This can leave you speechless. One wonders if the incongruities of the plot are part of a scheme by the people who wrote the movie just for the hell of being sadist toward the scarce intelligence of the viewers who decided to enter a theatre to watch it or are just the fruit of their various ineptitudes.
The hero (Bret Halsey) is about to buy a ranch to live there with his woman when he discovers, back to his hut, that a gang of seven is waiting for him after having stolen his money and killed his woman. They beat him and decide to let him live  because, as the gang leader Fernando Sancho says, "he won't ever be able to find us". In facts, after Halsey revives and makes sure his money is gone (only after that check he worries to see if his woman is dead or not) he finds them in a day or two and kills them one by one, discovering the ultimate truth that the gang of seven is actually bigger.
Still this gets 6\10 from me because some scenes are imaginative (f.e. the killing from the back, the desert episode well-shot with a crane, and the hitchcockian (Rope) final passage from a close up to a zoomed shot). The score is by FOD soloist Michele Lacerenza (which means we have practically an uninterrupted deguello from start to finish, or almost).

No.

The more known title, in the english language, is Wrath.
