Directed by Gianfranco Baldanello.

A ranch is burning down,and its occupants are being shot to pieces by a band of Mexicans,but just before they can finish of the last man,Jeff Benson(Carl Mohner) charges in on his steed guns a blazing.The Mexicans beat a quick retreat though they manage to take along a whole load of horses with them.

Benson and his new friend Jerry ride on into Canyon City looking for work.Canyon City is reeling from constant raids and harassment from bandit El Diablo's gang and to make matters worse the sheriffs untrustworthy son Victor Webb and his henchmen is causing further violent friction amongst the towns inhabitants.In fact Canyon City is running so scared that there is no-one left that is brave enough to risk moving rancher Randalls cattle ,because each time it seems that El Diablo is being tipped off ,the herd are stolen and the witnesses murdered.There's also the matter of a gold shipment to worry about,so predictably our heroes  Jeff and Jerry step up to the task.

This western is very American in style and Mohner is  quite a bland hero.The story is also a bit on the uninteresting side  but fortunately the sadistic El Diablo gang are there to liven things up somewhat.Things are also improved in a very decent finale involving an attempted train heist with Mexicans attacking from the outside,but also a rival interested party on board the train.

My rating an average 5 out of 10 Huh

I give it 7\10. I like Staccioli (great) and also Torres (I prefer him as mexican dude than as his usual peone. The problem is that Mohner can't be their match, that's where the main fault lies: the hero is anonymous. But it has good rhythm, good narrative twist (the train finale) and a beautiful woman.

Actually, two beautiful women.  Wink

I also side more with Banjo's review, as this movie is quite uninteresting albeit fairly well made. A few funny gags from Antonio Garisa can give the viewer some good chuckles.

5.5/10
