performances by the mexicans and spanish, less for the gringos. The score is the one reason this series was so famous and here it is proved beyond objection.

I enjoyed the third film the best and it seems to have had a higher budget than the second film. There is an embarrasing shot in RETURN OF...when the group are first riding off together and the film crew is seen silouetted against a building.
