At italian db they say that this is, literally, "one of Garrone's more worst" movies, "Slow and going nowhere in the first half and  with the usual revenge in the second". I say, on the contrary, that in the first part the movie is very entertaining, that the build-up to the crime by the gang of brothers against the family of Eastman  is well conducted by mixing different themes with an effective alternate editing. I think that the only fault could be found in the not great inventiveness of the revenge modalities. But this affect only the last 20 minutes of the movie. All in all I'd give this 7 out of 10.
Ty Hardin is here at his best because he's seen less than usual. Eastman just doesn't fit into a doctor's clothes, though he's good as usual. Laura Troschel demonstrates that some women get better with age.

That must be pretty bad then. I have yet to see a "good" Garrone movie.

Hey! I stand corrected! That one was pretty good! And it had exploitation vets Dakar and Mariangelo Giordano in it as well to up the enjoyment level.

I saw this about two years ago and the only reason I'm bringing it up now is because I'm prepping for my Ty Hardin interview and came on here to see what you guys thought of this flick.
From what I remember it was horrible. Probably Garrone's worst SW effort. Not a lot of shooting and a plot that moved slower than molasses.
The story was something to do with George Eastman coming back home from Medical school. His little sister is targetted by a threesome of nasties. They rape her and, I think, kill his brother (Ty Hardin).
Eastman shoots the three pole cats down in the climax.
I seem to recall the score being memorably though and for that this movie gets a 2 out of 10 instead of something lower.



2/10
