Firecracker's review taken from his Crappiest Sw's guide:-

  review for Kid Vengeance

Though alot  of you have already heard about the crappy reputation this film has, perhaps you are not familiar as to WHY it has a crappy reputation. well trust me, there are plenty of reasons WHY.

the premise is the same tired old plot of "revenge for slaughtered family" plotline only with a twist(unfortunatly not a good one) a child is the one seeking revenge for his family that was killed by outlaws. the outlaw gang is run by none other than Lee van cleef himself, and i sure as hell wish he didnt. this movie is an insult to his filmography. he looks like a deranged hippie who hasnt gotten laid since woodstock. and his usually good "tough guy" acting decided to take a holiday while filming this awful rubbish. It is painful to see such a great talent go to waste right before youre eyes. but painful or not, it happens. luckily he is underused in the film(normally that is a bad thing, but aint.).
child actor Lief Garret doesnt fair much better as the vengeance seeking little tyke. his role is to just look pissed during his journey for justice and cry while his mom is being raped by Van cleef. oh and i forgot to mention he is on the trail not only for revenge but to save his big sister whom the bandits kidnapped to sell off to a child slave labor camp.

now in its defense there are a few clever things that the kid does to exact his revenge. oh who am i kidding? he does one thing that was interesting. while one of the bandits are asleep the kid sneaks up to his boot and puts a snake in it. when the bandit wakes up he puts the boot on and OUCH! one dead bandit. Intreresting killings that could have saved the film from being an utter disgrace END HERE.
anyway, along the way the kid meets up with Jim Brown and he decides to help the kid upon his quest for some reason(i dont know why though, i am sure there was a good valid reason for it, but at this point were an hour into the film and i was a good 20 minutes into a daydream at that point in the film). there is nothing to criticize Jim Brown about here, because he doesnt do much of anything to praise or criticize. there isnt much more to say here. i could make a list with 100 reasons why this film sucks but what is the point? you know it sucks, I know it sucks. nuff said. this is for sure the top five worst spaghetti westerns out there. dont waste youre time.

remember i watch this trite, so you dont have to.
