This gets 7\10 from me because it's got a good rhythm, which it never lets down except maybe, around the middle. The plot it's not very original but it orchestrates well many clichés and situations, bringing also some originality toward the end. What I don't like is Harrison's wearing glasses: it bothers me so much watching him in close-ups! Women look fine though here.
The plot is, basically, bad yankees against mexicans, with Harrison taking parts with the latter, though there's apparently also a revenge story involved. The finale veers definitely toward horror-thriller plot techniques and Harrison proves himself to be quite a sadist (but this movie was apparently directed by two different people, which may explain the change). But even then the movie likes changing everything and offer a different motivation behind the charachter's choice.
Score is good, rewarding also a separate listening session.

Agreed with Titoli. I'd even go as far to give it a 8/10.
This was a big surprise for me because Harrison's vehicles are usually bores or sub-par action movies.
The first hour doesn't have a lot of action but the situations Harrsion finds himself in are unique enough to keep the plot moving at a brisk pace. The final half hour turns into a slasher movie where Harrison stalks, and kills, all nine of the perpetrators with bowie knives.
Unfortunatly my bootleg copy is defective and I'm not able to see the final moments where Bodalo (and another accomplice) is trapped in the town and Harrsion is somewhere waiting to pounce.


The score, I can't remember but the title song is a lot of campy fun! Afro



As for the women...I seem to recall Harrison's main squeeze to be quite the looker.
And forgive me if I am mistaken, but is the girl in the mexican Pueblo good looking as well?
It's been a year since I've seen this and my memory is hazy.

The director's (Nick Nostro) first western effort seems like it could be a good one as well...

You probably missed the movie's best part: the finale gives an original turn to the way the hero extricates himself from a difficult situation. I didn't remark the fact, BTW, that the two main villains are very good, expecially Gozlino. The way Harrison kills them all one after another starting with the killing in the saloon, it effectively obtains that mixtuire of western and thriller (or horror) that  Margheriti was inanely aiming at in AGSTC. I'd give too 8\10 to the last part of the movie, maybe even more: it is hard that one of these movies keeps me glued to the seat or wakes me up from the sleep I was induced abround the middle part. This managed to.

There is more than one good looker in the mexican pueblo.

Anyway, at the italian SWDB (where they are not overly enthusiastic about the movie) they say that Nostro wrote the story and screenplay and directed some scenes but the movie's essentially Ignacio Iquino's.

I got the final minutes to work properly and I see your point. The climax is very satisfying (a rare occasion most of the time I'm afraid) although I found it silly that Bodalo would "look for the bullet" when he could have just continued to fan the gun and find it quicker.
