http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066939/

The reviews at IMDB tell it all about this spanish movie. Only particular left unexplained and around which most of the plot revolves is why the sergeant brings his daughter with him. He must take seven lifers across the mountains and his daughter (Emma Cohen: some at IMDB call her "gorgeous": don't believe him) follows him as for a pic nic. With this kind of movie (based on the characters going from a place to others, establishing variable kinds of hierarchy) you must have some  character development: here's none. But can't find fault with the actors or the camera work, as some at IMDB did. It's the plot that is poor not helped by a good editing to give it a faster pace.  The gore parts are all in the spanish horror style: ridiculous. The score is better than a kick in the balls. And Robledo, as usual, dies.
5\10.

Being a fan of Spanish horror (and  most westerns)...
I wish there was a good DVD of this film.

Agree with Titoli, although I'd give it a 6/10 just because the plot is rather atypical for the genre.
The bloody violence isn't as brutal as one might expect, although I would consider this more gory than Django Kill.


And that girl isn't gorgeous. She is passably attractive.

Even the overdone gore doesn't prevent this movie from being as dull as hell and the soundtrack is so irritating.

i say 4 out of 10. Huh
